 January 1996, we started an HP OpenView user group in Norway, and called it the Norwegian OpenView User Group (NoVUG), and it became an associate of OpenView Forum International. The name was changed to Norwegian Vivit User Group (retaining the abbreviated name!) when OVFI changed to Vivit Worldwide. NoVUG was quite active the first almost 20 years, but has been only partially active since then. We believe that now, with the 25th anniversary , is a good time to revive this great user community and to actively and regularly encourage the regular exchange of technical experts, customers, partners, tech-evangelists and vendors again.

We believe that now, with the 25th anniversary, is a good time to revive this great user community and to actively and regularly promote the regular exchange of subject matter experts, customers, partners, tech evangelists and manufacturers again.

Therefore, we would like to invite you to our anniversary user meeting on January 19, 2021. Even though the meeting will take place as a virtual meeting from 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. due to the Corona situation, we will most certainly find a way of celebrating the jubilee together in style with a glass of champagne. Let us surprise you.
