Activity in 2012


The main focus of the ITIL Service Management team during 2012 has been to continue the development of the ServiceNow tool to support the Service Catalogue and to implement additional applications to underpin or assist the introduction of various new services.

We have also extended our involvement in the coordination of ITS related activity in support of annual University Events. There are now 16 such events which Service Management coordinate on behalf of the department.

  • Enables customers to request various standard Telephony offerings through the ServiceNow Service Catalogue.
