New Offering Includes Modeling Workshop, Mentoring and Usage of PMG Service Catalog Suite

Atlanta, Ga. - August 24, 2010 - Leading full service IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions provider Third Sky, Inc., and Inc., the technology leader for enterprise service catalogs, today announced availability of a joint Service Catalog Quick Start Program. This new offering combines Third Sky's acclaimed Service Catalog workshop and consulting with usage of PMG Service Catalog Suite (PMG SCS) software, empowering companies to quickly define and deploy their first online and fully actionable service catalog.
"By combining Third Sky's Service Catalog expertise with PMG's market leading software, IT teams can quickly complete the definition of services in their Service Catalog and publish it for draft review," said Lou Hunnebeck, Vice President of ITSM Vision & Strategy for Third Sky. "This allows the momentum from the modeling workshop to carry forward to drive rapid completion of an organization's service catalog," Hunnebeck continued.

  • Begin the cultural shift from a system-oriented perspective to a service-oriented perspective
