sysadmin = "System Administrator", an employee that the company hires
to be in charge of the "System"(s).

A company is a group of people.  You're not going to find on guy
in every company that's called "the company". :)  So, tasks are
assigned to inDUHviduals so that the work load can be balanced. Kind
of like distributed computing. :)
