There’s a positive to being in IT during the holidays?

IT during the holidays can be stressful, but there’s a bright side.

In yesterday’s post, we covered some of the added “challenges” the holiday season brings to our IT staff.  You know, like the extra non-work-related traffic overloading the network or the scores of people who will be “working remotely” and suddenly need you assistance. However, let’s put that aside for a minute as there is a bright side to being in IT during the holidays.

First of all, the holiday season is a great time to try out new equipment and technologies you would like to see implemented in the coming year. I mean, that’s when all the new toys and gadgets come out and if you’re in IT, you must be into that sort of thing. You can check out the some of the “must-have” technology here.

Playing with new technology is a fun aspect of working in IT. And, around the holidays, is an ideal time to experiment since not only is that when new technology comes out, but a lot of people will be out of the office. Depending on how hectic things are at work, you may even allow your staff to take a few days off to play with their own new, personal devices–at home. Anything in the name of R & D. I mean, it isn’t as though employees aren’t going to be bringing their gadgets into the office next week–looking for a little professional counsel.

Yes, while the holiday season can be a little hectic for those in IT, remember there is a bright side. And, it goes without saying that with the proper preparation beforehand, you can glide through the holiday season like Santa on his sleigh. So, don’t fear the holidays and enjoy the new toys.

At Invenio IT, we wish you a happy holiday season and hope you get all the gadgets on your wish list (and, if you need some ideas, give us shout).
