When was the last time your computer crashed or you lost company internet access for a while? Probably a more relevant question is how many times have you cursed your IT department for something going wrong?
Love them or hate them, our System Administrators make our lives easy and smooth from behind the scenes. The only time we ever really see them is when something goes wrong. SysAdmin Day is the time to bring these workplace heroes to the center and express our genuine appreciation for all they do on our behalf.
“Sysadmins are the people in the trenches, working hard behind the scenes to make the rest of us look good. They deserve kudos,” said Raj Sabhlok, president of ManageEngine, a division of Zoho Corp. “The response to our SysAdmin Day contest held in the U.S., UK, Australia and Canada last year was tremendous. So this year, we decided to make the contest global and open it up to sysadmins worldwide. We hope to get a lot more participation from Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and South America. After all, hard-working sysadmins in those regions deserve to be commended too.”
“I am thrilled that ManageEngine is joining the celebration. ManageEngine's ‘Time to Say Thank You' contest is a perfect way to bring recognition to sysadmins,” said Ted Kekatos, founder of System Administrator Appreciation Day. “Due to the nature of their responsibilities, many sysadmins work long hours, nights and weekends. SysAdmin Day was started as a simple way to celebrate the profession.”
