Kentico 9 Released with Integrated Campaign Management

December 11, 2015

Kentico Software has revealed the latest version of its CMS, E-commerce, and Online Marketing platform. Kentico 9

Founded in 2004, Kentico is an Enterprise Web Content Management System and Customer Experience Management solution, available as an on-premise or cloud solution.

Kentico 9 is a sizeable update, bringing about a long list of improvements from MVC support to Modularization. Let's take a closer look.

A Look at the New Features of Kentico 9

Kentico 9 moves the platform forward quite some bit. Here's a detailed fifteen minute introductory video to get the ball rolling.

Continuous Integration 

Continuous Integration means that new changes are published more efficiently than ever before thanks to continuous delivery. Kentico 9's new Continuous Integration Solution is designed to be easy to set up, reliable, and fully automated.

This reduces the need for manual deployment, allows for better and faster detection of integration problems, and helps reduce and even prevent errors and loss of data – all resulting in reduced development costs.

Integrated Campaign Management 

Brands are facing issues when it comes to creating, managing, and evaluating campaigns based on incoming data.

Kentico 9 enables such brands to do all of that from a single, unified control panel. The new reporting engine is accessible not only for campaign management, but also for email marketing.

ASP.NET Model View Controller (MVC Support)

MVC is the fastest growing developer framework, helping companies to build better performing, more scalable websites.

In recognition of this trend, Kentico 9 has embraced MVC to a much higher degree than ever before.

Improved Web Farm Support

Kentico 9 is optimized for cloud deployments. Improvements such as auto-scaling support are geared at simplifying every user's life.

The platform has been geared to respond to the environment as it scales up or down, minimizing the amount of administration that companies have to do in web farm scenarios.

Modularization

The final major upgrade comes in the form of modularization.

With Kentico 9, it's much easier to move code between modules, and move modules in between projects. This functionality had its beginnings in version 8, but it has been dramatically expanded in version 9.

Evolving & Delivering on Promises

Kentico's Technical Evangelist, Bryan Soltis, made some interesting remarks about how the product is evolving:

"Kentico 9 is evolving along with the .NET community and is a major step forward in terms of technology and capabilities.

The new release demonstrates that we're listening to our customers, to our partners – and even to those companies that aren't customers and partners – to see what features and capabilities they need and what obstacles remain in their way."

Kentico's CEO, Petr Palas, on the other hand, spoke of how Kentico is keeping its promises:

"There are only a handful of vendors who offer customers the full range of capabilities, from CMS through E-commerce to Online Marketing. There are even fewer who can deliver on that promise. Kentico is one of those companies."

Kentico 9 Announced

December 08, 2015

Kentico Software, a pprovider of content management systems, has just introduced the latest version of its CMS, E-commerce, and Online Marketing platform. Kentico 9 ­- unveiled at the company's Connection User and Partner Conference in Brno -- features a long list of improvements and it's already drawing rave reviews from early adopters.

Designed to be easy to set up, reliable, and fully automated, Continuous Integration means that new changes are published more efficiently. It provides for continuous delivery, reduces the need for manual deployment, allows for better and faster detection of integration problems, and helps reduce and even prevent errors and loss of data - all resulting in reduced development costs.

Companies no longer have a problem collecting data. Rather, they're dealing with an abundance of data. The new challenge is making sense of that data and acting upon it. That means creating, managing, and evaluating campaigns based on incoming data. With Kentico 9, you can do all of that from a single, unified control panel. The new reporting engine is accessible not only for campaign management, but also for email marketing.

MVC is the fastest growing developer framework, helping companies to build better performing, more scalable websites. That's why Kentico 9 embraces MVC to a much higher degree

Kentico 9 is optimized for cloud deployments. Improvements such as auto-scaling support are geared at simplifying everyone's life, automating the process so that you don't have to worry about it. The bottom line is that the system responds to the environment as you scale up or down, minimizing the amount of administration that companies have to do in web farm scenarios.

With Kentico 9, it's much easier to move code between modules, and move modules in between projects. This functionality had its beginnings in version 8, but it has been dramatically expanded in version 9.

December 01, 2015

The EContent 100 List of Companies that Matter Most in the Digital Content Industry is now in its 15th year, and big changes have been afoot. We added new judges, new categories, and as a result, we've got many new companies on the list.

If you have recently searched for a new digital marketing platform to work with, you'll know that narrowing this field down isn't easy.

We also decided that it was high time we gave technologies that help content providers cope in the global market their due. So we added the Globalization and Localization category. The importance of tailoring your content to global audiences is growing, and this year's list reflects that. As always, the EContent 100 represents the most important companies in the digital content industries, but it also reflects the trends in the industry that will be integral to success in the digital content industry in the coming year.  

For more on industry trends, be sure to read the commentaries from our industry experts and practitioners, and to stay tuned for the 2016 EContent Sourcebook, which takees deep dives into multiple aspects of the industry and tells you what you need to know for the coming year.
