PMG Service Catalog Suite (PMG SCS) and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) Integration

MOSS has taken-off in the Enterprise and has been one of Microsoft’s most successful product lines in its history. This robust platform provides enormous potential for collaboration and efficiencies, but specific applications to solve key problems might remain elusive or difficult and expensive to develop. If you’ve already invested in the MOSS platform and are looking to deploy a Service Catalog solution or implement ITIL, COBIT, ISO, etc. PMG has provided the industry’s only fully SharePoint-compatible solution.

MOSS compatibility is no small feat and goes well beyond integrating simple web-based content. A true actionable Service Catalog and Service Portfolio Management solution contains hundreds of user and management-specific features that would be nearly impossible to build from scratch, let alone be built using out of the box SharePoint components and Microsoft tools.

PMG delivers a fully integrated SharePoint solution which provides a seamless experience for end users and managers. PMG makes all components of its industry-leading Service Catalog Suite available as Web Parts that users can pick and choose to live in their sites. All services and content created is fully compatible with SharePoint search.

PMG SCS SharePoint web parts include:

  1. Featured Services. This web part can display your most popular or most-viewed/requested services. User can click any of the graphical icons and descriptions and go straight into the dynamic request forms and online ordering via PMG SCS iRequest shopping cart.

  2. My Work/Messages. For those familiar with PMG SCS, they know it provides a user interface for all parties: end users, management, and fulfillment/service provider. My Work/Messages is an area that alerts the service providers that they have tasks and work to perform to complete requests or workflows such as approvals or task assignments.

  3. Web Worklist. The web worklist is your “inbox” for tasks, approvals, and other actions that have been assigned to you via user requests or workflows. You can interact and complete all of these items via this web part within SharePoint. As a manager, you can also view and manage groups/queues and assign/re-allocate work items among team members.

  4. My Request History. For the end user who makes service requests, they have a virtually insatiable demand to know the real-time status of their requests and when they will be fulfilled. My Request History provides real-time textual and drill-down graphical views that provide rich status information.

  5. Services ; Service Request Forms. Using these web parts, PMG SCS services and service request forms are rendered natively in SharePoint where users can learn about products and services, interact in real-time, order requestable services, submit forms, etc.

  6. Reports. PMG SCS Reports and analytics are made available and rendered within SharePoint. The more than 60 out of the box reports and any custom reports and dashboards can be made available to specific users or groups via SharePoint.
