You’re reading this because all over the world IT professionals are at work keeping the internet’s vast array of routers, servers, switches and other equipment functioning.
Unless you work for a telecom or one of the organizations that plays a role in keeping the internet operating, chances are you’ll never meet these network engineers and system administrators.
But you know the guy or gal who fixes your computer problems when you call. Even if you’ve never met them in person, you’ve come to rely on them to be there when you say “Help!”
These are the unsung tech heroes we recognize today on IT Professionals Day. And never before have we all had so much to thank them for.
When the COVID pandemic closed offices across the world, IT professionals made it possible for employees to work from home.
Their round the clock work keeps us in touch with friends and family, enables students to attend class remotely, and makes it possible for us to consult a doctor by video from home.
As SolarWinds, founder of National IT Pro Day in 2015, says, “The success of organizations during the reality of an unprecedented global pandemic is due in large part to IT pros’ preparedness and ability to adapt and manage through substantial change. We didn’t know it at the time, but all your training, ideas, and skillsets were leading up to this year’s events, which saw entire organizations rely on IT teams to keep their business up and running.”
We at Green Key Resources join with the millions of others in saying thank you to all IT professionals. We are grateful for everything you do. And, to quote SolarWinds, “If we’ve learn anything from our IT pros this year, it’s they’re ready, willing, and able to tackle any challenge head-on.”
