CMG Webcast – A Revolutionary Approach To Capacity Planning

About the Session – It is no longer sufficient to utilize yesterday’s outmoded approach when planning for tomorrow’s applications, systems and facilities infrastructures. We need to revolutionize the practice of capacity planning. This webinar will examine the current scope and focus of capacity planning and propose an innovative methodology to evaluate, predict and plan for the all-inclusive Digital Infrastructure.

About CMG – 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.
