4 Why Can't IT Service Desks Get It Right? What the Service Desk Provides: IT Service Desk Monthly Performance Report January February What the business responds with: So what Tickets Opened First Contact Resolution Rate 62% 65% Average Hold Time 36 seconds 36 seconds Average Talk Time 8 minutes 8 minutes Abandonment Rate Customer Satisfaction Rate 4.9% 5.1% Solid performance by industry standards does not automatically equate to business value
5 Too much to measure! Messages per Second MTRS % Projects Completed Disk/Network Throughput
6 Adopt a Balanced Approach to Metrics Productivity End User Satisfaction IT Staff Satisfaction Efficiency
7 Align Your Metrics Goal CSF KPI Metric(s)
8 You Have to Ask!
9 Prove Value or Perish By 2014, 30% of IT organizations will experience staffing reductions of 10% or more due to the inability to clearly show value in IT services. Why it won't happen: I&O Organizations will no longer utilize unaligned canned reports available in ITSSM Tools in favor of value based reporting I&O organizations will work closely with the business to understand their perception of value to ensure services delivered are measured against the business users desires rather than operational goals of the I&O I&O organizations will mature in the manner they utilize metrics to ensure proper business alignment Why it will happen: IT Key Metrics data shows both IT Spending as a Percent of Operational Expense and IT Spending as a Percent of Revenue declining over the past 5 years with no projection of increasing. Staffing is the largest percent of spend of the I&O organization I&O organizations are not maturing the manner in which they present metrics surrounding their services I&O organizations will not properly align metrics against CSF s of the business.

14 Will IT Self-Service and Automation (Finally) Reduce IT Service Desk Staffing? By 2014, 20% of IT organizations will reduce Level 1 IT service desk staff by 50%. Reasons why SPA will be true Continued failure of IT service desks to demonstrate business value Continued budget constraints will cause IT organizations to mandate self-service as a primary support option Reallocation of IT service desk functions to Level 2 will only consist of specific issue types Reasons why SPA will be false Continued organizational investment in IT service desk maturity Current levels of investment are too significant to cut bait Technology becomes too complex for users to manage demand efficiently in a self-service model

33 Gartner Predicts Strategic Planning Through 2012, the average handle time of an IT service desk request will increase by 15%. By 2014, 90% of the ITSD market will be shared by 10% of the vendors (which is an increase from 80% in 2011), due to growth of market leaders and vendor consolidation. By 2014, 30% of IT organizations will experience staffing reductions of 10% or more due to the inability to clearly show value in IT services. By 2015, 25% of organizations will incorporate game mechanics for IT service support processes. By 2015, 90% IT service desk and ITSSM tool vendors will provide new social media and collaborative features for IT support functions within their standard offerings. By 2015, at least two of the following social attributes (networking, publishing, feedback and analytics) will be included in the majority of IT service desk standard offerings. By 2015, less than 2% of interactions currently solved by the IT service desk will be solved through internal end-user communities. By 2017, 50% of IT service desk Level 1 analysts in large organizations will use mobility technologies in their delivery of service, which is major increase from the current 3% level. 33
34 Recommendations Identify opportunities for IT service desk evolution. Take small steps as necessary. Involve the IT service desk in the definition stages of new or changing IT services, positioning them to be better informed and ready to support services more efficiently. Perform a detailed ROI analysis to understand how future IT service desk improvement efforts and technology innovation will affect efficiency, costs and quality. Provide support analysts with service view data to enable faster problem identification. Enhance IT service notification, end-user satisfaction surveying and IT self-service with the use of social media. Differentiation among ITSD vendors will be outside of the core product in the corollary products. Consider the five-year TCO of a SaaS solution rather than just the purchase price.
35 Action Plan for IT Support Organizations Monday Morning Develop an IT service desk mission statement that demonstrates commitment to efficiency, cost optimization, and user satisfaction.
