By bringing people together, connecting and inspiring them, we can create the potential for positive change.


This event addresses CM as practiced by various organizations, in various environments, and in various life cycle phases. Hear first hand from the thought leaders who lead and made 649C, The Configuration Management Standard, possible: our instructors A. Larry Gurule, Rick St. Germain and Michael Treadwell. CM Trends does not focus on a single CM methodology, you will also learn about the latest internationally accepted and utilized “Best Practices,” related standards, and much more.

This will be your opportunity to meet and network with delegates from across the globe in similar fields and interests.
