Top Customer Reviews
The view for Service Catalogs offered in this book is limited to web store type of catalogs. Authors are working for newScale, so it is obvious that they promote their own products.
a) This book provides useful list of benefits that are achievable with well managed Service Catalog and thus helps to build the business case for it.
b) It provides also useful guidance for implementation.
WITH THE CONDITION that you are looking for Service Catalog with Amazon.com like shopping chart functionality. It does not provide much insight about Service Catalogs with different emphasis.
This is a deceptively short book. You could blow through it in a quiet afternoon, but you won't. You'll fire up Visio or OneNote, or sketch and scribble madly as you apply ideas to problems in your enterprise as fast as you can write, as fast as you can read.
Buy several copies. Make this book required reading throughout your IT organization -- starting with yourself.
