Get ready for the HP EMEA Customer Forum next week. If you can’t attend, follow us via Twitter!

The 7th bi-annual HP Software EMEA Service and Portfolio Management Customer Forum is a few days away. It is April 16-17 at the Sheraton Hotel in Brussels, Belgium. I have been looking forward to this event for awhile. It is one of my favorite events. 

Before I head to the Customer Forum, let me share a couple of things …


2 days, more than 10 customer speakers, more than 100 attendees

On April  16 and 17 there will be two days packed with insights from our HP SPM experts and executives and – wow – more than ten customer presentations.

I am sure there is a lot in there for everybody. Customer speakers come from various companies across industries, including Aareon AG, Anadolu Hayat EmeklilikContinental Automotive GmbH, Hemit (Helse Midt-Norge IT), Raiffeisen-IT, RWE IT, SAPSPAR, Steria, TDC and Turkcell.

You can still register for the event, even on-site.

If you are not able to attend next week, there is another opportunity to be a part of the action. We will post live from the customer forum and you can follow @HPITSM on Twitter to get the latest. I will share my impressions, key observations, discussion topics etc. while being there.

I look forward to seeing you in Brussels or meeting you via Twitter.


Have a nice day,
