Next Survey Finds IT Pros Felt the Heat this Summer-5 Next

Vacations

Vacation time for IT professionals comes with baggage: One-quarter of all respondents (25 percent) indicated that vacation time was more restricted for IT than other departments within their organization. Even when taking vacation, more than one-quarter of all respondents (28 percent) admitted that they will be stressed over the state of their network while they are away.

With Labor Day behind us, most people are (perhaps begrudgingly) soaking up the final days of summer… but what if your summer never really began? A recent survey from Ipswitch reveals that a majority of IT professionals really felt the heat this summer working to ensure that employees stayed connected, productive and in touch from any location.

"The summer months are a busy time for IT pros as employees expect continuous unfettered access to company networks while working from home or on vacation. A single organization can find itself with a significant bump in remote workers, all of whom may need support and assistance," said Jeff Loeb, chief marketing officer at Ipswitch. "A unified network and server performance monitoring solution will help IT pros to solve network issues before they affect employees, wherever they are working."

The report is based on a survey of 239 IT professionals in the United States. Key findings are featured in this slideshow.
