Serena Service Manager
IT organizations struggle with keeping pace with the growing demand from their business counterparts for new and differentiated products and services. One of the biggest challenges lies in being able to clarify, justify and prioritize these requests for new services.
Serena's solutions can help implement an ITIL Service Strategy, the starting point of an ITIL Service Lifecycle. Serena Request Center provides organizations with a centralized portal for capturing all requests for new services that can then be funneled into Serena Demand Manager to help with costing and prioritizing the delivery of these services.

Prioritizing work is just the first step in an ITIL service strategy. Providing an accurate view of the available resources is also essential. As IT team members close out service requests or complete development tasks, Serena Demand Manager logs the effort, giving IT leadership a real-time view of how resources are being used to fulfill demand. This helps them make informed decisions around when new work can be taken on, how reallocation of projects and resources impacts business, and where there are shortages of critical resources – crucial for implementing a pragmatic ITIL service strategy.
