Happy Thanksgiving from TechDecisions! Today is a time to reflect on the year past, take stock of the good things in our lives, and give thanks for the blessings that we have been given.
It’s easy to forget to be thankful for the technology we successfully implement. When Bob from the Sales Department downloaded a virus that he thought was a link to a video of a cat playing the piano, and you’re working late to fix his error, daydreaming about strangling him with his own Ethernet cable, it’s easy to lose sight of things. Tough to stay thankful when your network unexpectedly goes down and you need to troubleshoot every box in the seven racks stuffed in a closet you call the server room. When Cindy calls you down to the conference room because her computer won’t connect to the presentation display, you’ll be less thankful than vengeful when you find that the problem is that she didn’t plug the HDMI cable into the back of her laptop.
Today isn’t about the weekly struggles of the technology decision maker, though. Today is a day to relax, freed from the idiocy of your coworkers and the undependability of your networking equipment. Today is a day to remember the good things in your life.
While you’re busy spending time with friends and family, eating homemade turkey, stuffing, corn, green beans, mac and cheese, and pies and cookies for dessert, let TechDecisions remind you that, while much of a tech manager’s life can be difficult, there is much to be thankful for as well.
There’s nothing like showing a clear return on your technology investment to make the higher ups take notice.
HDR makes digital signage look crisp and cool.
Whether a 1 gig network or a 10 gig network, having the proper bandwidth so the internet is running smooth is a beautiful thing.
Catch the bad guys and keep your employees safe. What could be better?
When you can replace those idiot employees with programs that will do their work for them, life gets a lot easier.
We’re stepping into the future folks, and things are going to get much cooler for tech managers.
Whether you’re on a conference call or playing ambient music for employees, good audio is a good thing.
Maybe our networks will start working better now that new standards are being introduced.
Get the technology to set itself up so the employees can’t screw anything up.
Nothing better than keeping your data safe, as long as Bob from Sales doesn’t kamikaze your tech.
When your installing new tech, Project Management best practices can help you get things done right.
Improve processes and make things more secure.
Better to hear you, my dear.
