I have been hired as IT director. I am going to have a meeting in which I will discuss IT budget.
This company has never had an internal IT. They have never spent one penny on IT. The equipment is obsolete and techologically speaking 7 -8 years behind. They are running office 2003 and free antivirus in every station and servers.
what is teh average that a company should allocate per year for IT buget in % ?
for example if the total gross revenue in 90 millions dollars per year, how much should they give me to manage per IT ?

what the normal purcentage of the total revenue that every company put on IT budget per each year ?
what are valid arguments to persuade them ? they are not used to spend moeny in IT ...
