First time here, and need some help. I'm new in the T industry, and I have been looking for a chrt that describes how many IT Admins needed per employees. I hope someone out there can guide me in the right direction.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I don’t know of any chart per se for determining how many adimins are needed per x employees. We have one person providing desktop support to my division which has about 80 employees. In addition, this admin is also responsible for several other application servers.

When I was dedicated to desktop support, I was responsible for 106 Win 95b desktop machines and three servers (1 Unix, 1 NT and 1 VAX).

There is a case study on Microsoft’s site showing lots of information about a particular company, and I think they are a bit overloaded with Admins., but that may be a result of Active Directory.

    A company I worked for in the past (an accounting firm) calculated it out to 1 IT Admin per every 70 employees. But, if you have the right systems management application and methodologies in place, you can lower that ratio significantly.

    Hi, I work for a large corporate and we have around 70000 accounts of which 6500 are managed out of the UK where we have 1 security administrator (user account admin and associated operations) and one Systems Administrator (server admin and the rest) In the US there are two Security administrators looking after around 30000 user accounts. We've been using Notes for a long time (since V3.x) so we've streamlined a lot of our processes - the Admin client and the Admin Process make the job much easier. Perhaps you could be a little clearer in what you expect the 'Adminisrator' to do - all admin including server maintenance and end user support? regards Dave

    We have about 60 to 70 employees to one admin.
