Ramiro Carrazco, Enterprise Service Management Section Chief


The California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS), Information Technology Service Branch (ITSB) will host an Information Sharing Session specific to CalPERS successes with implementation of their newly developed and launched Information Technology (IT) Service Catalog.
Led by Ramiro Carrazco, Enterprise Service Management (ESM) Section Chief, the (IT) Service Catalog Information Sharing Session will cover discussion topics focused on:
  • Sponsorship and Organizational Engagement – Level of engagement and executive support required to drive organizational change.
  • Strategy – Organizational business drivers and objectives.
  • Scope and Approach – Project perimeters and overall process for defining, prioritizing, and marketing the value of IT services.
  • Lessons Learned – Shared experiences and observations from project team, involved stakeholders, and consulting partners.
  • Future State Opportunities – What’s next for CalPERS future state enhancements?


This achievement resulted in the development of a paper-based tool that:

  • Provides a complete set of IT services with multiple views (e.g. portfolio, business, and technical).
  • Sets clear expectations by communicating available IT services and enables informed decision-making on offerings that meet customers’ business needs.
  • Serves as one of the vehicles for continuously enhancing collaboration between IT and valued business partners.

Mr. Carrazco provides expert level knowledge and leadership to critical IT processes (IT Service Catalog Management, Change Management, Release and Deployment Management, and Service Asset and Configuration Management).
