Celebrating IT professionals today (and every day)



For some, September might signal back-to-school season, or the return of autumnal weather. But at GoTo, we’re most excited about another holiday: IT Professionals Day! (What else would you expect from a company passionate about making IT easy?)

For nearly 10 years, businesses have recognized the third Tuesday in September as IT Professionals Day, as a way to honor IT teams around the world. Today and every day, talented IT professionals are powering business – keeping systems connected, hardware operational, software updated, employees supported, and customer data secured. IT teams are essential to the success of every other part of an organization, be it large or small. 

Just how essential, you ask? We imagined a world without IT pros, where IT amateurs (aka, kids) were put in charge of solving today’s IT problems. As you might imagine, the results were…inventive. Take a look! 

And that’s why we leave IT to the pros.

All kid-ding aside (see what we did there), we could not be more appreciative of the hard work, steadfast dedication, and continual learning that IT professionals deliver. Every day brings new and evolving technical challenges and every day, IT pros rise to the occasion. Some of our own leaders at GoTo wanted to share their thoughts as we celebrate IT Professionals Day:  

“We regularly talk about how security is everyone’s job, and that couldn’t be truer for our IT pros. They are on the front lines of keeping organizations safe and secure. Thank you to all the IT teams who are first to identify potential issues before they become widespread problems. We recognize your hard work every day, but especially today on IT Pros Day.”  

– Attila Török, Chief Information Security Officer 

“Here at GoTo, IT professionals are the heart of who our teams are building our products for. You inspire our solutions with your hard work and dedication to the craft, and for that we thank you!”  

– Olga Lagunova, Chief Technology Officer 

“To all of the amazing GoGetters that make up our IT and Digital Workplace team – thank you! In the age of digital work, businesses are relying on their IT pros more than ever, and I couldn’t ask for a better team to drive GoTo’s success!”  

– Jeremy Rafuse, Vice President, Head of IT and Digital Workplace 

“Our customers impact and influence every decision we make, and today, we wanted to thank our nearly one million customers for their feedback. The feedback you provide us around your experiences with our products and teams, makes us better and allows us to grow and learn, and deliver the best customer experience possible!” 

– Scott Romesser, Chief Customer Officer 

To our customers, IT pros across the globe, and GoTo’s own IT teams, our sincerest gratitude for all that you do.
