Vivit Deep Dive Sessions at Discover 2016 Las Vegas




Rocky Pisto

Vivit Engage Coordinator

Have you ever asked yourself, "how do I grow my career with HPE software” or "how do we know what HPE software solution is best for our organization?” Well, the Vivit Community is offering an opportunity to help answer both questions at Discover 2016 Las Vegas.

Real world experience has always been the best approach to learning, no matter what the solution. For the past 23 years, Vivit has been delivering real world experience and networking opportunities to HPE software end users and partners—the best and the brightest. We understand the services required to support our members’ needs to grow their career. Deep Dive sessions are one of those services.

Year after year, our community has asked for more in-depth software sessions at Discover to focus on specific knowledge about a solution, best practices, end user experiences, and how-to steps to build confidence that the solution will deliver as promised. Consider the Deep Dive Sessions as more of a consultative approach to understanding the validity of the solution.
