Application Programmer Staffing Ratios

April, 2016


With the changing IT environment, IT organizations can benefit from a periodic assessment of their application programmer staffing levels. This study uses three metrics to benchmark this function: application programmers as a percentage of the IT staff, users per application programmer, and applications per application programmer. We provide benchmarks for the composite sample, by organization size, and by sector. We also provide a benchmark for the larger Application Group, which includes all personnel engaged in developing and maintaining applications. (19 pp., 9 fig.)
