Congratulations AG - Vivit Worldwide 2018 EMEA Partner of the Year!
Jonathon Wright, Advocacy Chair on the Vivit Board of Directors, presented Jan-Erik Senf, Key Account Manager, with the Vivit Worldwide EMEA Partner of the Year award for 2018.

Vivit has a history of rewarding companies and people who are great supporters of the community and who contribute extensively by organizing activities, sharing their knowledge with fellow members, and encouraging participation by other parties.

We had the privilege to announce the 2018 Vivit EMEA Partner of the Year award at the Open Horizons Summit in Berlin. This Micro Focus channel partner event allowed Vivit to present this award in person to AG at the awards ceremony. Vivit recognizes the efforts of a Micro Focus Legacy Partner who has gone above and beyond to grow and build the Vivit community in EMEA. AG is a leading expert in IT Quality Management and Cloud Automation. As a Micro Focus platinum partner, their policy is to support its customers from the very beginning of their IT optimization processes. AG concentrates mainly on German speaking countries and works with both large and small companies. With over 75 flexible and motivated employees, they guarantee innovative and highly sophisticated quality management at the respective project sites. "WE MAKE IT WORK" is more than just their slogan, it is their guiding principle. AG has encouraged their employees to volunteer their time in several ways:

  • Speak and Moderate at both local and virtual meetings
  • Serve as a Vivit Leader for Special Interest Groups and Local User Groups
  • Act as a Vivit representative at Micro Focus events, summits, forums, and conferences.

One example of a dedicated volunteer from is Carsten Neise, Managing IT Consultant. AG has supported Carsten in serving as a Vivit Leader since September 2015. Carsten worked with other leaders in Germany to organize local and virtual events, and he started with events for the Germany Testing, Quality and Application Lifecycle Management (TQA) Group and helped organize meetings in Munich, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Berlin. Working with Micro Focus Senior Principal Business Consultant, Dirk Hedderich and others, Carsten continues to share the latest information about Micro Focus tools with Vivit members in Germany.

Since one of Carsten’s focuses is on Performance Testing, he noticed there was a demand for sharing knowledge about this topic and worked with Vivit to start a new local Special Interest Group for Performance Engineering in 2017. This TQA SIG recently held a meeting at the AG office in Berlin. Thank you to CTO, Thomas Jähnig, who also dedicates his time and office space for Carsten to organize these Vivit meetings. AG has allowed employees to volunteer at the Vivit booth at the Discover conference in London, serve as moderators on several webinars, contribute as speakers on Vivit Quarterly Leader Meetings, and write blogs for the Vivit website about the events that they represent and attend. also extended the community in Germany and honors special thanks to Dr. Andreas Birk (SWPM), who is always managing the overall Vivit affairs in an excellent manner. Secondly, wants to thank Mr. Michael Thiere (SQS) with whom they are collaborating in the Vivit group north/east. Special mention also goes to Marcus Seyfert (Sogeti) who is helping in the Performance Engineering group. Last but not least, says thank you to Mrs. Annemarie Stuiver of Vivit because she is always a very good voice and helps direct efforts with the Vivit staff. All these factors result in setting up a very connected community in Germany.
