TeamDynamix commissioned a report from Information Week to look at IT team resource drain; key findings show that 58% of IT team members are spending 2-3 months a year on manual, mundane ‘toil’ that can be automated.


Columbus, OH – September 20, 2022 – Information Week and TeamDynamix have released a new market study; State of IT Team Resource Drain. Key findings indicate that IT teams spend an inordinate amount of time on mundane tasks such as password resets, active directory updates, software provisioning, and onboarding/offboarding employees. According to the report, 58% of IT teams spend 2-3 months a year fulfilling repetitive requests from the business; IT leaders are looking to reduce the friction.

Wasted Hours: Where is this time Going?

“I refer to this type of work as toil,” states Andrew Graf, chief product officer at TeamDynamix. “When we have highly educated IT teams spending hours, weeks, months doing things like updating the active directory with new employees or group updates, we are missing the big picture. All of this can, and should be, automated so IT Service teams can focus on more strategic work aimed at helping the business.”


Highly skilled IT workers spend much of their time on repetitive, mundane chores to either service their customers or tie together the growing ecosystem of apps and cloud services that support the business.


Data from InformationWeek’s 2022 State of IT Team Resource Drain survey report shows that IT teams are
spending weeks, and even months, of people-hours per year on the least innovative scut work. When
they do build out automation workflows and integrations, the scripts powering them are often
uncontrolled, lack visibility, and are ripe for redundancies. This is causing significant backlogs and
failing to meet the needs of stakeholders and the business at large.

The report highlights extraordinary wait times by the business for simple automation and integration requests with averages of 3-6 months. The outcome points to a need for no-code automation and integration to minimize IT team resource drain while improving response times for IT Service Management (ITSM) teams.
