Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

  • Do I need to be certified to engage with a PTA?
    PTAs are intended to support partner resources who are already trained and certified (or are actively pursuing certification).

  • When should I engage a PTA for implementation review?
    Requests for implementation review should be done before the commencement of the project.

  • Are there any requirements for engaging a PTA in an implementation review?
    An implementation review will only be offered if the partner has put a minimum of three appropriately certified team members on the project.

  • What does an engagement with a PTA look like? How often will we meet?
    A lead PTA will determine the right cadence of check-ins to be followed over the course of the project (Minimum: one check-in every two weeks).

  • Can I set up a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with the PTA team?
    There are no SLAs on PTA requests. The commitment is the best effort only. Partners who need committed response times should engage with professional services.

  • Can I use PTAs as an extension of my development team?
    PTAs are advisory only. They will not create deliverables for partners.

  • What are some things PTAs won’t help with?
    PTAs will not assist with product defects. Suspected defects should be routed through support. PTAs also do not handle any issues related to pricing, program compliance, etc.

Do take note that only certified Sitecore Developers can raise tickets on the support portal.
