Ensure Sitecore is the best it can be

Sitecore platform assessment

What is the Platform assessment?

Kin + Carta has years of experience, not only in Sitecore but in numerous DXP and CMS platforms. During this time we have learnt what can make a good platform bad, and more importantly how to make the platform great. Our Sitecore platform assessment is specifically tailored to review an implementation against our comprehensive checklist and identify where there are opportunities to improve and get more value from the platform.

Who is the platform assessment for?

A platform assessment is useful for Sitecore customers who are starting to evaluate their current platform and existing martech solutions. A platform assessment can bring opportunities to rejuvenate the platform, look for quick wins whilst also evaluating the long term strategy for the platform.

The platform assessment is something that can be delivered on a regular basis such as annually. Repeat runs of the process are useful for assessing progress, course corrections and platform evolution.

Marketing Operations

Our marketing operations element of the platform assessment primarily focuses on the authoring and marketing users of the platform. Here we are looking to ensure that users aren't hindered by the platform or look for new ways to work that deliver efficiencies.

  • Content Management
  • Content life-cycle
  • Marketing efficiency
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Training requirements
  • Usability

Our platform assessment is the product of years of working with a range of clients from small to enterprise, seeing what has gone well, common pitfalls and the best way to get value and plan for the future.

Infrastructure and technical

Our infrastructure and technical checklist focuses on getting into the heart of the platform. The idea is to ensure that the platform is running the best it can, this can include checking the versions of software installed, working with the client to understand if it would be of benefit to upgrade to the latest version. We also check the performance of the platform, balancing potential costs against benefit of introducing more complexity into the solution.

  • Performance and scalability
  • Hardware performance
  • Integrations
  • Failover and DR
  • Documentation
  • Delivery strategy
  • Backup and restore
  • Support cases
