As we’re heading into the new year, and looking forward to everything to come, it’s important to reflect over the significant milestones of this past year. We’re proud to see that we’re celebrating many wonderful achievements. Helping our customers tell their digital stories faster and more efficiently remained the main ingredient in the signature cocktail we’re toasting to the arrival of 2022 with. A dash of customer success, a drop of product growth, and a touch of future-proof enhancements—let’s see how we’ve mastered the DXP flavor in 2021!
Delivering stunning digital experiences with an award-winning unified DXP.
We’re definitely headed the right way and we’re delighted to see it! We’ve been true to our word to keep providing a powerful and reliable platform that helps our clients and partners deliver seamless digital experiences and excel at digital transformation. Paying attention to our customers’ valuable feedback, we keep evolving in a way that perfectly suits their needs.
Thanks to that, we’ve retained our position as an industry leader and been showered in fantastic awards that demonstrate it. Did you know that in 2021, Kentico Xperience:
- was included in Gartner Magic Quadrant for DXP,
- received the Gartner Customers’ Choice for DXP distinction badge (as one of only four vendors!)
- made it to The Forrester Wave™ for Agile CMS,
- and was recognized as a Leader in the G2 Grid® for Digital Experience Platforms (DXP) Software in Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter 2021, plus scored the amazing Users Love Us badge every time!
And being aware of our commitments, we’ve been, of course, investing in future-proofing our product (and intend to carry on doing so!). With the intention of bringing greater value to our customers faster, we’ve introduced a new way to release product updates! We said goodbye to the old model of big-bang product launches and adopted regular releases in the form of Refreshes. In 2021, we launched four of them—in March, June, September, and November—adding new improvements to Kentico Xperience 13, helping both marketers and developers.
Boosting business results together.
We wouldn’t, however, be celebrating all these shiny achievements if it wasn’t for the fantastic collaboration with our clients and partners pushing us forward. Therefore, you should know that it’s you—yes, YOU, (reading this right now)—who’s our main driving element. Our fantastic collaboration inspires us and truly brings the digital experience platform to life. And we’re beyond grateful for that!
There’s an immense number of outstanding websites out there, built on Kentico Xperience, with new ones turning up every day. To show our appreciation, we’ve once again awarded some of them in our annual Site of the Year contest! Make sure to check out the winners, but also some other successful product implementations, such as the one from NTI Limited, Andrews Federal Credit Union, Comet Group, and more.
A big round of applause also goes to our most valuable professionals, who’ve been so enthusiastically driving the Kentico Xperience community and helping others overcome their digital challenges. Finally, to support the cooperation with our valuable partners, we’ve modernized the Managed Cloud Hosting Partner Program, made some significant changes in the Partner Program, and released the new Kentico Xperience 13 Certified marketer exam and training course.
Kentico Xperience in numbers:
Digital transformation coming from within.
No mechanism works smoothly unless properly maintained. To secure a bright future, we’ve also made a few changes and updates within the company’s own lines. We announced a Managing Director for Kentico Xperience, upgraded our official website to Kentico Xperience 13 (including all the Refreshes), and we’ve shared some of our exciting plans for the future, e.g., the planned addition of an alternative deployment method—SaaS offering.
And even though the ongoing pandemic situation has been uncontrollably complicating everyone’s everyday life, we still managed to witness a few fantastic bonding moments. Be it when helping in the region of South Moravia (Czech Republic) after some of its villages have been devastated by a tornado, celebrating our 17th year together on our annual Summer Party, or planting new trees as a part of our initiative Trees for bugs.
We’ve also released many insightful resources that will help you navigate in the DXP jungle, speak more directly to your audiences, and convert more visitors to loyal customers. Make sure to read about:
- How to increase solution efficiency through understanding your digital experience maturity,
- How a well-implemented DXP will boost your business results,
- 10 Things to consider for your credit union’s CMS,
- Or learn How to achieve simplicity through a unified digital experience platform from the speech held at Gartner Marketing Symposium in September 2021.
Securing a stable digital future.
What’s on our plates in 2022? With so much success becoming commonplace, we’re generating a lot of excitement about what we are looking to achieve in the months ahead. To give you a little sneak peek, we can share that:
- you can expect the arrival of four more Refreshes, enhancing the capabilities of Kentico Xperience 13,
- another round of the virtual conference Kentico Xperience Connection will be held to update you on what’s new and planned in the world of DXP (check out how the previous year panned out),
