Protect one of IT’s most valuable creatures
This Sysadmin Day, sysadmin conservation starts with you.
Sysadmin (Systema administratorum)
This IT professional is responsible for maintaining computer systems. Without the sysadmin, the computing environment would be inhospitable to users.
IT departments, server rooms
Widely distributed across industries
Caffeine, whiskey, candy from users’ desks
Why sysadmins are "endangered"
Severe shortages of appreciation
Despite their intense struggles in the wilds of IT, few sysadmins encounter the appreciation they need to flourish.
Providing continuing education
Setting realistic expectations
Reducing work during off-hours
Promoting strong interdepartmental relationships
3 ways PDQ aids sysadmin conservation
2. Sustainable deployments
Schedule deployments when they’re convenient for users. No need to come in at night or on weekends! Just set a cadence, sit back, and relax while software packages update automatically.
3. Rapid support from other sysadmins
PDQ's support and solutions team consists of experienced sysadmins who’ve been there, done that, and are ready to help. No sysadmin is ever alone in the wilderness!
