Get linked at HP Discover

Posted By Susan Russel, Wednesday, May 29, 2013
Updated: Tuesday, June 4, 2013

When Vivit began planning for HP Discover, members agreed that one of the most important functions of Vivit is to link members to each other and to HP resources. From this input, we developed opportunities for members who are attending HP Discover in Las Vegas, June 11-13, to "get linked.” 


Start the conference early with Vivit Advanced Training. This is a great opportunity to get linked to practitioners who are in the field solving business problems with HP Software tools every day and to advance professionally.

In addition, HP ExpertOne is offering free training and certification exams. It’s a great way to save—for HP Partners that need to meet compliance requirements, and for individuals looking to extend their technical credentials.
