The organisers of this year's CMDB and CMS conference - the BCS's Configuration Management Specialist Group and IT Service Management Forum (itSMF) - are looking for presentations by experts in this field as well as suppliers and practitioners. The conference, entitled the Powerhouse of Service Management, is jointly run by the BCS and the itSMF, and will be held 8 July and 9 July at Olympia in London.
The conference will examine how successful organisations are implementing their configuration management databases and configuration management systems (CMDB/CMS) and will cover the benefits that can be achieved using these systems. The conference will bring managers and practitioners working across the service life-cycle together in an open forum.
The event aims to encourage the sharing and cross-fertilisation of ideas between practitioners, suppliers and users of CMDB/CMS systems and tools.
The conference programme will consist of plenary, parallel and workshop sessions, interactive industry feedback sessions, panel discussions, supplier displays, exhibits, demonstrations, and other related gatherings. The conference schedule will provide time for relaxed social and professional interaction.
Submissions should be relevant to the conference themes. The BCS would particularly like to hear from potential speakers sharing their own experiences.
