Service Catalog component of BMC Atrium CMDB
The Service Catalog provides centralized management of business services across BMC products. It enables you to define in BMC Atrium Configuration Management Database (BMC Atrium CMDB) a common list of services that IT provides to the business. You can use BMC Atrium Explorer to dynamically update the infrastructure configuration items (CIs) related to these services by using queries and templates.
Relating services to infrastructure CIs in your CMDB enables an IT organization to:
- Establish and set clear expectations for service delivery.
- Rationalize data across IT processes based on a business context.
- Provide a service-oriented approach to enable management reporting.
With the Service Catalog, you can access a list of all the business services and their supporting technical services. For more information about the Service Catalog, see Administering service models and the Service Catalog.
