Kentico 10: The Features and Functionality of the Latest Release

Posted by BlueModus News on January 17, 2017

Your web platform has just upgraded to a new release… so what should your organization do? Do you invest the time, effort and budget to upgrade your website, or do you give it a 'wait and see' approach? This dilemma has always been a challenging one for organizations, and with the recent release of Kentico 10, it's a common question that we here at BlueModus hear from many clients and partners.

In the case of Kentico, the newest release of Kentico 10 occurred late last year. With this upgrade comes a slew of new features and significant scalability upgrades to the market.
 
In the latest whitepaper from BlueModus, we cover the most recent release from Kentico in depth. You'll learn about what the platform has to offer, including:

 

Performance and Scalability Upgrades

Kentico 10 registers a 50% faster page load and response time of the entire Kentico environment.  Additionally, it provides a tenfold improvement over its predecessor in scalability, supportong more than 1 billion marketing activities and more than 100 million contacts.   

 

New Features & Capabilities

Updated platforms naturally contain numerous new features and Kentico 10 is no exception. Among the features of the release include:

  • Campaign Management Enhancements
  • Responsive Images Management
  • Context Tools
  • Campaign Journey Building
  • Email Marketing Improvements

Updated Technology

The updated technology of a WMS upgrade is the part that makes web developers salivate…or at least improves their ability to capably keep sites humming as they should.

Technology improvements of Kentico 10 include:

  • A full deployment of Continuous Integration, including the support of all object types, so that developers can quickly and easily move objects between environments.
  • A full implementation of Model View Controller (MVC). MVC is the fastest growing developer framework, allowing companies build more scalable, high performance websites. This upgrade provides a total separation of content, which supports a more future-friendly architecture.
 

Greater Security and Support

Kentico’s administrative tools in version 10 support all modern browsers, including tablet and mobile devices, an upgrade over older versions of the platform that provide limited support for newer browsers and devices.
 
Additionally, Kentico follows the standard industry practice of fully supporting the most recent three versions of its platform, so with this release, installations of Kentico 7 will now no longer be officially supported. Organizations running their website on Kentico 7 or lower need to weigh the risks of running an out-of-date and security-vulnerable site against the cost end effort of an upgrade.

So What's the Right Decision for your Organization?

There's no one-size-fits-all solution to the question of whether to upgrade. But a greater understanding of potential costs and benefits can help steer you in the right direction.
