Ohio Valley CMG Fall 2019 Conference

September 26, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT



Ohio Valley CMG is planning our fall conference. This meeting will focus on IT areas other than mainframe. How do you manage a heterogenous IT? What are the issues with moving to the cloud? How are empathy and storytelling important to performance management? These and other topics are currently being planned. The full slate of presentations is still being worked on but we do have a date: September 26th, 2019. Admission is free but we do ask that you register so we can make sure we have sufficient food available. We’re still getting the details of all the presentations, but we’re sure it will be a great day!

BMC will be our sponsor and will have two presentations:

Buying and Managing Cloud Resources.  It’s Complicated. 

With the need for agility, scalability and reduced costs, companies are counting on cloud computing to help with their IT and digital transformation.  But without the right planning and tools, companies will not and are not achieving these goals.  According to Gartner, about 80 percent of the organizations adopting cloud are overspending.   Learn what makes managing cloud costs so challenging.

Controlling Cloud Costs. (Vendor Lunch Session)

Managing and especially saving on cloud costs requires visibility into daily spend – across all cloud service providers – and the ability to adopt new optimization techniques and plan for upcoming spend.  Learn about how BMC Helix Cloud Cost can help you optimize and control your cloud spend and operational budgets using algorithms which have been industry leading for a decade.

Jacob Hinton (Nationwide Insurance) Empathy and Storytelling’s Role in Performance Engineering

We have a tendency to geek out on the numbers, assume business partners know micro level details of their product, and assume others read our summaries of findings the way we do. Viewing and retelling the results from a different perspective can positively impact communication with product owners, developers, and customers.

John Flanders (DataDog) Observability and the 3 Pillars (Logging, Metrics, and Traces)

 A common mistake that engineers can make is to look at each of the pillars in isolation, and then simply evaluating and implementing individual solutions to address each pillar. Instead of looking for a holistic approach. We can discuss the challenges we’ve seen organizations go through when moving to the cloud.

Vamsi Kondapalli (Grange Insurance )  – Monitoring and Managing a Heterogenous IT Environment

Presenting  Enterprise Performance at Grange. This will be a high level of how Grange monitors and troubleshoots performance issues in the Distributed environment
