The first Symposium in Germany took place 1978 in Karlsruhe. It was then an informal gathering of likeminded folks, seeking to improve their usage of IT systems of its time. While so much has changed  in IT in the last 40 years, ever since the user community in Germany enjoyed the participation of highly skilled and very knowledgeable professionals. Furthermore, they are eager to share their knowledge to the benefit of the user community, as well as the individual member. Applying the gathered practical knowledge in their daily jobs – to develop their companies’ IT mission and their careers – helps them grow personally and professionally.

From the beginning Hewlett Packard Enterprise and its predecessors where not only a sponsor of the user communities, but also a trusted and reliable partner that helped and develop the user community activities, as a vital part of the HPE ecosystem.
 
For 10 years now, GTUG and Connect Deutschland are working closely together to embrace the diverseness in both the HPE portfolio and the user community to be the comprehensive, independent source of unbiased knowledge about the full Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
 
For the sixth time since 2012, we invite the European and International user community, not only to learn the latest on HPE technology, industry trends and what’s next in an outside the enterprise, but also to get to know an interesting part of Germany and its history:  “Connect and GTUG  - Go International!”
 
To celebrate 40 years of Symposia in Germany and 10 years of Connect Deutschland and GTUG, we invite you to three/four days of

  • Getting insights from business and industry as well as technical experts and solution partners across the Hewlett Packard Enterprise
  • Sharing your experience with the HPE user community and giving feedback to HPE and partners
  • Joining educational workshops
  • Networking with your peers

This international conference will provide you with all about current development on Hewlett  Packard Enterprise platforms, including HPE NonStop, Cloud, Server, Storage and Networking.  The conference  will be conducted in English, with a limited number of local sessions in German.

We are very fortunate to consistently receive strong support from senior HPE management, Connect Worldwide and HPE partner vendors, who enable us to put together an international agenda featuring keynotes from HPE and others, as well as user and vendor presentations and training.
 
After a day of intense learning, we will provide a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere to continue the conversation with your peers.
 
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Leipzig.
