For the inventory and documentation part, Netdot is pretty cool:

There's a few things missing for datacenter use (VLANs and address ranges 
can only exist once), but I guess that's not particularly relevant for 
ISP work. Nevertheless, the network inventory functions are immensely 
useful for us - we don't even use most of the advanced functions.

As for ticketing, around here quite a few people are using OTRS 
( - but I have no experience with that myself. 
Something like Redmine should be more leightweight and will probably 
do the job too...
