TURNERSVILLE, N.J., Aug. 3, 2006 -- The IT professionals responsible for planning, measuring and managing the world's largest IT infrastructures will be devoting more than a day of their annual conference to the performance management and capacity planning implications of implementing Service Oriented Architectures. The 2006 Computer Measurement Group (CMG) conference takes place in Reno, Nevada from December 3rd through December 8th.

On Monday afternoon, December 4th, Rob Levy, CTO & EVP, BEA Systems, will deliver the conference keynote address: "SOA: A Day in the Era of Composite Applications -- How Do You Manage and Provide Capacity Planning for Composite Applications?"

Tuesday, December 5th has been declared "SOA Day." Speakers representing market leaders will present various SOA-related topics. Gene Leganza of Forrester Research will kick-off "SOA Day" at Tuesday morning's plenary session: "How Will SOA Impact IT Practices?"

Throughout the remainder of Tuesday, speakers and panelists from organizations with varied experiences in SOA implementations will provide critical success factors as well as the "wrinkles and warts" that were learning experiences along the way. Sessions will range from those that are basic and definitional to presentations outlining advanced implementation approaches, techniques and experiences.

One of the featured panels on Tuesday includes a powerhouse of SOA experts from Government, Banking/Finance, Health Care/Medical & Telecommunication industry sectors who will share experiences on "Lessons Learned from Real World SOA." Another panel, consisting of founding members of the SOA Alliance, will also discuss the real world challenges they face every day, along with some potential solutions. Both panel sessions are sure to be lively, insightful discussions.

"Service-Oriented Architectures enable a new level of agility for the enterprise, but the architectural patterns and best practices are just emerging. CMG attendees are well aware of the relationship between the architecture and guaranteeing consistent, high-quality service to end users and customers. We will provide world-class leaders in the field right along side experiential presentations by practitioners who actually make this a reality in their own companies," said Dr. Michael Salsburg, Program Chair for CMG 2006.

"CMG continues to innovate and evolve to meet the ever changing needs of our members and attendees. For over 30 years, CMG has met the challenge to provide the performance and capacity knowledge required to support the newest technologies and developments within the industry," said Shana Bereznay, General Chair for CMG 2006.

The Computer Measurement Group ( is a not-for-profit, worldwide organization of data processing professionals dedicated to the measurement and management of technology. Originally focused on performance evaluation and capacity planning for mainframe computers, CMG has evolved to be "platform-agnostic" (all computing, storage and network platforms/topologies) in addition to being one of the first and few remaining "vendor-neutral" user groups within the technology community.
