Why this report?  

According to Forrester, technologies like agile CMS are solutions that “offer a collaborative environment for developers and practitioners, along with the tools that techies and creatives crave, as a more efficient means to deliver the right content to the right channel — at the right stage of the customer journey.” The evaluation assessed the vendors in this market based on their current offering, strategy, and market presence. The results bring a detailed overview of the current market and future trends. 

Why Kentico? Our take  

We’re happy to see Kentico Xperience DXP recognized in the Forrester Wave report. This product started as a simple CMS and evolved rapidly beyond this category. It transformed into a fully integrated digital platform with added capabilities including online marketing, personalization, and APIs. We believe that that’s how we gained our position among the Forrester’s Agile CMSes.  

The Forrester Wave report evaluates Xperience’s features and acknowledges our “large partner network and geographically diverse client base”. The report points out that: “Kentico Xperience offers capabilities on par with others in the market when it comes to its content repository and personalization capabilities. It also offers well-regarded community support for both developers and practitioners.” 

“I’m extremely pleased to see Kentico Xperience included among the most significant providers of Agile CMS in the Forrester report. It reassures us that our zeal for the best quality software and support shows itself in our product. We’re rapidly innovating so we can accelerate our customers’ success even more.” says Dominik Pintér, Managing Director of Kentico Xperience. 

Steering towards the future 

We’re looking forward to taking up future challenges when developing Kentico Xperience. The platform is now built on the latest .NET Core technology and getting ready for the cloud-first approach and SaaS offering. In tune with our vision, we’re accelerating the release cycles with frequent refreshes, so clients get new functionalities as soon as possible.   

“We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, and we’re committed to keep adding value to our client business at an increased pace. We’ll offer SaaS as another option to run Xperience and give clients free hands to focus on other activities. At the same time, we want to make business users’ lives easier by improving user experience and adding AI and machine learning to automate time-consuming tasks.” adds Matěj Štefaník, VP of Product Kentico Xperience.
