Overall Satisfaction with Kendo UI

Kendo UI is being used to standardize a department's internal UI framework in my organization. We chose it to minimize the amount of time wasted searching online for solutions to standard UI component problems. The goal is to keep engineers focused on solving problems that our customers care about and reduce as much as we can the time we spend maintaining an internal component library.

Pros

  • Charts.
  • Cross platform UI components.

Cons

  • Integrating new core UI features into the SPA specific libs.
  • Formatting of PDF exports.
  • Reduced time spent on UI bugs.
  • Reduced time spent choosing what to depend on.
We honestly didn't look at very many others, we asked other people who work on similar tasks in the area and made our selection based off of their recommendations of Telerik and our experience using the open-source components for a trial. When Telerik/Kendo got the job done well enough there wasn't a strong desire to go further.
When you're looking to just ship data visualizations and web forms Kendo can greatly reduce your time to implement and get rid of time spent analyzing other open-source options. It also allows you to start with a base set of free functionality to evaluate the product and only buy as you need more advanced features.
