Progress Kendo UI

Kendo UI works well if developing web UI applications which have simple layout designs. - GoodA scenario where there are a lot of Kendo widgets on a single UI page, and each has a complex initialization. - Not so good

When there is the need to rapidly show data and/or build a nice UI without having to build your own stuff. Let's say one needs to have a complete dashboard about some business streams or other KPI intensive system. Designing and implementing everything from scratch will take a huge amount of time. And a steep learning curve. Dashboard platform will help cut down those two timelines.

Cons

Progress Kendo UI

  • Kendo UI is always moving forward and staying current with latest development trends. While that is beneficial, that can cause some issues when supporting customers (particularly government) that don't move their IT infrastructure along nearly as fast. A prime example is web font icons. Great and easy to use, but where Kendo UI utilizes web font icons as the sole means of displaying an icon, not all organizations (again, especially government) allow the use of these. There have been times where Kendo UI became unusable and we had to downgrade to a version a few years old. Makes continued payment for licenses sometimes feel wasted as we may not be able to always use the new releases
  • Kendo UI has a wonderful feedback system and they do indeed listen to the community. However, there do seem to be some instances where there is large support for a new feature/component and it never gets addressed. It is easy to understand that not all ideas are easy or even prudent to implement, but would be nice to see a better follow-up on ideas with a current status
  • Refreshing Kendo UI grids is simple, yet the standard API method causes the grid to return to the default state. We have many use cases where we would love to update the grid data but need current grid state (such as expanded detail rows, sorts, filters, etc) preserved after the grid is updated so that users do not have to perform grid actions again to return to the desired state.

  • The documentation. It lacks detail and real-world examples.
  • The theme support. It really could use some improvement in the easiness of customization
  • As always, there's room for improvement. Maybe allowing for a better experience in terms of mix and match data points on the graphs

Nothing better has come along. I'm always on the lookout for new UI libraries and I have tried most of them. Kendo has done a good job of keeping my business. They aren't perfect, but no one has done it better as far as I can tell. I'll keep a look out and my rating may change in the future if they get complacent.

The errors that we have detected were not of great importance and the online support provided a temporary solution until the next release.

I haven't had much interaction with the Kendo UI. The few tickets I raised were answered promptly. I am almost always better served by searching their knowledge base or various forums. One of the strength of the product is its popularity, which makes it easier to find support and answers to common questions.

Alternatives Considered

Progress Kendo UI

At the time of our product selection we identified better cross-browser compatibility and we estimated that turnaround for support was superior. At the time, the vendor had a higher positive feedback footprint among their user community.

Return on Investment

Progress Kendo UI

  • Kendo UI has saved us a ton of time in development.
  • We were able to get certain things to market faster due to the fact that we didn't have to piece multiple libraries together like is so common with modern web development.
  • Because of the price of the library, however, we have not been able to purchase upgrades every year.
