Video Interview: Vivit is Changing

Jason Kennedy, Martijn Stuiver and Richard Bishop from the Board of Directors were asked to discuss how Vivit is changing from a primarily US-centric, practitioner-focused user community to one which helps support our members as the IT world changes around them. The interview covers the changing demographics of the Vivit user community, how we plan to alter our content to suit our membership, our development of new social media channels, the growth of our membership as well as the development of new special interest groups such as "Cloud Builders” and "Security” alongside our existing special interest groups.
