I’ve been watching the news, as we all have been with the pandemic impacting our daily lives. We continually see tearful appreciation and tributes to doctor’s, Nurses, healthcare workers, first responders, military, teachers, which are all truly deserved. We see their challenges and heroic actions during this challenging time. What I haven't seen is any acknowledgement of the behind the scenes workers that allow these professionals to function in their roles. IT professionals work in a field where generally the only time they are acknowledged is when something goes wrong. Yet due to our Nation's dependence on IT to perform many of these functions, the IT teams that are keeping things up and rolling deserve a THANK YOU as well! After all, IT workers are designated essential by DHS.
