Sitecore Audit

Outside of normal maintenance Sitecore implementations need complete audits performed every two to three years due to changes in the environment, website, growth of content and marketing maturity. As Sitecore instances grow they can become slower, unstable and harder to maintain due to either poor implementation, poor maintenance, or simply outgrowing the previous configuration. This Sitecore audit focuses on reviewing all layers of a Sitecore environment: from process, to implementation review, to future proofing.

This audit was put together from the review that Sitecore performs, years of experience of developing and maintaining Sitecore solutions, as well client-specific requirements and business rules. The scope of the audit includes, but is not limited to, the following items:

 

  • Infrastructure
