Kentico Scores Big in new Ars Logica Study of WCM Market

Earns Strong Performer rating; “No other enterprise CMS, e-commerce, and online marketing suite matches it for anything close to the price”

Bedford, New Hampshire, USA, April 3, 2018—Kentico Software, a fast growing provider of content management systems (CMS) with offices in Europe, Asia Pacific, and North America, has just received high marks from Ars Logica, a high-touch consulting and advisory firm based in Boston. The firm awarded Kentico a “strong performer” rating as it reviewed 15 leading Web Content Management (WCM) platforms.

“Kentico EMS 11 is a platform that demonstrates strong, even performance across all eight evaluative categories in the Compass Guides to WCM,” the report reads. “It proves particularly strong in Ease of Administration and Enterprise Tech Stack Leverage. While the product may not set the bar in any one category, it does so for overall value. No other enterprise CMS, e-commerce, and online marketing suite matches it for anything close to the price.”

The firm’s “Compass Guide” study looked at each WCM product from both the IT and general business user’s point of view. Kentico EMS scored 7 out of 10 or better in categories ranging from Scalability, Flexibility, and Ease of Administration to Content Marketing Tools and Momentum & Strategic Vision.

“We’ve been working very hard to attain this level of performance and ROI in our product,” explained Kentico’s Founder and CEO, Petr Palas. “Our most recent version of product, Kentico 11, was a watershed moment for us in many respects. Not only did it feature a long list of functional improvements such as GDPR compliance features and dramatically enhanced e-commerce capabilities, but also greater connectivity to the corporate technology stack.” Palas continued, “Kentico today is capable of powering digital marketing initiatives for the world’s largest corporations.”
