HP Discover Wrap Up

This year I was once again fortunate to attend the HP Discover conference in Las Vegas. As a Vivit Board member, I’m invited to these conferences for meetings with HP executives as well as meetings with the rest of the Vivit Board the two days immediately before each conference.

I was pleased to be able to attend this year after successful re-election to the Board and I was delighted when during the pre-conference meeting, my fellow board members voted to elect me president of the Vivit Board.

Vivit
Each HP Discover conference is a great opportunity for all Vivit members, not just Board members or Local User Group leaders, to meet HP executives and product managers. It can often be difficult to find the right person to talk to in an organization as large as HP, but at conferences such as this, you’re never far from the person with the answer to your question, whether this is an HP specialist or fellow conference attendee.

Vivit Engage Coordinator

As an HP Partner for 28 years, PCI learned a long time ago that knowing the pulse of the community was very important. We were able to get a sense of it by becoming members of Vivit Worldwide, the HP Software user group.

Vivit is a global organization focused on the end user experience and has been around for over 20 years. Vivit helps HP Software customers keep products from becoming shelf ware and share best practices with peers in Local User Group events or in virtual events from a Special Interest Group.

As our customer base grew, many asked us how they could learn from other companies using HP Software and share best practices. Like most partners, we listened to our customers and became Vivit Local User Group leaders in our region. PCI has supported local events for 15 years, with meetings at customer locations sponsored by HP Software or partners. Customers really appreciate these events because they can network with other companies in the region and connect with HP Software technical resources and partners in the ecosystem.
