CA Technologies said today that it has launched CA Nimsoft Service Desk 7 (NSD), the latest version of its flagship SaaS service management solution.
CA NSD 7 delivers the full power of IT service management with a user experience enabling even those who have never used a service management system to request IT services and initiate problem resolution without any training. By leveraging familiar attributes from social media and consumer web sites, CA NSD 7 empowers end-users and IT staff to work together more quickly, easily and reliably than ever.
As a true multi-tenant SaaS solution, CA NSD 7 enables organizations of all kinds to achieve their service management objectives without capital investment. The SaaS model also enables MSPs to fulfill their customers’ diverse service requirements at less cost through a shared service desk staffing model.
CA NSD 7 also provides highly configurable ITIL-based “action driven” workflows that accelerate time-to-benefit, reduce ownership costs and make it easy for IT organizations to add and modify workflows as necessary to continuously improve operations.
The integration of CA NSD 7 with CA Nimsoft Monitor further streamlines service management by linking alerts from the IT environment to service tickets and making critical infrastructure data immediately available to service desk staff in context.
CA NSD 7 lets customers choose monthly subscriptions based on named- or concurrent-user licensing. The SaaS model also gives customers immediate access to any and all upgraded functionality as soon as it becomes available. CA NSD 7 is available directly from CA Technologies and from the company’s global partner network.
CA Technologies is also addressing the needs of customers looking to evolve their service management capabilities via traditional on-premise solutions with the latest release of CA Service Catalog. CA Service Catalog 12.8 empowers organizations to manage the delivery of services where, when, and how they are needed. It features a streamlined request and fulfillment UI that elevates the user experience and extends support for portal environments such as Liferay and Microsoft SharePoint.
