HP Software EMEA Customer Forums

Posted By Richard Bishop, Thursday, April 11, 2013

The IT environment that we're working in is radically different from that of 10 or 20 years ago. "Game-changing” trends such as cloud or hybrid-cloud computing, agile software development methods, DevOps integrations and the proliferation of mobile devices are making fundamental changes to the way that we live and work.

HP has arranged two customer forums in Brussels that will help you to get to grips with these new trends and give you the opportunity to share your own experiences with your peers from leading EMEA companies and HP product managers. These events are free for HP Customers and Channel Partners.


16th – 17th April 2013 
HP Software Customer Forum EMEA – Service and Portfolio Management
Over two days this event will cover the key aspects of service and portfolio management including asset, configuration and demand management as well as PPM and HP Service Anywhere. Customer speakers include Barclays, SAP, SPAR, Continental, Turkcell and others.

18th – 19th April 2013

HP Software Customer Forum EMEA – Application Lifecycle Management
The ALM forum includes hot topics from the world of testing such as TMMi, network virtualisation, agile development and testing and security. Speakers come from companies including Steria, Atos and Iovio and there will be breakout sessions covering test automation, performance testing, agile ALM and mobile application delivery.

25th April 2013
HP ALM 360°
As well as the customer forums, HP's ALM roadshow is in Brussels on 25th April. I attended the UK ALM roadshow in Leeds and found it extremely informative. As well as providing roadmap information and customer "best-practice sessions”, it was a great opportunity to share experiences with other HP software users.


At the Brussels event you'll hear how to accelerate application delvery with ALM as well as security and QA case studies. The afternoon session will consist of three separate tracks, allowing you to choose sessions that suit your own needs or interests. Sessions include QA and mobile application testing, application security, functional testing, DevOps and continuous delivery.

Vivit leaders will be at these events too, so as well as the opportunity to mix with other attendees, make sure that you get in touch with them as well. Why not take the opportunity to have a small get-together with other Vivit members and make the most of your trip to Brussels.

Posted By Susan Russel, Tuesday, October 23, 2012
Updated: Monday, November 5, 2012


Are you looking to dive deeper into Test Automation or ITIL? Vivit is hosting Advanced Training on 3 December, 13:00-17:00 in Frankfurt, Germany in conjunction with HP Discover. If you are unable to attend the conference, you can still attend our training. And the best part – it’s free thanks to our sponsor, Lemontree Enterprise Solutions, experts in solutions that simplify implementation of test automation.

   

Both classes are 4-hour implementation and integration tutorials. They start where most others leave off and provide real-world implementation experiences and examples from practitioners who are in the field solving business problems with HP tools every day.


The first course, Make Your Test Automation Project a Success Story, will be instructed by Magnus Nilsson, Senior Consultant, Lemontree Enterprise Solutions AB. Have you ever faced the inevitable reality of a project that is exceeding its budget? Have you ever wished all tests needed were automated to gain time? Well, here is the road map for you to succeed the test automation project. In this training session, Magnus will address success factors for test automation projects on a conceptual level including:

  • the test automation project   
  • company test strategy
  • building a strong business case

Hands-on level:

  • a practical approach with examples on how to establish a framework and organize your test automation code  

The course is suitable for Test Managers, Quality Managers, Automation Engineers, and Tool Specialists. The course level is basic to intermediate.

The second course, ITIL® and Beyond: The Success for Reliable Service Delivery, will be instructed by Mathias Traugott, Ceo & Principal Consultant, IT Unlimited Schweiz AG. Based on ITIL’s basic principal, "a service is a means of delivering value,” you will learn and understand the meaning and value of true service delivery.

  • Service Delivery: Discover the 4 key processes divided into drivers and delivery 
  • Different "views of a service”: Understand the different point of views of a service and learn about the common goals and various focuses: ITIL®, COBIT, ITSCMM, Service Customer, Service Consumer, Service Provider and Service Supplier
  • Contracts (SLA), Service, System: Manage a clear demarcation of these three different worlds and understand how they fit together into one world
  • Service Specification: Learn  a methodology on how to specify a service holistically with only 12 attributes, how they fit with utility and warranty, and how to integrate in an easy way in the Service Catalogue
  • Finally, touch on the topic of service pricing (charge backs) and discuss different charging methodologies and opportunities for your organization.

This course is suitable for Senior Managers, Business Managers, Service Managers, Business Analysts, Consultants, Project Managers, Service Advocates.

Registration in advance is required. Space is limited. If you are attending HP Discover, simply add the course when you register for HP Discover, or login to your existing HP Discover registration account and add the course to your conference pass options at any time. One class is included with your HP Discover conference pass.
