BITUG is the British Isles Tandem User Group            

  • BITUG is a volunteer run, non-profit making organisation. It is run by its members, for the benefit of its members.
  • Founded in 1984, BITUG is the largest Tandem (now HP NonStop) User Group outside of the USA. We are one of the most active of the world's NonStop user groups.
  • Membership is open to all users of the Tandem / Himalaya / HP NonStop range of systems in the British Isles.
  • BITUG is an affiliated member group of Connect (formerly ITUG) - the International Tandem user group.
  • We are proud of the fact that we maintain complete independence from HP (Tandem) whilst continuing a close working relationship.
  • BITUG is run by an annually elected committee drawn from membership.  Names of all the current committee members are included in the committee section of this web site.
  • We provide a program of meetings as requested by the members. Each year we try to hold at least two one-day special interest group meetings (SIGs) covering various technical issues. We also hold two education days per year.
