DJLong,

Are you looking for a template? How urgently do you need it? There are many who would share templates with you on this forum but you need to tell how urgently do you need. We are professional hackers and we could hack the best in class template for you depending on your urgency and your ability to pay for what you want.

Otherwise, please let me inform you that we share only common sense which comes free and takes its own sweet time.

Thanks for the reply, there is a slight urgency but I am not prepared to pay for someone to hack a template, all I am asking if for some help and guidance,

Thanks

D,

however big your hurry, only include information for which you have identified a need (purpose).

There is no great value in generic information. It either gets ignored, people find ways to use it (often without understanding what it means), and your reporting system gets a bad name and when you start over, doing it right, you have an up-hill struggle.

For each metric you include, make sure you understand what it means, to whom it will be useful, what it will be used for, how accurately you can warrant it to be.

If the report is for your customer(s), then it is best if it relates to the specified levels of service.

Be wary of top level stats (like total number of incidents). They often provide less useful information than they seem and they can certainly conceal much more valuable information (200 incidents last week - 195 on the new system; 200 incidents last week - 17 bringing down whole service for between 30 and 90 minutes; 200 incidents last week - 83 documentary faults found by intensive review). In other words the grand total is not the big picture.

Thanks Diarmid,

This report is soley tailored for IT management, I want to get a hig level overview and then have the ability to break down into all the local Helpdesk that are within the company that I work for.

DJL,

but what is the report for? What will IT management use it for. That is how you decide what to put in.

I stick to my view that a high level overview of this nature is likely to be deceptive rather than informative.
