  43. 43. 43 The Paradox of IT Support  Less than 5% of all IT spending is allocated to end-user support  Service desk, desktop support, field support  This leads many to erroneously assume that there is little upside opportunity in IT support  The result is that most support organizations are managed with the goal of minimizing costs  But the most effective support strategies focus on maximizing value © 2015 MetricNet, LLC, www.metricnet.com Corporate IT Spending Breakdown 4% 96%: Non support functions End-User Support  Application Development  Application Maintenance  Network Operations  Mainframe and midrange Computing  Desktop Computing  Contract Services (e.g., disaster recovery)
