Most network administrators would care less of what applications are put into play. In fact, most of them would rather address the firewall and network security issues before sitting down on the actual workstations individually and check which applications should be enabled and which should go.
Such is a common practice in companies that place a lot of emphasis in making sure that their workstations adhere towards policies. Further it is a good way to ensure that no untoward infections stemming from browsing or accessing files that are not permitted on the network. Source such as floppy drives or links that anyone could get from browsing can be entirely hazardous and apparently this is where a good clamp down has to be done.
But among their priorities, this is perhaps the last of their priorities. It remains that most network administrators would do well to focus on what comes in. They can do their part by limiting the access from a remote destination within the intranet but like all viruses, they will always find a way to ruin desktop programming or workstations.
Add to the fact that users could care less of what happens to their workstation as they know that the IT or MIS people are always there to rescue them. Such may be called a petty belief but as long as it works, nothing is bound to stop them from doing so. That is perhaps one reason why most administrators have a hard time managing networks. People fail to go deeper on how to safeguard them.
If we look at standard operational procedures, we would see most jobs and workloads relying so much on manual labor. But that was yesterdayâ€™s news. These days, we have seen the power of technology as some tasks have shown the latest injection of computers and systems to make jobs accurate and faster.
This is not to say that man cannot do routine work on his own. But the real competitive leverage these days is being fast and efficient. Apparently this has become the benchmark for companies to be at par with modern companies and also a means of getting them a step ahead. In the corporate world, you cannot afford to nap and if you do, chances are you will find yourself tailing other companies that are the frontrunners for success.
While the presence of a computer desktop may seem like a threat to most workers today, it should not. Computers are innovations and they are in now way present to take the place of hands-on labor. This is the wrong perception that most people put in their minds today. Rather than cooperate and enjoy the fruits of making their work easier, they make it harder by treating these fruits as banes to their livelihood.
This is crab mentality that many just cannot figure out. Rather than make life easier, they take at the influx of computers and gadgets as a step towards a different direction. So rather than enjoy and even look forward to gaining additional knowledge from these technology developments, they are showing that they have resistance and may even lose the opportunity to advance in knowledge and experience. In job requirements these days, you will notice that computer literacy is a must. Perhaps people should look at this chance as working to their advantage.
