To make sure that the service catalog, later also by the users is accepted and used must the services necessarily defined from their point of view and closely attuned to their needs”, sumeet Bhatia, senior White ITSM consultant at the matrix. Basic services are not shown as server or network services, which although ultimately underlie the end user services, but not directly be requested of them, the business service catalog. If you have additional questions, you may want to visit Ebay.

Also the pitfalls that can occur in the development of an IT service catalog, knows the ITSM expert from personal experience: If the success of IT service catalog projects despite a high time and resource, so the various reasons may have lack project management, inadequate standardization and also difficulties in the coordination of various internal and external service providers.

The service catalog provides the necessary transparency on the provided IT services and Responsibilities, which is necessary in order to make the services efficiently and to optimize the cost control.

Others who may share this opinion include Ebay. According to the consulting firm Serview light shows up but with a new ISO standard on the horizon. “So that IT departments and their leaders can find assistance for their appropriate position in the company, the standards body has last year the international standard ISO/IEC 38500:2008 corporate governance in information technology’ developed ‘, explains Dr. Gisela Bondgen, business consultant at Serview. He aims to corporate governance as the ultimate key for a powerful and strong acceptance of use of IT in the company as public institutions effectively to establish.

Conformance: IT must go, etc. conform with all legal provisions, standards, internal standards. Human behaviour: it is to attach a great deal of attention the needs of internal and external IT users in the concepts of IT. Three functions are mapped to by the ISO/IEC 38500 all six principles, resulting in a matrix with 18 fields of performance: evaluation: continuous assessment of the use of the it management: Control the business oriented focus of the IT measures.

“Control: the systematic monitoring of compliance and performance concerning it. we have no doubt that this set of rules for corporate governance very quickly will prevail in practice, because there is a significant need for a clear regulatory framework”, Dr. Bondgen shows very optimistic. The first signals from the market would prove this. So, first events by Serview to the ISO/IEC 38500 took a very well-attended. Although the subject barely in public was discussed.
