HDI recently published its 2014 HDI Desktop Support Practices & Salary Report, which outlines the current state of desktop support, including practices desktop support organizations currently have in place, trends over the last three years, and expectations for the near future.

How Long Does it Take to Resolve That Issue?

But what is often missing is a clear understanding of the link between the type of customer issue and the time it actually takes to resolve that particular issue.
