London was a very beautiful host city for the recent in-person BITUG (British Isles Tandem User Group) event, where attendees enjoyed a reunion among friends, colleagues, and HPE NonStop legends of old. At long last, BITUG was able to reconvene after being canceled for several years due to the COVID pandemic. The face-to-face nature of the event enabled interactive dialogue after the presentations, during coffee breaks, and during lunch. We were also very excited to meet and welcome several new faces to the HPE NonStop EMEA region.
Attendees enjoyed Neil Davis’s State of the Nation, where he gave an excellent business summary of HPE NonStop and its recent growth, and also shared the floor with Ben Locke, an HPE intern. Ben is working with Neil and maintaining a rather comprehensive and advanced spreadsheet to track system order to delivery (not an easy task with today’s supply chain issues!).
Collin Yates and Mani Rajesh of TCM presented Shadowbase Migration for a Central Bank, a BASE24 migration use case. Attendees were engaged and we thoroughly enjoyed the ensuing discussion after the talk. Iain Liston-Brown gave an HPE Update Including Hardware and Software Offerings, Grant Adonis and Graham Rogers presented Getting the Most out of Your Security Bundle. Later in the event, Paul Holenstein, Gravic EVP, presented HPE Shadowbase Product News.
We would like to thank the BITUG board and HPE for coordinating this event, the other vendors for sponsoring, and, of course, the customers for attending this successful event. Congratulations to Peter Watt from Wallstreet for winning our JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth Speaker prize!
