This February 21 through 23, Computer Measurement Group, known as CMG, will offer its 48th annual conference, IMPACT. For almost half of a decade, the non-profit organization has brought together enterprise technology professionals for sessions and networking with an emphasis on peer-to-peer learning and exchange.

But why peer-to-peer learning? It’s simple; that’s how CMG began. Creating a volunteer-led, vendor-neutral, INTERNATIONAL conference, before the time of email and internet is no small feat, but those are the key points of CMG origin story.

At IMPACT, I have learned new methods, kept up with best practices, and watched our industry evolve first-hand by listening to and interacting with some of the world’s leading IT experts in both vendor and customer spaces.
