IT: Your Real-Life Superhero

by | May 2, 2014

What do Batman, Superman, Spiderman and your organization’s IT staff members have in common? Each one of them is called upon to swoop in and save the day.

Whenever there’s trouble, who always comes to the rescue? That’s right, and then they generally retreat back into the shadows, waiting until the next time someone is in need. Sure, there are plenty of regular tasks to handle back at the Bat Cave, but their real time to shine is when wrongs need to be righted. In the business context, this ensures that the organization is not crippled by downtime and has an immense impact on efficiency. You may be skeptical of the comparison and sure, Batman has super intelligence; Superman has super-human strength and the ability to fly; Spiderman has super agility and “spider-senses”; but the IT department is able to overcome monumental obstacles without the resources of Bruce Wayne or the ability to turn back time.

So in honor of the 12th annual Free Comic Book Day—the first Saturday of every May when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books to anyone who visits their stores—here’s a friendly reminder to thank your IT staff for all the amazing things they do. To help get you in the spirit of the day we also invite you to check out our own comic strip, Worlds Apart: The Misadventures of Lenny & Poe.
