BMC Service Request Management overview

BMC Service Request Management overview
BMC Service Request Management enables the IT department and other business
departments to define offered services, publish those services in a service catalog,
and automate thefulfillment of those services for their users. With BMC Service
Request Management, users have the ability to help themselves, which reduces the
requests coming in to the service desk. This enables IT professionals to focus on
more mission-critical activities, such as resolving incidents related to service
failures and restoring critical services. The application also provides the ability to
automateworkflows for each service, enforcing consistency of process and faster
fulfillment of the request.

Request Management 7.6.00.
