AWS Service Catalog allows organizations to create and manage catalogs of IT services that are approved for use on AWS. These IT services can include everything from virtual machine images, servers, software, and databases to complete multi-tier application architectures. AWS Service Catalog allows you to centrally manage commonly deployed IT services, and helps you achieve consistent governance and meet your compliance requirements, while enabling users to quickly deploy only the approved IT services they need.
Ensure Compliance with Corporate Standards
AWS Service Catalog provides a single location where organizations can centrally manage catalogs of IT services. With AWS Service Catalog you can control which IT services and versions are available, the configuration of the available services, and permission access by individual, group, department, or cost center.
Help Employees Quickly Find and Deploy Approved IT Services
With AWS Service Catalog, you define your own catalog of AWS services and AWS Marketplace software, and make them available for your organization. Then, end users can quickly discover and deploy IT services using a self-service portal.
Centrally Manage IT Service Lifecycle
AWS Service Catalog enables you to add new versions of IT services as necessary, and end users are notified so they can easily keep abreast of the latest updates. With AWS Service Catalog you can control the use of IT services by specifying constraints, such as the AWS region in which a product can be launched or allowed IP ranges.
Connect with ITSM / ITOM Software
IT Service Management (ITSM) tools, such as ServiceNow, can connect with AWS Service Catalog to make it easier for ITSM platform
users to request AWS services and resources. The AWS Service Catalog Connector for Service Now simplifies AWS product provisioning for ServiceNow users and provides ServiceNow administrators governance and oversight over AWS products.
