AWS Service Catalog
AWS Service Catalog allows organizations to create and manage catalogs of IT services that are approved for use on AWS. These IT services can include everything from virtual machine images, servers, software, and databases to complete multi-tier application architectures. AWS Service Catalog allows you to centrally manage deployed IT services and your applications, resources, and metadata. This helps you achieve consistent governance and meet your compliance requirements, while enabling users to quickly deploy only the approved IT services they need. With AWS Service Catalog AppRegistry, organizations can understand the application context of their AWS resources. You can define and manage your applications and their metadata, to keep track of cost, performance, security, compliance and operational status at the application level.
Ensure compliance with corporate standards
AWS Service Catalog provides a single location where organizations can centrally manage catalogs of IT services. With AWS Service Catalog you can control which IT services and versions are available, what is configured in each of the available service, and who gets permission access by individual, group, department or cost center.
Help employees quickly find and deploy approved IT services
With AWS Service Catalog, you define your own catalog of AWS services and AWS Marketplace software, and make them available for your organization. Then, end users can quickly discover and deploy IT services using a self-service portal.
Centrally manage IT service lifecycle
AWS Service Catalog enables you to add new versions of IT services, and end users are notified so they can keep abreast of the latest updates. With AWS Service Catalog you can control the use of IT services by specifying constraints, such as limiting the AWS regions in which a product can be launched.
