It’s almost that time of year- summer. For many of us we won’t get the summer off, even though the kids of all ages might, we’re toiling away in a datacenter somewhere getting things going well for the next year. This happens in every industry surprisingly, not just in the education space. Summer tends to be one of the busiest seasons in IT because employee attendance is so low already due to vacations and other absences. Simply put, summer is when stuff gets done.
Don’t let the summer projects consume your life though. Put your Dell KACE appliances to work- let them handle the imaging, software deployments, packing your bags, and patching your machines. Wait… They can’t pack your bags… Okay- you do the packing. Then, go camping, go exploring, go to the couch, just GO. I encourage you to take a vacation this year. So many of the IT Admins that I talk to every year measure time in the number of years since their last vacation. Let’s get that down to months or even weeks- work with your team and management to get some time to recover. Even if it’s a mini-vacation of leaving at noon on Friday to go see the newest movie you can’t wait for. Let the KACE Appliances fill in for you, and go recharge your batteries.
Happy Summer to you!
