Overview

This course covers how a suite administrator will use Service Management Automation X (SMAX) to perform administrative tasks related to Service Management automation in the Suite Administration application. SMAX is a new suite designed to simplify the way businesses manage their IT services and assets.

You also configure suite level settings in Configurations, including security, email, and integration, view the operation history, and configure access control. From configuring, creating, importing, assigning, adding, managing, administering, and analyzing these suite administrative operations, you will learn how SMAX helps in this and future situations. You are new to SMAX.
