That is very sad #CMGnews - www.CMG.org member Dr. Bernard Domanski passed away. I never forget his presentations at CMG conferences! One of them inspired me to be a blogger and I am still trying (www.Trub.in) and will be remembering him at any my future posting there!

Looking back to 2019 - CMG'19 relevant presentation #4: Catching Anomaly And Normality In Cloud By Neural Net And Entropy Calculation

It is really relevant as it is my presentation....

IMPACT 2019: Catching Anomaly And Normality In Cloud By Neural Net And Entropy Calculation – Igor Trubin, Capital One Bank




Looking back to 2019 - CMG'19 relevant presentation #3: Capacity Planning Under Cloudy Skies

It is relevant as the keynote speaker of this presentation is my product owner!

IMPACT 2019: Capacity Planning Under Cloudy Skies – Brian Wong, Capital One

Much of the world is moving to cloud, and many significant parts of IT are changing at the same time. Capacity planning is far from obsolete, but practicing it in a rapidly changing environment will be very different from practicing it in the past. This session shows where the field is going.

Looking back to 2019 - CMG'19 relevant presentation #2: The Motivations And Benefits Of Building A Home-Grown Capacity Management System

That is relevant Because all my Capacity Management Career i deal with home-grown capacity management systems (and created one of them myself - SETDS/SonR)
So the title:

IMPACT 2019: The Motivations And Benefits Of Building A Home-Grown Capacity Management System – Len Wyatt, Blackbaud, Inc.

There are commercial capacity management tools out there, so why would anyone build their own? For Blackbaud, there were both technical and organizational reasons. There have been some surprising benefits. This talk surveys the motivations, the architecture, the benefits and the tradeoffs of creating your own Capacity Management Data Warehouse (CMDW).
The primary uses for CMDW include monitoring current systems for capacity concerns, trying to anticipate upcoming needs, forecasting resource needs as we move from physical servers to a virtualized data center and to a cloud-based infrastructure, and troubleshooting issues based on data that was not visible before. On the monitoring front, as the number of systems monitored has grown, we have moved toward a process of looking for statistical anomalies in the data and having people investigate data that was first uncovered by the statistics. Forecasting is still a spreadsheet-driven process, but the CMDW provides data that lets us project from current environments to future configurations.
This talk will outline the variety of data sources that feed into CMDW, dive into how a traditional data warehouse architecture using a relational database has worked as the core mechanism, and where we extended the concepts of a relational warehouse for synchronizing disparate data sources and for doing statistical analysis. A look at the varied uses of CMDW comes next: both the things we planned to do and the things that popped up once people saw the ability to collect and analyze data in new ways. At the end, we’ll “fess up” to some of the issues that came up as well.

Looking back to 2019 - CMG'19 relevant presentation #1: The Fine Art Of Combining Capacity Management With Machine Learning

IMPACT 2019: The Fine Art Of Combining Capacity Management With Machine Learning – Charles W. Johnson Jr., Syncsort, Inc.



Capacity Management within the enterprise continues to evolve. In the past we were focused on the hardware; now we are focused on services. With that in mind, the amount of data available has increased significantly and has become difficult for the Capacity Manager to sort through.
To be successful with this discipline going forward, we need the machines to do more of the heavy lifting. This includes automatically creating reports, calling out anomalies, and producing forecasts. All this still requires the human computer to perform the sanity checks on the anomalies and forecasts. The intuition of the human computer is imperative to our success. The bonding of the human computer and physical machine has become critical in performing Capacity Management.
In this presentation, we will discuss Capacity Management with and without Machine Learning, provide examples of what Machine Learning can provide in the process, and demonstrate outcomes using the strengths of both to make Capacity Management a successful component within your organization.
