Before installing System Center 2012 SP1 Service Manager in any environment there are many factors that you need to consider. Firstly, you need to understand your current IT environment. This includes how many users and computers are in the environment, how many Incidents and Change Requests are raised on a weekly/monthly basis and how many Analysts will be using the Service Manager Console. This information is critical in planning a successful deployment of Service Manager as it will be used to determine the hardware required for the various Service Manager components. Service Manager relies on Microsoft SQL Server to stores it’s operational and data warehouse databases so careful consideration should also be given to the configuration of SQL Server when deploying Service Manager. This includes the disk subsystem, memory and database collation. In this module you will learn the key component and architecture of Service Manager including the hardware and software requirements. You will also learn the security requirements and considerations that should be taken into account before, during and after deploying Service Manager. You will learn how to install the various components of Service Manager including where components can and cannot be shared on the same computer. Finally you will learn how to upgrade an existing System Center Service Manager 2010 environment to System Center 2012 Service Manager.

After installing Service Manager in your environment there will be number of base configuration tasks that should be performed in order to customize it to your environment and your needs. For example, you will need to create an Active Directory Connector that imports Users and Groups from the Active directory Domain. This will be required so that you can assign Work Items such as Incidents to users in the organization. It is also important to secure access to Service Manager so that only the relevant people can use its functions. This involves creating User Roles using User Role profiles so that when users open the Service Manager Console it is scoped based on their role. Notifications should be configured so that relevant staff can be notified when service levels are breached or when Incidents have been assigned to them. Finally, in order to integrate Service Manager with other System Center components such as Operations Manager and Orchestrator you will need to create Connectors for these components. The Connector will be used to import objects and use them as Configuration Items in Service Manager so that they can be associated with Work Items such as Incidents and Change Requests. In this module you will learn how to apply base configuration to Service Manager so that it is customized to your environment.

In this module you will learn how to differentiate an issue that occurs in the IT environment between an Incident and a Problem. You will also learn how to configure Incidents and Problems which includes creating Templates that can be used to auto-populate Incident forms.

When changes need to occur in the IT environment it is important that they are managed appropriately.

In this module you will learn how Service Manager manages changes in the IT environment by using Change Requests.

To provide effective Service Level Management a number of key activities must be undertaken. In addition to this, an ongoing activity to improve IT services is maintained. This not only helps ensure that service levels are being met but also ensures the business or businesses are satisfied with the level of service they are receiving.

As Service Manager grows with your environment you will quickly learn how important the Self-Service Portal is to providing your end-users with self-service capabilities. Whether providing services in a multi-tenant environment or services to your own organization’s end-users it is important that when users login to the Self-Service Portal that they can only see Service Offerings that they should have access to. Securing the Self-Service Portal is covered in Lesson 3 of Module 6. From an aesthetic perspective it is also important that when using the Self-Service Portal end-users are presented with an interface that is easy to navigate and is pleasing to the eye. This will also help ensure that end-users continue to use the Self-Service Portal instead of ringing or emailing the helpdesk with requests. In this module you will learn how to customize the Self-Service Portal so that it is more aligned to your business by embedding a company logo and modifying the theme in which the portal is displayed.

Reporting in any IT Service Management solution is a key function that provides a wealth of information. From analyzing Incident trends to reporting on Software Update compliance, data stored in the reporting data warehouse provides a historical view of how your business environment has performed. Service Manager provides a number of standard reports that become available once data from the Service Manager database has been extracted and prepared in the Service Manager Data Warehouse. To facilitate this, a number of Data Warehouse Jobs are used to extract, transform and load the data into the Data Warehouse so that it can be used in reports. It is important you understand how these data warehouse jobs operate including how to troubleshoot jobs that have failed. Similarly, there are a number of OLAP Cubes that can be used to perform advanced analytics on data that has been collected in the data warehouse. It is important you understand how these cubes are processed including how to analyze cube data in Microsoft Excel and Microsoft SharePoint. In this module you will learn how to run reports in Service Manager including how to manage and maintain the data warehouse jobs and cubes on which reports rely on.
