This IDC study discusses the results of IDC's research of the sales operations function. This research provides a detailed evaluation and analysis of the best and emerging practices across sales operations teams at the technology industry's largest and best-performing companies. A framework is provided to help sales operations teams identify key weaknesses and gaps in their current structure. Also provided is IDC's guidance on the key components required to enable the transition to the next-generation sales operations team, including recommendations sales operations staffing levels.
"Sales costs are outpacing revenue growth, sales organizations are increasing in complexity, and IT buyers continue to indicate that sales reps are out of touch with their needs," says Michael Gerard, vice president of IDC's Sales Advisory Practice. "The sales operations team must be the key driver and catalyst for increased productivity across the sales organization, setting the vision for its future and maintaining the path toward this vision. However, significant organizational and structural changes are required with sales operations teams to achieve this goal. With the right strategy and individuals in place, sales operations teams have the potential to be the catalyst for establishing a best-in-class, agile sales organization."
