Sitecore Audit FAQs

What is a Sitecore Audit?

A Sitecore Audit is a complete technical assessment of your existing Sitecore instance. It should be conducted by certified Sitecore experts who know Sitecore like the back of their hands. This typically means a certified senior developer or architect. You’ll want to select a Sitecore Partner who has multiple audits under their belt and case studies to share. Check out Fishtank’s work here.

Sitecore audits are the most useful when major changes or important decisions are to be made in the upcoming future. The outcomes of an audit will not only show your executives and key decision makers a high-level overview, but also allow your technical team to gain deep insights and recommendations on what’s to come next.

Sitecore Audits are not evil or supposed to be scary. They’re a healthy step in the implementation process and help keep you on the right path.

If you’re starting off with a new Sitecore Partner, or need to get a project back on track, Sitecore Audits are a great starting point to see where everything’s at. They’ll let your Sitecore Partner:

  • Have a clear picture of your current Sitecore implementation
  • Know if they’re fully ready to support your specific Sitecore project and not cut any corners
  • Provide you with fact-based insights about what needs to be done for your implementation
