CMSG Conference - The CMDB and CMS - the Powerhouse Of Service Management

Date: 8 & 9 July 2008

Venue: Olympia Conference Centre, London.

The main Conference objectives are to gain knowledge on the way successful organisations are implementing their CMDB/CMS (Configuration Management Database / Configuration Management System) and understand the benefits that can be achieved. The Conference will bring managers and practitioners working across the service lifecycle (which incorporates the application lifecycle) together in an open forum.

We are looking for presentations by world leaders in this field, vendors and practitioners to encourage the sharing and cross fertilisation of ideas between practitioners, vendors and users of the CMDB/CMS solutions and tools.

The Conference will contain interactive workshops using decision support tools that guarantee dynamic interaction, rich brainstorming and better discussion between users, practitioners and the vendor community. The knowledge gained from the workshops will create a shared understanding of today’s challenges, industry and vendor strategies to cope with these challenges and future needs.


For users and practitioners the Conference and workshops should provide a unique opportunity to get the inside track on how to approach your CMDB/CMS implementation and develop your existing solution.


The conference will focus on 4 main streams throughout the day.

  • Strategic - Global trends and the CMDB/CMS
  • Tactical - Configuration Management Implementation
  • Interactive - Strategic and Tactical
  • Open Source Solutions for Enterprise Configuration Management
