This is the twelfth conference run by BCS CMSG.

This is the premier UK event on Change, Release, Configuration and Software Asset Management for ITIL and Service Management and throughout the application lifecycle - the BCS CMSG has a successful track record of previous events.

The main Conference objectives are to share experiences in how Configuration Management supports and enables Change Management in software development and ITIL Service Management. Software Asset Management (SAM) and licensing are critical to today's organizations and the Conference will detail new approaches and strategies to aid today's practitioners.

Best practices in adopting an integrated approach, and communicating and selling this to the rest of the organisation are essential elements.

The Conference will bring together managers and practitioners working across the service lifecycle (which incorporates the application lifecycle) together in an open forum.


The Conference and workshops will provide a unique opportunity to learn from practical experience and how to better communicate the benefits and value of managing your CCRM and SAM processes.

It is an excellent networking opportunity and includes lunch and evening buffet with drinks!


The conference will focus on 3 main streams throughout the day, with an exciting keynote to bind them together:
