Kentico Brings a New Independence to Marketers and Developers

Brand new drag-and-drop MVC page builder, MVC widgets, and smart online forms see Kentico 12 throwing off the restrictions frequently placed on marketers and developers through their interdependency

BEDFORD, N.H., Nov. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kentico Software, a fast-growing CMS vendor with offices in Europe, Asia Pacific, and North America, today announced Kentico 12. The company’s flagship product has been engineered with MVC freedom at its core, while still offering portal engine capabilities for die-hard fans. It is their first truly MVC-focused release, which sees the start of an impressive four-year release roadmap.

“Kentico has proved itself time and again to be the platform of choice for developers and marketers who have a need to deliver impressive projects that only a robust set of fully-integrated web content management, e-commerce, and online marketing functionalities can deliver,” stated Petr Palas, Founder and CEO.

Better Authoring Experience for Marketers
Today’s release features improvements that mean developers can set up and control widgets and layouts that give marketers the tools they need to create pages by themselves. “We wanted to disrupt the historical concept that content management systems are just playgrounds for developers with a built-in reliance on their know-how,” explained Karol Jarkovsky, Vice President of Product. “So by providing rich MVC widgets, marketers are taking back their freedom to create without constantly disturbing their developing colleagues. The result? Everyone can get on with their work and be more productive.”

MVC Takes Centre Stage
Jarkovsky adds, “The lifespan of digital projects tends to be long, and in order to make sure companies stay abreast with shifts on the technology landscape, it is necessary to incorporate the latest programming trends and techniques. The scalability that these organizations crave is delivered by ASP.NET and MVC. Extensibility and a customization model have been regular characteristics of Kentico. And in Kentico 12, this trend not only continues, but has expanded.”

Effective Scalable Online Presence— on a Small to Global Enterprise Level
“With the release of Kentico 12, we are continuing on our path to full MVC Core support. By giving developers and marketers the tools they need to produce astonishing results with less interdependency, we are addressing several concerns here: Those of more effective collaboration, and those of the freedom to create. The results we have already seen doing the beta-release program have confirmed that outstanding results come when people feel unrestricted in their creativity. Kentico continues to attract very innovative partners and end users, along with their projects.
