The Dataweavers support model is an SLA-backed model that covers P1 through P4-type events.

Our support model, with an SLA backing both page load time as a guarantee and 24/7 uptime monitoring, is one of the most robust SLAs in the market today for non-SaaS-based products, especially for complex marketing architectures like Sitecore.

Standard Support

P1 events

  • P1 is defined as a site outage where content is not serving and visitors and users of your product and service cannot get access to the digital properties.
  • A P1 event is covered 24/7 throughout the day.
  • That means that our network operations centre is monitoring your websites, monitoring your Sitecore and Adobe application, and making sure that it's serving web pages and serving content and accessing the appropriate APIs you may have integrated with on a live real-time uptime basis.


This SLA is supported by our Site Reliability team, which is based in multiple locations to provide global coverage, ensuring that your website and application are online as defined in your Managed Sitecore Agreement SLA. 

P2, P3 and P4 events

For P2 through P4 events you can access support and expect a response between 9:00am and 5:00pm in the timezone that you are contracted. We will respond as per the time in the SLA during those business hours.

That can be done through raising a support ticket through our helpdesk, or by phoning our support numbers.

Premium Support

If you choose to move up to 24/7 premium support, you will also get an SLA response time on P2 through P4 events.

We rarely recommend that you need to go to the 24/7 premium support unless you are a global organization that needs to have tickets responded to across all multiple time zones.
