What we like the most about CMG conferences is the unique opportunity to get in touch with top capacity and performance professionals, working on different industries and organizations around the globe. It is a pleasure and a privilege to sit together and share experiences and ideas about how to approach actual performance and capacity planning problems! Plus, it is also a great occasion for networking with our customers and prospects, getting to know each other in person and spending some relaxing time outside of the conference hotel.As Moviri, we have a long tradition of attending CMG conferences to share our best practices and constantly keeping up to date with the advancements of our capacity and performance field.
However, this year was special for us as we not only managed to get a paper approved for this year conference (second year in a row!), but our Stefano Doni had the honor of receiving the conference Best Paper award! We feel especially delighted for this important recognition and wish a huge thanks to all the referees that spent their time reviewing our paper and providing very useful feedback! We’re proud of this international award, we think it speaks for itself about the quality of what Moviri delivers.Plus, Renato Bonomini managed to deliver an outstanding vendor tool talk on “Business Capacity Modeling with BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization”, regarded as one of the most appreciated sessions by the attendees – great work Renato!
As usual, we also had a vendor booth which enabled us to present our offerings to US prospects and talk with customers & BMC partners. Thank you, Jon!Best Paper: Lessons from Capacity Planning a Java Enterprise Application: How to Keep Capacity Predictions on Target and Cut CPU Usage by 5x What is this work all about? Suppose you need to estimate if your user-facing service will be able to cope with the increased traffic of your most important business campaign. The stakes are high, you can’t be wrong or the business will be severely impacted. Chances are that your capacity predictions will fall short and the service will *crash* well before the estimated capacity will be reached. In this talk, we described actionable methodologies that we developed over years of capacity planning business critical Java enterprise applications. Overall, the session has been very well received, we got a lot of questions and interesting feedbacks – thank you! On Dec. 10th 2015, we held a #movinar, a webinar ran by Movirians, on the Best Paper topic. If you didn’t attend the conference and neither the webinar, here is the registration. Enjoy!
