What are the best aspects of this product?
I met Kentico when I was attending a certification for SiteCore, trying to find a new CMS for my organization. A partner of Kentico mentioned to check it. When I did that, I discovered the best parts of SiteCore that convinced me to choose this CMS with a great hosting features so that I would not need to build myself such e-commerce suite. Since then, I have built 4 sites in it and it is my go to CMS for lots of my cases of consult I do outside my everyday work. It provides a great function and flexibility, a great partners and developer’s community and awesome support they will do their best to find the answer to help me. From the mundane question to the hard several-day debug problems, their support is awesome. It gives me the opportunity to distribute a solid experience with lots of features I do not need to create them by myself like SiteCore and a host of great friendly developer features in Kentico’s API and built-in macro language that make creating solutions on the platform a satisfaction. If you haven’t heard about Kentico while you were exploring CMS, you have certainly missed out a masterpiece and you should explore its copiousness.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
Newer versions could be little inconvenient, specifically the Kentico 8 version was hard. But this was expected as it was a crucial change to the CMS back end and front end features. I would also like to see Kentico to be affected with Microsoft ASP.NET MVC. They provide a solution, but this is a spot where you cannot move so quickly. Analytics engine should be better, compared to other CMS solutions so that customers can choose if they want Google Analytics to be displayed or not as in SiteFinity. Furthermore than this, Kentico is not a disappointing thing.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
We needed a CMS for my organization that could allow us to show articles and send newsletters in a genuine and easy way, including our very small team. We did not want something that lacks a team of developers, so we wanted a CMS that would be merciful for the people that were not very technical and the only thing they want is to produce content.
