Comprehensive Service Catalog Provided By PMG for Cloud Computing

By Carolyn J Dawson, TMCnet Contributor

The PMG (News - Alert) Service Catalog Suite or SCS from, Inc. now contains a highly comprehensive and widespread cloud computing service catalog. Being a leading provider of technology for business process automation and enterprise service catalogs, PMG’s latest technology has now enabled organizations to advance their capabilities to improved heights. Organizations that are running the PMG SCS (News - Alert) for IT, enterprise and department catalogs can power their hybrid cloud, public and private, as well as IaaS, or Infrastructure-as-a-service, schemes.

For the year 2011, the cloud computing services are the top priority for CIOs as per a Gartner (News - Alert) survey of 2000+ CIOs. As such, many of the enterprises offering cloud computing have come to realize that they require a highly extensive service catalog in order to enhance their cloud program. With the dependence on cloud computing steadily on the rise, IT teams within each organization are required to offer services with the same agility, speed, performance and price as compared to outsourced services. The ideal service catalog in this case becomes both a “front end” and “back end” of the cloud, with uninterrupted workflows, auto-provisioning, and meeting a perfectly deployed solution.

The PMG SCS service provides an online experience along with a customer portal in order to browse, order, configure and deliver real-time cloud and IaaS services despite the location of its back-end technologies, or the employed personnel of providers or resources. IaaS is a model that any organization uses to provision the equipment needed for operations, storage, services, networking parts and hardware. These are delivered by dynamic cloud resources provisioned on-demand.

The new release of the PMG SCS from, Inc. has highly enhanced integration connectors for SAP, VMWare, Microsoft (News - Alert) Active Delivery and Microsoft System Center, among others. Customers have the capability of automating their business processes and attaining operational excellence goals in the service delivery category with the use of this robust and comprehensive offering from PMG.
