    DNN Platform

    DNN [Platform] is great for organizations of any size who wish to have a robust CMS to manage their site. DNN is not ideal for a small site that is better suited to a super easy to user interface such as Wix. DNN [Platform] is plenty strong enough for enterprises and large entities.

    Kentico is a robust and flexible CMS platform that is great for managing multiple websites and multiple environments (dev, stage, and production for instance). It makes content management very easy and makes it easy to keep the environments synced with the same content.However, the Kentico CMS does require a bit more technical understanding to get it set up properly and requires a bit more effort and support than, say, free open-source options.

    Pros

    DNN Platform

    • Very easy to use CMS - Ease of use is paramount with CMS products to minimise on support calls. Also the template structure of pages ensures that content editors cannot inadvertently corrupt the layout of the page.
    • Powerful application framework - The existence of APIs for all functionality within the CMS provides limitless scope in terms of developing bespoke applications which sit within the CMS.
    • Commercially supported option available - For larger clients, the comfort factor of having a direct line to the developers of the application is a big selling point.

    Kentico Xperience

    • I love the intuitive top and left navigation within the content management platform. I can easily find what section, sub-section, and page I'm looking to edit
    • For creating content, the WYSIWYG editor is so intuitive; it feels like you're working on an MS Word doc!
    • The tab for adding metadata in simple fields takes away the headache of having to hunt and peck through code to add H1 tag, page description etc.
    • The image library is easy to edit and manage

    Cons

    DNN Platform

    • Out of the box, it has some modules, but not enough unless you do a paid version.
    • The support is a bit slow.
    • The menuing can be confusing and terms used a bit strange. which makes training difficult.
    John Reitz | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Kentico Xperience

    • Kentico needs to invest in more enterprise class environment management utilities -- example: global CDN support via the CMS is sorely lacking. There are work-arounds, but it should be more elegant.
    • The Kentico staging module could be improved to support the concept of bundled releases. Current staging module functionality is good, but could be improved.
    • Kentico ecommerce support is a touch immature. While content management is superb, Kentico lags in this area when compared to many open source ecommerce engines.
    • Kentico is lacking MVC support. 99% of the time this isn't an issue for the end-user or business user, but can be a hurdle for technology teams depending on the team's makeup.

    We are locked into Kentico for the long haul. It provides us with an easy and flexible solution for a very non technical company to create a site and have the features they want, especially with the inclusion of EMS into our license. Now we have a true platform to build and grow our solutions.

    It seriously is one of the best interfaces I have ever used. I also love the fact that I can use UI personalization to secure any functionality by user or role that I don't want that role to have access to. The best part is the customization of the UI, I can add in any button, tab, or menu item I want through it, no code required.

    Their support staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and will work with you until your issue is fixed. This could take a few phone calls back and forth, but they are very diligent in helping you.

    The system provides many opportunities to integrate and enhance the platform and makes it easy to do so.

    Alternatives Considered

    DNN Platform

    My experience with Joomla! was over six years ago so a lot could have changed. However, I prefer DNN over Joomla because DNN offers more modules and a better administration user interface.
    Mike Bunce | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Kentico Xperience

    I've used Sitecore, Ektron, Joomla!, WordPress, and SharePoint (if you want to count that as a competitor for CMS). Kentico 8 blows them all out of the water. Nothing is more intuitive in the way that content is created, the way the site is setup, and how efficient rollouts can be with Content Staging.

    Return on Investment

    DNN Platform

    • DNN helps us win bids on projects through the improvements the community has done over the past few years; we were ready to scrap it all together but it has made great strides
    • DNN's community has come back and is actively working to improve and expand the capabilities of the cms
    • on a negative note, the confusion between evoq and dnn has caused us headaches

    Kentico Xperience

    • Kentico has enabled faster speed to market for SMEs. They are empowered to enter content them selves while still having that content go through editorial review to ensure tone of voice and brand are maintained.
    • Deploying Kentico has freed up web developer resources from manual content entry enabling them to build more useful solutions to support the business efforts
    • Tapping into the Kentico event pipelne allows us to trigger external system events when product content is published.
