Contentful

Contentful is well suited for folks who want a simple, clean, easy-to-use interface for a JAVASCRIPT website. If you do not want a javascript website you should look [elsewhere].
Jennifer Garcia | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kontent by Kentico

Really easy integration to all of our services and apps. Delivery API libraries make the integration really fast. On the other hand, I miss the option to use SSO (Single Sign-On) with the Professional version of the Kentico Kontent. However, it is included in the Enterprise package.
Filip Conka | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pros

Contentful

  • Clean, modern interface (not clunky and outdated, like WordPress)
  • High degree of flexibility (I can structure data any way my clients need)
  • Enables headless frontend (i.e. I can build any frontend I want without having to change my CMS)
Andrew Folts | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kontent by Kentico

  • Management of multilingual content.
  • Content collaboration and control over the entire content lifecycle.
  • A well-documented delivery API and easy integration with any systems across the digital experience stack.

Cons

Contentful

  • The new Contentful "branches" feature looked promising (it appears to mirror a git-like repository) but it requires the CLI, which isn't necessarily practical for teams that aren't current CLI users. It would be nice if the management of this feature were available via the UI (without that it causes more confusion than anything).
  • The Contentful data modeling method makes for a bit of an awkward SDK developer experience in some strongly typed languages like Java. Most things that you might need can be accomplished, but it feels like the experience could be smoother.
  • It would be nice if there were a way to migrate data between spaces (e.g. from your staging space to production).

Kontent by Kentico

  • Offer a smaller subscription package for small projects.

Alternatives Considered

Contentful

Contentful offers a great deal of features for a relatively low price. This is what ended up persuading us to purchase it. We also gathered that this was one of the more well-rated products out there, which was encouraging. It definitely stacks up well against its competitors.
Nathan Richardson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kontent by Kentico

Unified access to the same content without the need to duplicate it across multiple solutions. We do not need to set up a complicated infrastructure to start using the Kentico Kontent.
Filip Conka | TrustRadius Reviewer

Return on Investment

Contentful

  • Positive: faster changes and new associates can easily navigate without prior training/knowledge of CMS to make content updates
  • Negative: Our website manager/provider can keep certain abilities (like changing specific images) so they can charge a fee for making the change
Nathaly Sierra | TrustRadius Reviewer

Kontent by Kentico

  • Highly positive ROI.
  • Shorten project delivery.
  • Single source of truth for all content.
