Friday, July 29th is National System Administrators Day and we would like to spotlight our System Administrators and their importance.

If you have ever spoken with our Help Desk Team, then you have first-hand experience with a System Administrator. They are to help determine solutions to technical issues you may be experiencing. But what does their day-to-day job really look like?

The roles of a System Administrator are board and extremely beneficial to have an organization run successfully. Their duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Managing Windows, Linux, or Mac systems
  • Upgrading, installing and configuring application software and computer hardware
  • Troubleshooting and providing technical support to employees
  • Creating and managing system permissions and user accounts
  • Performing regular security tests and security monitoring
  • Maintaining networks and network file systems

The main goal of a Sysadmins is to ensure that the uptime, performance, resources, and security of the computers they manage meet the user needs, and industry standards.
