Service Catalogue

Service Catalogue

What is it?

The Service Catalogue is a curated document that details all the technology related services that can be performed by, for or within an organisation. Service Catalogues allow employees of an organisation to route requests for and about services, and service related topics, to the subject matter experts who own, are accountable for, and operate them. The Service Catalogue is the only part of the Service Portfolio that is published to customers and is used to support the delivery of IT services. The Service Catalogue is generic and can be applied across all platforms, environments or geographical locations of any organization.

Why is it important?

An IT Service Catalogue describes services in clear, concise business terminology, helping employees and customers to better understand the services available to them and how they are executed.
