ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, announced this year’s ‘Time to Say Thank You’ contest honoring hard-working sysadmins around the world as part of the 14th annual System Administrator Appreciation Day on Friday, July 26, 2013. Users can show love for their sysadmins with a public declaration of ‘thanks’ and give them a chance to win a 1000 USD gift card. 

When was the last time your system crashed or a virus scare swept through your company? If you can’t remember, thank your sysadmin. Wherever critical devices and apps run flawlessly, day in and day out, you will find sysadmins operating behind the scenes to make life easy, simple and smooth for the rest of us. SysAdmin Day is the time to bring these workplace heroes in front and express our genuine appreciation for all they do on our behalf.

“Sysadmins are the people in the trenches, working hard behind the scenes to make the rest of us look good. They deserve kudos,” said Raj Sabhlok, President, ManageEngine, a division of Zoho Corp. “The response to our SysAdmin Day contest held in the U.S., UK, Australia and Canada last year was tremendous. So this year, we decided to make the contest global and open it up to sysadmins worldwide. We hope to get a lot more participation from Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and South America. After all, hard-working sysadmins in those regions deserve to be commended too.”

“I am thrilled that ManageEngine is joining the celebration. ManageEngine’s ‘Time to Say Thank You’ contest is a perfect way to bring recognition to sysadmins,” said Ted Kekatos, Founder of System Administrator Appreciation Day. “Due to the nature of their responsibilities, many sysadmins work long hours, nights and weekends. SysAdmin Day was started as a simple way to celebrate the profession.”
