PMG's Use Case scores were also the highest in the report, with increases in the following categories: overall, IT service catalog administrator, IT service catalog user, cloud catalog, and IT leadership. Product scores also improved up to one full point in the following areas: integration to cloud provisioning, service level expectations and performance norms, cost of service requests, and integration to other data sources & fulfillment tools.

"We believe our continued recognition by Gartner, as well as the tremendous success of our customers validates that PMG is a leader of enterprise service catalog solutions," said Joe LeCompte, principal of PMG. "We credit our customers' feedback and our team's dedication to delivering the best solutions possible."

PMG's Cloud Accelerator (http://www.pmg.net/solutions/cloud/accelerator), which enables data center administrators and end users to easily request and manage virtual infrastructure in the cloud, contributed to high marks in the area of cloud provisioning, with the categories of integration to cloud provisioning earning a top score of 5 and cloud catalog use cases scoring a 4.5.

PMG SCS's new theme and branding capabilities enable customization of the service catalog for a greatly enhanced user experience.
