Due to the developments in the application management domain a new version of ASL (ASL 2) was published in 2009 to ensure the framework could keep on providing the answers to both present and future questions.

In this white paper, Mark Smalley, shows that: 'People in the IT Service Management domain currently seem very interested in, but confused about, the concept of service catalogue. As a result, the services offered to the customer are often not formulated in terms that the business understands. These poorly described IT services lead to inequality – or asymmetry – in the relationship between business and IT, leading in turn to mistrust and ill-informed decision-making. This paper offers guidance how to structure a service catalogue so that they are more easily understood by the business.'

Some of the problems after sourcing IT are caused by overestimating the ability to formalise the division of labour between the various internal and external parties involved. In this white paper Mark Smalley explores this domain and emphasizes the need for mutually closely collaborating sourcing partners to effectively deal with the inevitable gray areas in your information system landscape. An effective sourcing strategy is ‘loosely coupled if possible, and closely collaborative if not’.

In this White Paper, Mark Smalley argues that Application management was initially pretty operational and reactive. About fifteen years ago, in response to the higher service levels that the user organisations required, we started investing in improvement of the maturity of application management processes. We are currently slowly moving towards a new phase in which we’re looking for an adequate response to the increasing complexity of a new generation of ‘virtual’ applications based Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). The areas that require extra attention are architecture, ownership (governance) and an ‘adhocratic’ kind of organization.
