1. What is an Atlassian Technical Account Manager (TAM)?
An Atlassian TAM is a post-sales advisory service available for purchase by qualified enterprise customers. The TAM functions as a trusted advisor from Atlassian to validate that the customer is deploying Atlassian technologies following the latest best practices, and gives the customer an internal resource at Atlassian to be an advocate across all functions and roles. For more details on how the TAM service is delivered, please reference the Atlassian Technical Account Manager Datasheet.
2. How do I purchase the TAM Service?
To inquire about subscribing to the TAM Service please Contact Us; or request a quote from your Atlassian Expert.
3. Where can I find the terms and conditions of the TAM Service?
The Atlassian TAM Service is governed by the Enterprise Support and Services Policy.
4. What is the difference between an Atlassian TAM and Atlassian Technical Support?
Atlassian Technical Support is a 'break-fix' incident based service where you file a specific support request regarding a point in time problem, and they assist you in resolving the issue. Atlassian TAM's are a proactive consultative resource focused on ensuring that you are deriving the appropriate ROI from your Atlassian investment. Atlassian TAMs ensure that you are defining an Atlassian technical solution that will address your business needs and architecting the solution with best practices and risk mitigation in mind.
5. Are TAMs an onsite consultative resource?
TAMs primarily function within the region where the customer's production management teams reside. TAMs visit onsite at the customer's location at least once a quarter, but spend the majority of their time providing remote guidance and working with their counterparts in Atlassian's offices to enable the end customer.
6. Can I engage a TAM that speaks my local language?
For certain countries where English is not the primary language, staffing of a local TAM resource is available who will speak the local language. Contact Us to inquire whether such a resource is currently available in your locale.
7. What is the difference between an Atlassian TAM and an Expert?
Atlassian Experts are in-depth and hands-on technology practitioners to help you deploy, manage and enhance your Atlassian solution deployments. Atlassian TAMs are a solution advisory resource that have direct weekly touch-points with Atlassian product, engineering, executive and support teams and give you an immediate advocate to the product teams at Atlassian, and keep you abreast of the latest product roadmap updates and internal thinking from within Atlassian to ensure that you and the Expert are following down the ideal solutions path.
8. As an Atlassian Expert can I sell the TAM Service to customers I am working with?
Atlassian Platinum and Enterprise Experts are qualified to sell the TAM Service. Experts within other non-enterprise tiers of Atlassian's Expert program will need to work with the regional Atlassian Expert Manager to qualify. For more details on the conditions of selling the TAM service, or to execute a TAM order, the Expert must qualify the customer as a TAM prospect via email@example.com.
