Service Market provides a web based portal providing end users with a single point of contact for ordering services and an automated process for their delivery. It contains a service catalogue where you can register and publish available services. This makes it easy to place IT orders. All orders are sent to the manager or resource owner for approval. Once the order is approved, it is automatically executed in the IT system. After each order is executed, the end user is notified and a log of the action is created. This complete end to end workflow is automated and can be configured to be as simple or complex as required.
AppMarket is a limited version of Service Market that can only be used for end user self-service in regards to software distribution. If a software shop is the only thing needed, when looking at end user self-service, then this version is the way to go. Application Manager Standard is also included in Atea AppMarket. Depending on the underlying infrastructure (Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, Citrix, App-V etc.) these applications are delivered in different ways. If an application is not available in the current service catalogue, user can request to have new application packaged and made available in the portal. The request will go into the Application Manager after the approval to start packaging process is received. The new application will be available in the service catalogue and ready for installation when packaging is done.
