Call for Customer Participants: New Hitachi Vantara Community Platform Testing

Blog Post created by Jill Ross Employee on Jun 19, 2019

Hi Members,


In mid-July 2019, we will be moving the Hitachi Vantara Community off of our existing community platform (Jive) and onto a new platform (Salesforce Community Cloud). This is the first of many communications you will see over the next several weeks regarding this transition. You can learn more here: FAQ: Hitachi Vantara Community Platform Migration - August 9, 2019


We are keeping the fundamentals of the community intact and migrating all of our existing content and user profiles. You will still be able to do all of the following on our new platform:

  • Ask and answer questions
  • Participate in discussions
  • Read and comment on blogs
  • Access knowledge articles & documents
  • Connect with other members 
  • Continue to earn points for your contributions
  • Join Groups related to your interests
  • Follow topics you care about most


However, because this is a new set of features and functionality, there will be some significant changes to how you complete those activities and where you will find the communities and content that matter most to you. Our team is in the process of developing plenty of training material to help you along the way, so stay tuned for further updates.


In the meantime, we are looking for customer and partner volunteers who would like to take the new community for a test drive and provide constructive feedback to help us ensure a smooth transition for all of our members. If you are interested in participating in our user acceptance testing, please leave a comment below and we will invite you to join a testing group. We anticipate we'll need about 2-3 hours of your time over the next week or so to complete the testing.


We appreciate your participation and look forward to the next chapter for the Hitachi Vantara Community.


Kind Regards,

The Hitachi Vantara Community Team
