Ohio Valley CMG Fall 2013 Meeting

September 23, 2013

Join us on October 25th, 2013 for a great day of non-mainframe related performance topics! Microsoft Premier Field Engineer Bruce Adamczak will be spend a full two hours discussing Windows Key Performance Indicators with us. 2012 Mullen Award Winner Nicole Arksey will team up with Scott Chapman to present their 2012 Best Paper, “Better Information through Better Data Visualization”. Our sponsor Riverbed Technology will introduce us to their product line and also present “Holistic Application Performance Monitoring”, which will explore the collection and correlation of user transactions to monitor, alert, and identify performance issues.

While we aren’t doing a PARS this time, we’ve built plenty of time into the schedule for networking with your peers over breakfast, lunch, and breaks. If you absolutely can’t make it in person, we are planning on having a live webcast available as well.

If you haven’t come to OHVCMG in a while because you felt we were doing too many mainframe-oriented topics, this is your opportunity to come out and let us know you want to see more such topics in the future!

While the registration fee for this event is a very budget-friendly $0, we do ask that you register by October 18th so that we can plan accordingly.

Registration is now closed!
