Gartner has published its Gartner Peer Insights “Voice of the Customer”: Digital Experience Platforms report. This document summarizes reviews and ratings in a period of 18 months from Gartner Peer Insights into insights for IT decision-makers. It recognizes eleven vendors, including Kentico Software with its Kentico Xperience platform. Vendors with the highest overall rating and user interest and adoption receive the Customers’ Choice distinction.  

Being based on 723 published reviews and ratings, this report represents very well Kentico’s determination to deliver on customers’ needs and provide an excellent level of support. Kentico scored a 4.6 rating from a maximum of 5.0 based on 74 reviews as of June 10, 2021, and 81% willingness to recommend. 

“Kentico has always been about the people more than anything else. Employees, partners, customers. Whatever we do, we do it with the people in our minds. We want to ease their jobs and simply make them happy. So, this recognition particularly warms our hearts. If our customers like the way we treat them, then I'm satisfied with our work,” said the CEO of Kentico Software Petr Palas.

“This appreciation could not have come at a better time. Just a week ago, we presented the Kentico Xperience strategy for the next fiscal year. And it is all about taking relationships with our customers even further. Kentico has always been a very open and friendly company. Many of our customers have been with us for more than 10 years. That's because we focus on building up a partnership with every customer and partner we have. And this report just reassured us that we are doing the right thing,” explained Managing Director of Kentico Xperience Dominik Pintér.

How Gartner defines Digital Experience Platforms? 

“Gartner defines a digital experience platform (DXP) as an integrated set of technologies, based on a common platform, that provides a broad range of audiences with consistent, secure, and personalized access to information and applications across many digital touchpoints. Organizations use DXPs to build, deploy and continually improve websites, portals, mobile, and other digital experiences. DXPs manage the presentation layer based on the role, security privileges, and preferences of an individual. They combine and coordinate applications, including content management, search and navigation, personalization, integration and aggregation, collaboration, workflow, analytics, and mobile and multichannel support.” 

What Is Gartner Peer Insights “Voice of the Customer”? 

“The “Voice of the Customer” is a document that synthesizes Gartner Peer Insights’ reviews into insights for IT decision-makers. This aggregated peer perspective, along with the individual detailed reviews, is complementary to Gartner’s expert research, and can play a key role in your buying process, as it focuses on direct peer experiences of implementing and operating a solution. In this document, only vendors with 20 or more eligible published reviews during the specified 18-month submission period are included in this document. Reviews from end-users of companies with less than $50M in revenue are excluded from this methodology. See the full “Voice of the Customer” methodology here.”
