The Computer Measurement Group is a not-for-profit, worldwide organization of IT professionals committed to sharing information and best practices focused on ensuring the efficiency and scalability of IT service delivery to the enterprise through measurement, quantitative analysis and forecasting.
CMG members are primarily concerned with performance evaluation of existing systems to maximize performance (eg. response time, throughput, etc.) and with capacity management where planned enhancements to existing systems or the design of new systems are evaluated to find the necessary resources required to provide adequate performance at a reasonable cost.
Balancing Management, People, and Technology
CMG is the most influential organization for the exchange of information among Information Technology (IT) professionals. Since 1974, CMG, Inc. has been a resource for Information Technology professionals in keeping on top of their field. Over the past decade, CMG has evolved as a leading organization for the exchange of information among enterprise computing professionals. All professionals charged with the measurement and management of computer systems and networks from a performance, capacity, and cost recovery standpoint benefit from membership in CMG.
CMG holds an international technical conference each year in the United States. The conference consists of a technical program addressing CPE (computer performance evaluation) issues across all popular computing platforms, from open systems to large commercial mainframes; the program contains sessions for "rookies" as well as in-depth technical presentations and user experiences. Papers are actively solicited and blind refereed; abstracts are due in early to mid Spring, with actual papers due in in late Spring to early Summer. A late-breaking paper process may be available for technologies recently announced or made generally available closer to the conference. The conference also has an extensive exhibitor program (trade show) with exhibitors displaying their products on the show floor and during exhibitor sessions.
CMG also has many regional groups in the United States, where each region holds smaller meetings several times per year. You can CMGski in the Rocky Mountain region in March, or visit New York, Kansas City, Connecticut, Boston, the South, DC, southern and northern California, Philadelphia, Florida, and other Regions! Our International affiliates CMG groups also have meetings throughout the year in places like London, Toronto, Germany, Belgium, Italy, France, Poland, Japan, Australia, Brazil and in Asian locations as well.
