This special collection is a valuable source for IT executives interested in planning IT headcounts and benchmarking their IT support levels with those of similar organizations. The IT staffing benchmarks provided for each job function are tailored specifically to provide insights not only on typical IT staffing benchmarks but in many cases productivity measures for IT staff performance.
Over 100 specific IT support metrics are provided, as shown below.
An important consideration is whether to analyze the ratio of IT staff to employees or the IT staff to users. We have found that the metrics are more accurate and more useful when based on the number of users of IT, rather than traditional "IT staff to employee" ratios. We also provide IT staff size metrics at the 25th percentile, median, and 75th percentile, which shows the normal variation around the median for each IT staff ratio.
Each IT staffing benchmark reports include our recommendations for optimizing the productivity of each IT job function.
