Kentico Weighs in on Open Source vs. Proprietary CMS Debate

Technical Evangelist Bryan Soltis Touts Benefits of Proprietary Approach on WCM Industry’s CMS-Connected Video News Program

Bedford, New Hampshire – July 27, 2015 – It’s a debate that has been going on for years, and one that’s not likely to be resolved anytime soon: Is it more advantageous for today’s companies to rely on an open source or proprietary content management system to manage their websites? Kentico Software, the Web Content and Customer Experience Management provider, recently dispatched  Technical Evangelist Bryan Soltis to the web-based CMS-Connected program where he discussed this very topic with Arje Cahn, Co-Founder and CTO of HIPPO, an open source CMS provider. Both men passionately defended their positions.

“There’s a place for proprietary and a place for open source,” stated Soltis. “The main difference between the two is that, in an enterprise setting, I don’t want to rely on a community to provide me with the answers. I want to go to the source, to the vendor who wrote the software, to solve my business problem. I’ve only found that kind of dedicated, high-level technical support in the proprietary space.”
