Chapter Description

In this chapter from CCNA Cloud CLDADM 210-455 Official Cert Guide, Cisco cloud experts Chris Jackson, Hank Preston, and Steve Wasko introduce the Cisco Prime Service Catalog and how it helps manage requests for IT services.

This chapter provides an introduction to Cisco Prime Service Catalog, a platform that incorporates an easy-to-use portal with a shopping cart checkout process that is similar to the process used by popular online retailers. The portal enables anyone within your company to request applications and services from your cloud infrastructure. Prime Service Catalog automates the delivery of these applications and services quickly, and removes the burden of coordinating the various complex interactions within IT that would take hundreds of phone calls and emails and take weeks or months to get your application deployed.
