When the year is ending and everybody is thinking about XMAS in a lot of IT departments it starts to get hectic. There is some IT budget left and it has to be spended before the year is ending. I have seen this in many businesses and it is especially true for government organisations. So like at home where I have to assemble some Lego Toys for my children on XMAS there are delivered a lot of large packages at the office that have to be unboxed and rolled out into production before the year is ending. So not for all IT folks the end of the year is as relaxed as it should be. On the first weeks of the new Year I had often to do a lot of clean up work to get everything right for that was no time during the installation like monitoring and documentation.
Hopefully you all have finished your 2015 projects in time and stayed at home with your family at XMAS instead of being busy in the office.
Happy New Year 2016.
