What did you say?...Are Tivoli User Groups dead?...NO WAY!
In fact, with the 23,000+ members around the world and the 140+ local and virtual user groups around Automation, Storage, Security and Asset, the community is as live as it has ever been.
As the Global Tivoli User Community Manager, I wanted to share with you a few interesting facts:
FACT: 15+ User Groups formed in 2009
FACT: Most user groups try to have a physical meeting 1-2 times a year
FACT: 16 User Groups held a meeting in July and August, usually a very quite period for the Northern Hemisphere of the world.
FACT: 38+ user group meetings already scheduled for Sept - Dec. Much more to be scheduled!
FACT: 134 questions asked in July and August using the Q&A tool of the Peer to Peer Knowledge Exchange
FACT: 47 comments have been made by 19 people, using the "Be Heard" capability on www.tivoli-ug.org in July and August
So while the "slow" summer is almost over and fall is fast approaching, user group leaders are feverishly working on setting up local user group meetings and virtual meetings via conference calls before the end of the year and the upcoming Pulse Conference in Las Vegas.
Get connected today and join the Global Tivoli User Community and a user group.
If you have an upcoming user group meeting or would like to share some success stories you've experienced with the user groups, please respond to this blog and let us know!
