Looking for IT Staffing Ratio's

By wturner ·
I am looking for key ratios pertaining to IT staffing and departmental optimization and on task utilization as I am attempting to perform an Apples to Apples comparision of the internal cost of IT vs outsourcing. Does anyone have experience with this or can you point me in the direction of appropriate resources? For example am I better off with a generalist that spends 20% of their time on security vs outsourcing this issue all together.

Lots of variables

A lot depends on the size of your organization, what functions you need to perform and how critical those functions are.

If security is at all critical, I would avoid outsourcing it. In general outsorcing is more expensive than doing it in house. The only times I would outsorce is if I had a short term project, or I couldn't hire any qualified people.
