- Providing the foundation for informed and cost-effective decision-making to better align IT systems and services to the ever-changing needs of the business.
- Reducing resolution times by cutting across organizational silos, ensuring that the right information from incident, problem, change, release, or asset records is accessible through a single pane.
- Delivering flexible process workflows and templates that IT pros can adapt to their organization’s requirements.
- Extending the value the Microsoft platform delivers by automating the processes and activities among System Center products.
