This course showed how important well-managed system administration and maintenance are. System administration includes the planning, configuration, and maintenance of computer systems. The aim of the system administrator is to keep the system alive and running well so that users can perform a maximum amount of useful work, which is the amount of user-data modified on the computer system and the information transmitted to or from remote locations.
In the Bible, God indicated that man “will have power over the fish, the birds, and all animals domestic and wild and all the earth” (Gen 1:26) and assigns to man the work “to cultivate (develop) it and guard (preserve, take care of) it” (Gen. 2:15). So, although humans have the function of authority (right to decide) over resources, humans also have the responsibility of attaining a goal, which is to develop, improve, and cultivate in harmony with all that is on the earth, guarding it against decay and deterioration.
Find an example of lost productivity due to ill-managed system administration and maintenance that occurred this year. In 250-400 words, summarize the incident and explain how it could have been prevented from the perspective of the Christian worldview.
