Better authoring experience to empower marketers.  

In the past, content management systems have often been known for providing an interface that only engineers can love. As more marketers adopt these platforms, there is now expectations that systems need to be more intuitive, straightforward, and easy to use. To truly empower marketers to be successful and achieve their goals, Content Management Systems need to provide an authoring experience similar to those in other enterprise platforms, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and so on.

In Kentico 12, we are planning to focus on delivering an incredible authoring experience that will enable marketers to transform the way they work with the content. Through an intuitive, clean, and consistent authoring interface, the next version of Kentico will allow quick actions to be completed, without going through too many steps before performing a task. By reducing training and on-boarding time, Kentico 12 will lead to increased productivity and efficiency.

It's all about MVC and .NET Core.

As digital projects continue to live on for years, organizations need to adapt to new programming techniques and skills to keep up with the changes in technology. ASP.NET Core and MVC has become the go-to solution for web applications, offering companies an efficient and scalable architecture for their projects. MVC enables a truly agile development experience. This widely used methodology provides a pattern-based architecture to build dynamic websites that enable a clean separation of concerns, while give developers full control over the final markup.

Kentico has been always strong in providing extensibility and a customization model. This pattern has enabled developers to adapt their applications to changing needs. With Kentico 12, we are going down the path to natively support ASP.NET Core MVC application development. Having a pipeline and event-driven architecture provides a lot of options for overriding the platform. In Kentico 12, this is only going to be extended with a new ASP.NET MVC component-based development model that will allow a new wave of MVC project development on the platform.

Please refer to the roadmap below for more details.

In development Research: Enabling ASP.NET MVC Core development

This is a very important first step on our way to support ASP.NET Core MVC application development on Kentico platform. We are going to conduct research to identify the parts of the architecture that need to be transitioned first to enable ASP.NET Core MVC app development. We expect to use the gathered information to prepare a set of best practices on how the .NET Core MVC app development can be conducted with the current state of architecture. Moreover, this information will be used to identify the next steps of the transition.

Milestone #2

In planning until March 27th, 2018.
In development from March 28th, 2018 to June 19th, 2018.
