TURNERSVILLE, N.J., May 31, /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The IT professionals responsible for planning, measuring and managing the world's largest IT infrastructures are preparing for the 33rd Computer Measurement Group 2007 annual conference taking place from December 2 – 7 in San Diego, CA at the Manchester Grand Hyatt.
CMG2007 includes content for every level — from industry veterans to new practitioners. There is a full-day of pre-conference workshops as well as CMG-T, which is training given by industry experts for "rookies" who need to quickly "ramp up" in their knowledge of core competencies.
"This year's conference should be particularly important to computing professionals who need to stay abreast of the latest technologies and methodologies that focus on cost reduction via server virtualization and consolidation," said Kathy Steffens, the Program Chairman for CMG2007. "For the last several years, CMG has been one of the few sources for objective analysis of the technologies that enable consolidation efforts and improve the 'bottom line.' This year, we expect to provide even more technical insights, training, and real-world experiences."
The conference will cover topics including: load and stress testing, benchmarking, performance optimization, software performance engineering, resource management, capacity analysis, simulation and analytic modeling, and cost management. This year, there will be a special emphasis on Virtualization, System Oriented Architecture (SOA), IT Service Management and IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), and the technology implications of globalization.
This year's keynote speaker will be Sandy Carter, Vice President, SOA & WebSphere Marketing, Strategy and Channels at IBM. She will present "The New Language of Business: SOA & Web 2.0" and how these IT approaches can address real business problems.
CMG members are experts at evaluating and deploying computer systems optimized for cost and quality of service. Members include professional performance management personnel from the largest corporations around the world. CMG helps its members keep ahead of emerging technologies and meet the challenges of new computing architectures and directions.
The Computer Measurement Group (http://www.cmg.org) is a not for profit, worldwide organization of data processing professionals committed to the measurement and management of computer systems.
