Using input from its community, along with data aggregated from online sources and social networks, G2 assesses products and vendors using a framework called The Grid®.
This framework serves as the collective voice of software users, offering benchmarks for comparing products and analyzing market trends. Software vendors, including Kentico, are ranked based on their performance in Satisfaction and Market Presence as well as more specific criteria related to features and services.
How DXPs are assessed in the G2 Grid® Report
According to G2, digital experience platforms (DXPs) are “composed of an integrated set of core technologies that support the creation, management, and delivery of omnichannel digital experiences”.
They help organizations leverage customer data to orchestrate personalized experiences across multiple channels and touchpoints for every stage of the customer journey.
To be included in the G2 Grid® Report for Digital Experience Platforms (DXPs), a product must:
- Provide content management and media storage capabilities
- Enable rapid development of websites, portals, or applications
- Connect customer data with digital media through APIs
- Support personalized digital content based on customer data

A whopping 99% of users gave us 4- or 5-star reviews (compared to Sitecore’s 91% and Progress Sitefinity’s 83%). In fact, we beat Sitecore and Progress Sitefinity in every category related to satisfaction.
