Service catalog allows our DevOps team to provide deployable objects with a base configuration as well as additional per deployment parameters. These deployed resources can also be updated through codepipeline as well.

The web console interface for service catalog is really bad,

When you need to provide a mechanism for teams to deploy resources, Service Catalog can provide a portal which allows customization while enforcing other parameters. All resources can also be updated through service catalog when a new version of a template is rolled out.

"Best catalog service"

What do you like best?

In many enterprises, the AWS environment is continually changing. There are always new subnets, security groups, and other infrastructure components that need to be created. The ability to allow end users, such as the operations team, to correctly provision AWS resources without having to know all of the detailed nuances of the AWS infrastructure becomes a challenge.

What do you dislike?

If you have a lot of development activity in your organization, it’s important to keep track of your non-production AWS accounts. If these accounts aren’t monitored closely, you might easily end up exceeding your budget.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

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, the configuration of the available services, and permission access by individual, group, department, or cost center.

What Enterprise IT Management Suites solution do you use?

"Service Catalog"

What do you like best?

Makes it really easy to distribute commonly used patterns and templates to all accountsn in use within an organisation.

What do you dislike?

Can be a little complex, but that comes down to how you use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For us, security is a concern, as cross-account access is required. Managing this can be done with IAM and good security practices.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a large bank, and have a 60+ service teams developing apps. Many are solving simillar, if not identical problems, so by providing standatd templates that help to solve 90% of the common problems, it saves those teams time and effort,, and increases standards use.

What do you like best?

This has really accelerated the security and automation apsect of deploying infrastructure/apps/services. The UI is fairly understandable and quick to learn.

What do you dislike?

I wish it was easier to import Terraform templates. I want to use something other than Cloudformation to build templates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

no

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
