Defining the service model
Defining the service model involves establishing a list of all the IT resources that should be represented in the service model. This information should include the following items:
- Each resource's name or component identification pattern
- Its location or site
Use this information later in the design phase and when creating service model components.
The first step in developing a service model is to design its logical architecture. To do this, you must analyze the IT environment to:
- Identify the resources that make up the service model.
- Determine the functional relationships and dependencies between various resources that can affect services.
