ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced its plans for celebrating the 17th annual SysAdmin Day on July 29, 2016. This year, the company is celebrating IT superheroes with a collection of Leonardo DiCaprio-themed movie posters as well as a sysadmeme contest, a sneak-peek video, e-cards and a word hunt game. The entire campaign can be found on PitStop, the ManageEngine community, at https://www.manageengine.com/community/sysadminday/2016.html.
“SysAdmin Day is a great opportunity for us to appreciate the silent strength behind all things related to IT,” said Vidya Vasu, Head of the ManageEngine Community. “Sysadmins are not just our day-to-day IT problem solvers; they are our warriors who continuously help keep IT and the business up and running in every organization. To commemorate the day, we at PitStop have launched a fun campaign that we hope will unleash their creativity and give each one of us an opportunity to acknowledge the value they bring to the table. Besides holding a meme contest, e-cards designing and a word search game, we have also released quirky, printable posters that will be a fun add-on to their already decorated desks!”
The ManageEngine SysAdmin Day 2016 campaign includes:
Sysadmemes – This caption-writing contest encourages sysadmins to let their creative juices flow and come up with memes around their work. The contest is open and new entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. PDT on July 22. Twenty winners will each receive a $25 Amazon gift card. The contest can be accessed at https://pitstop.manageengine.com/sysadminday/2016.html#Sysadmemes. Contest results will be announced on Friday, July 29.
These movie posters will make you think twice about the sysadmin sitting in the next cubicle. The posters spoof a few popular scenes in DiCaprio movies, giving them an IT twist and turning them into images sysadmins will be happy to have on their desks and as wallpaper. The posters are available at https://pitstop.manageengine.com/sysadminday/2016.html#Posters .
