Too much overtime, too many change projects, and summer still can’t decide to stay with us for keeps? Just let it out! Because that’s just what International Panic Day is for—and it’s today. Despite what the name might suggest, no dark remembrance is held on this day. Rather, it’s a purely fun holiday, the origin of which is totally unknown—it just turned up some sunny day. According to the Fun Holiday Calendar, there are two different ways to celebrate June 18. Either you panic about anything and anyone—shriek!!! tremble!!! sweat!!!—or you do the exact opposite: lean back and look at all the bustle around you, as deeply relaxed as a koala bear. Clear off, chaos! Welcome, peace of mind! Incidentally, the Fun Holiday Calendar provides further suggestions for reaching this enviable state of mind; this same day is Picnic Day, and in the U.S., it’s also “National Splurge Day,” a day to indulge in something delicious.
Now, there are certain professional groups that such a day seems particularly perfect for. Admins and IT officers continuously suffer grave injuries to their nervous constitutions in their everyday work: ever-changing requirements set by operational departments, crafty users trying new ways to get around existing policies, and endpoint devices the deployed system management solution just can’t get under control.
Should difficult-to-manage IT environments in your organization account for part of your frustration, then this day could be an ideal opportunity to talk to your boss about bringing in Parallels® Mac Management for Microsoft® SCCM. This enables you to enhance your Microsoft SCCM deployment by fully integrating all Mac clients in your organization. You’ll never again have to be annoyed about rogue clients causing extra cost and evading centralized control. Extremely good for your nerves—and not only on International Panic Day.
