Overall Satisfaction with Kendo UI

We are implementing Kendo UI for our main web products since we've been working with WebForm and implementing Kendo UI Ajax was the best option. Currently, it is being used only by the IT department. We needed to upgrade our applications in a way that would be cost-efficient and fast. Kendo UI help with that transition.

Pros

  • Fast and reliable. Kendo UI is a powerful tool that accelerates development time. It is widely tested and not difficult to implement on current projects.
  • Theming is really well provided by Kendo UI without being obtrusive with your own styles.
  • Telerik is focused on new businesses and they pull resources to develop new products and bring new features with Kendo UI.

Cons

  • We would like better Telerik reporting integration for Kendo UI, especially when client and back-end are in separate domains.
  • Development time has been severely reduced which is always a huge advantage for ROI.
Telerik ASP.NET controls have a significant advantage over DevExpress -- automated web tests, rich API for testing web pages containing Telerik controls. Telerik also has less strict license terms: - Telerik software is licensed on a per-seat basis - DevExpress software is licensed on a per-developer basis (personal) without permission to hand over the license to other developers.
There is always a scenario where the development needs to go faster. With Kendo UI you don't only go faster but also better. The price is a bit high so I would only recommend in cases that development time is more appreciated than budget.
