Dear VIVIT member,

There are a lot of changes in the air in IT:

1. IT is quickly evolving – New products and concepts at HP Discover, Dev-Ops, Cloud, Mobility, etc.

2. New VIVIT NorCal/Silicon Valley Chapter – Logical combination of two groups that share the same peninsula, mindsets and companies

Please join us at the Santa Clara Marriott Thursday, June 28th. We have several great presentations to discuss on how to achieve and support greater agility in IT. This week HP will be driving new "DevOps” concepts at HP Discover, so our meeting's timely focus will be to discuss what we heard and delve in deeper for those attending Discover, and provide those of you not attending this week a chance to hear these changes and ask questions. We will be providing dinner and beer and wine in addition to a meet and greet for the members of our recently merged chapters.

Our goal is to have meetings every other month. This is your HP Software User Group, and our goal is to get together to exchange information, discuss challenges, and share solutions around the HP Software Solutions and IT. We ask for your feedback today for the upcoming August, October and December 2012 meetings, in the following areas:

1. Topics for future presentations: Please indicate whether you or your team wishes to present or if you wish for us to find a thought leader from HP or the extended community on: 

    a. Problems, IT challenges, unique business requirements

    b. Discussing changes to IT or HP Software Tools

    c. Sharing new exciting technologies, best practices, new tools or 3rd party integrations to the HP Software tools

2. Meeting Hosting: Can you host one of the upcoming meetings at your company? The best room is an auditorium or training room with a projector and seats for the members, with or without tables, but not training rooms with computer stations.

3. Feedback : What can we do to make our member group stronger? How can VIVIT provide more value to you? What can our members do to help improve VIVIT meetings and our community?

I look forward to working together with you, as a new VIVIT Chapter Member and Leader,as the NorCal area has the most to offer and receive from a strong VIVIT community.
