HP TRIM User Forum & Conference (TUF22) – It’s Back

By Helen Barnes 

I’m excited!  The HP TRIM User Forum is on again soon!  Can you believe this valuable event has been going for over 21 years?  I’ve been lucky enough to attend several TUFs both as a customer and also as an employee of HP Software.  My first was the Tasmanian (Hobart) TUF in 2001.  It was an eye opening experience for me for a couple of reasons:

  1. I’d never been that cold in my life (I’m from Darwin, it was still Winter)

  2. I was meeting all these fantastic people who were passionate about the same thing as me – this best-practice document and records management system – HP TRIM.

TUF has always been an event that I’ve taken incredible amounts of information away from (and had a little bit of fun too).  It was the only time I got a chance to talk to likeminded people from all over our region face to face.  We all know we experience the same problems in trying to get our staff to embrace information management and HP TRIM, and that some of us are moving forward more quickly than others – TUF lets us get together and hear what these movers and shakers are doing, then we can fly home and apply their ideas and lessons learnt in our own organisations.

The other unique feature of TUF that I love is that it also gave me a chance to talk to the people who actually wrote the software!  It was quite an honour to talk to these people (not that I understood them half the time – geeks) who’d produced this fantastic application about the way HP TRIM worked and things I’d come across while using it.

This year I’m presenting (can you hear my knees knocking?) and I’m excited for lots of new reasons.  This year I get to infect you with my passion for HP TRIM, I get to talk to you all about the things you love and any issues you may have with HP TRIM and I get to see you all interact with each other and watch the learning happen!

If you haven’t already, get yourself to and register to this awesome event.  If you have any enquiries about TUF22 please contact
