Request Management

Submit, track and update requests in Windows Azure Pack

Request Management in Windows Azure Pack

Windows Azure Pack delivers Microsoft Cloud technologies and capabilities to your data center and includes both a unified cloud platform framework and federated authentication. Add business processes, custom services and customer support by integrating Microsoft System Center Service Manager™ with Windows Azure Pack using Request Management for Windows Azure Pack.


Self-Service

Let your users submit requests in seconds using intuitive wizards. Users can request services, log incidents and track progress. Their requests are then processed by System Center Service Manager.

Service Catalog

The integrated service catalog is the way for users to request pre-defined resources and services. It contains enhanced wizard experience, icons, description, fields, price and automation workflows.

Resource Management

Allows users to view and manage native resources as well as custom CMDB resources in a single-pane view. Action buttons can be added to perform tasks or log an issue on the managed resource.

Automation

Using request templates in System Center Service Manager, complex workflows can be authored, driving automation to its limit. Both Orchestrator runbooks and SMA runbooks can be integrated.

Human Interaction

Real-life workflows are not all about automation – sometimes a person needs to interact with the process, for example, where an approval is required or manual labour is needed.

Platform Integration

Our integration allows us to take advantage of platform-identity federation capabilities. We also feed the usage provider by allowing consumption-based billing on Request Management.
