Yes read the ITIL books. However those are not standards they are best practices.
Speaking of the transition from Helpdesk to ServiceDesk. Then you would need to understand the definition first:
HelpDesk:is an information and assistance resource that troubleshoots problems with computers or other products.
ServiceDesk is an ITIL function that is fully integrated with all service management processes - including change, configuration, and service level management - across the organization.
For someone in your situation, I would suggest that you get the ITIL Service Support book and read about it. There is different types of Service Desks, technologies, reports and metrics as mentioned in your topic.

Statistics serve objectives and when you let them out of that cage they become uncontrollable. Don't let your statistics define your objectives by deciding them first. Don't measure things just because you can or just because other people do. Measure things because the measurements will answer questions you already have.
So determine your objectives and then derive from these what statistics you want and what you will use them for. _________________ "Method goes far to prevent trouble in business: for it makes the task easy, hinders confusion, saves abundance of time, and instructs those that have business depending, both what to do and what to hope."
