Vivit’s New Education Chair is Working for You

by Chris Trimper
Vivit Board Director
Education Chairperson

At our recent Board of Directors meeting in Chicago this past June, I was honored to be voted in as your Education Chair. Since then I have been working with my fellow board members on new ways to deliver valuable content to our Vivit community of over 41K members.

Recently, I have been involved in the closed beta and now the public beta for Storm Runner Functional. During this time, I had a chance to explore all the new features and work together with various Micro Focus R&D team members to better my understanding of the capabilities. All these team interactions gave me a great idea and a plan for a series of learning related content!

Goal 1: Leverage relationships with Micro Focus R&D Teams

I plan to work with various R&D and technical roles within Micro Focus to talk about trending activities, new product solutions, and upgrades. From our recent membership survey, we know that many of you are interested in the functionality of “new products.” This collaboration with myself and Micro Focus will provide an avenue to not only see new features but have beta testers brought in for discussion and allow open questions from Vivit members to the R&D team. My hope is that leveraging this sort of relationship can help all of us as members to better plan adoption of new technologies from Micro Focus.
