Providing Rapid Time-to-Value for Service Catalog Projects

New Quick Start Program Combines Workshop, Consulting, and Trial Usage of
newScale PortfolioCenterT for a Fraction of the Typical Cost

Dallas, TX, Sept. 21, 2009 – Third Sky, Inc., the leading full service IT
Service Management (ITSM) solutions provider, and newScaleR Inc., the market
leader in IT Service Catalog and Service Portfolio Management software
solutions, announced today the availability of their new joint Service
Catalog Quick Start program at the itSMF USA
Fusion 2009 conference in Dallas, Texas. This new program combines Third
Sky’s acclaimed Service Catalog workshop and consulting assistance with
trial usage of the
PortfolioCenter Workgroup Edition, enabling organizations to quickly define,
publish and review their evolving Service Catalog.

“Our customers already receive tremendous value from our focus on
accelerating their Service Catalog development projects. This program
combines Third Sky’s Service Catalog templates and expertise with newScale’s
enterprise-class software. Customers will be guided through the modeling
and definition of their services, and then provided with the ability to
professionally publish and review their completed Service Catalog – all for
a price that any project team can afford,” said Michael Robinson, Vice
President of Professional Services for Third Sky.

The customer’s trial instance of newScale PortfolioCenter Workgroup Edition
is provided in a hosted, cloud-based model. “We’re excited to offer Third
Sky customers the opportunity to leverage the newScale PortfolioCenter
Workgroup Edition in a hosted model,” said Ken Remington, Vice President of
Alliance and Channel sales for newScale. “This gives them the ability to
get up and running with a published Service Catalog quickly and easily,
without needing to deploy the software on-premises.”

Considerable Service Catalog intellectual property is provided by both Third
Sky and newScale as part of this program. “This joint offering combines the
strengths of both companies to deliver rapid time-to-value for our
customers’ Service Catalog projects,” remarked Ken. “The first questions in
any Service Catalog initiative are typically ‘How do I define my services?’
and ‘How can we effectively communicate and market what it is that IT does?’
With Third Sky’s ITSM expertise and our market-leading Service Catalog
software, this program provides the answer.”
