The show goes on! Introducing the new HP Propel 2.01!


Vesna Soraic
HP Propel
Product Marketing Manager


We are living in a digital era, where software applications are starting to rule our businesses—and our lives. We as customers, citizens and employees want applications that aren’t just functional, secure and efficient but are also increasingly engaging and entertaining. We have a need to be delighted and our expectations are always increasing. These degrees of entertainment and delight are relative and subjective, and for us in the software industry and IT this is job security. We will need to constantly create new gigs and make sure that "the show must go on” to keep users happy.

But what does this mean in practice? Software application architecture is receiving wide-population recognition and awareness like never before. This awareness means that it is at least equally (or in reality much more) important as the application design. Today’s modern applications are very composite and granular - they are based on micro-services in contrast to monolithic applications which every IT department still owns from the past.

Membership Committee Focuses on Future Growth


Mark Ford

Vivit Membership Chairperson
Board of Directors


Hello everyone- I’m Mark Ford, Board Director - Membership Chairperson at Vivit Worldwide. Nine years ago, I joined the Mercury User’s Group when I became a Mercury Quality Center administrator. Shortly thereafter, HP acquired Mercury and our user group joined Vivit. I’ve served as a Vivit Chapter Leader in two different chapters over the past five years, both in Iowa (briefly) and now in the Carolinas. I’m still working in the Financial Services industry as an HP ALM admin, and I’m excited to now be involved with Vivit in this new position. As Membership Chairperson, my main focus is on three areas: who are our Vivit Members, what do they need from Vivit, and how can Vivit best serve those needs?
