Wrap up of HP Discover!
"Experience the Magic of Vivit by connecting with other members, special interest groups, local user groups, Vivit staff and the elected board of directors” was the overall theme for Vivit at HP Discover in Las Vegas, June 10 – 12, 2014. If you didn’t attend the conference, we hope you will consider the same opportunities to experience the magic with Vivit now.
Vivit has over 22,000 members worldwide and is proud to have some of the IT industry top thought-leaders as members and volunteers. These individuals volunteer their time to lead local user groups (LUG) and worldwide virtual special interest groups (SIG). Leaders from around the world gathered at HP Discover to represent their groups and discuss the latest HP Software developments and game changing technologies.
Experience the Magic of Local User Groups and Special Interest Groups
There are 76 LUGs in 26 countries and 19 virtual SIGs. Each LUG and SIG has its own focus and personality. Members of LUGs meet face to face to share best practices, tips, and tricks. Members of SIGs meet online and can participate in blogs and webinars. Locate your LUG and SIGs of choice and select the "Join group” icon which will appear at the top of the group page if you aren’t already linked. Don’t see a local user group near you or a particular SIG? Contact us to start and lead a new group.

Experience the Magic with other Vivit Members
Vivit is the longest-standing independent, worldwide HP Software user community providing an infrastructure of support for members through advocacy, community and education. We're your only source of information on HP Software that is completely unbiased, uncensored, and field-tested. We have worked hard to build a community platform where relevant conversations happen. Our booth at HP Discover provided many opportunities for individuals to connect and interact with each other. Over the past five years, Vivit has successfully changed, grown, and adapted to align with the new style of IT. Many conversations took place during HP Discover, both members and non-members had the opportunity to discuss and learn more about Vivit, plus individuals had the opportunity to play some foosball and win some great prizes.

Experience the Magic of Vivit’s Board of Directors and Staff
Nine outstanding members and thought leaders serve on the Board of Directors. They met face to face for two days prior to HP Discover to discuss the state of the user community and programs to serve members going forward. Many of the dedicated staff attended HP Discover as well. If you didn’t get a chance to meet them in person, feel free to contact them anytime.
We hope to see as many members as possible at future events. Mark your calendars for HP Discover in Barcelona, December 2 – 4, 2014. We are already working on our community program. It is our mission to help fellow members tap into the wealth of collective knowledge in Vivit, the trusted, unbiased, and field-tested HP Software user community.
