With the holiday season upon us, it’s time for being with loved ones, gift giving, and, of course, blinking red and green lights that don’t indicate trouble in the data center or on the network. One additional time-honored tradition comes to mind: writing wish lists, of course.

While children may wish for ponies and parents a vacation, what do IT professionals wish for? With that in mind, SolarWinds recently asked its THWACK community of more than 130,000 IT professionals just that.

In response, some said they would wish for more uptime, while others said they would ask for more secure networks and dedicated funding for education and certification. Overall, however, the responses shed light on what’s most important to IT professionals. But it also begs the age-old question: Will they get what they asked for this year?

So, pour some eggnog, sit down by the fire, and enjoy reading what other IT professionals are hoping for in the upcoming year.

Here’s to hoping dreams really do come true. Happy holidays!
