As you’d expect, a SYSPRO technical support position comes with heavy intellectual responsibilities. This morning, for example, I sat at my desk drinking coffee while pondering the question of superheroes. The exercise proved profitable – I have ascertained, after deep cogitation, that superheroes have a great deal to tell us about the appropriate modes and uses of SYSPRO support.
Let’s take a look at two iconic superheroes: Batman and Superman. Batman, in the language of SYSPRO, is an Onsite Champion – he lives in Gotham City, he works for the betterment of Gotham City, and his skill set includes an intimate knowledge of local conditions. He’s who you call if someone has robbed Gotham Bank or stolen a jeweled thingummybob from the Gotham Museum. Note that Batman’s problems rarely spread beyond the immediate area of his expertise, and that the villains are usually human.
