Kentico

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.

Cons

Kentico

  • I think Kentico could make it easier to set up the staging environments. It took our IT team longer than expected to build out DEV --> TESTING --> QA --> PRODUCTION environments in Azure. But, when they were done it works better than we had hoped.
  • I'd suggest Kentico building in a block of consulting time into the purchase price to make implementation go faster.
  • I think Kentico needs to update its list of "qualified" partners on their website. We selected one from the list and it turned out to be a total train wreck and our next agency had to basically start over as the first agency made so many major errors like an infinite loop in the SQL database.

Since Kentico offers perpetual licenses the only additional cost is for support if I need it. Its pretty fantastic as many other CMS products charge annual license fees based on the number of servers it is deployed to or the number of content contributor logins which can get expensive fast

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.

Alternatives Considered

Kentico

Kentico is a lot easier, more fluent and slicker than these products. It is easy to setup, use and teach others, so content can be managed by multiple users without any special training or skills i.e coding. It is definitely a lot more expensive so you are paying for a premium service but if you are a large organization it is worth it.
