ManageEngine launched the "Invisible Yet Invincible" campaign to celebrate the 19th annual SysAdmin Day on July 27.

Available online now, the campaign's contest, giveaways and e-cards honor the people responsible for the occasion, sysadmins. While the work of sysadmins remains a mystery for many end users, the company's campaign underscores the true power of sysadmins and the appreciation they deserve.


"With the business and technology landscape changing at breakneck speed, every organization worth its salt depends on its sysadmins. These unsung masters of IT truly deserve praise," said Ajay Kumar, Head of Global Marketing at ManageEngine. "Over the past decade, we've never missed an opportunity to express our gratitude and respect for the invisible yet invincible sysadmins across the globe."

To commemorate SysAdmin Day, ManageEngine created a microsite that offers several avenues for acknowledging and celebrating the efforts of sysadmins, including:

- Guess the word: In this guessing game, users have to enter the correct IT-related word or phrase based on the clues displayed.

- Pixel art: With ManageEngine's pixel art creator, users can create their own masterpiece and share it on social media to win prizes. Show off your creativity.

- E-cards: ManageEngine designed a collection of e-cards that users can send to their sysadmins as a personalized token of appreciation.

The company has also lined up SysAdmin Day giveaways ranging from iPads to Google Home Minis for winners of the word game and art contest. There is also a grand prize, a 55" 4K LED TV, for one winner selected from those who participate in all three of the above activities.
