Is this year going by fast or what? It feels like I was putting together the January mission just last week. We're already into May and if you're anything like me, you've been planning your summer vacation(s). Another thing we may have in common is having trouble putting work down even when you're out of the office. Of course your reasons probably involve ensuring your end-users are taken care of while you're gone, I simply have separation anxiety from the "thwackPack" if we aren't in touch every few days. Luckily, I work on a SaaS based platform to make changes on the fly. And for all of you IT Pros, DameWare Remote Support 11.0 provides support to end-users whether you're in office or on the other side of the world. Let's take a trip around the world to learn more on just how DRS 11.0 can make those work-related tasks a breeze while you're enjoying a Mai Tai on your next vacation.
