Cloud-based headless content management system (CMS)

4.64/5 (11 reviews)

Kentico Kontent overview

What is Kentico Kontent?

Kentico Kontent is a headless content management system (CMS) that is designed for marketing and content developing teams in several industry segments, including agriculture, automotive, construction, consumer goods, education, healthcare, finance, manufacturing, retail, and hospitality. It helps organizations create web page templates, plan content development processes, and create custom workflows on a centralized platform.

Kentico Kontent's authoring and simultaneous editing tools allow team members to develop content and collaborate on projects. The content localization module lets staff members set up multiple country-specific default and fallback languages to automatically display created content in several local languages. It also enables content developers to define content types, categorize elements, configure content type limitations, reuse snippets, add images, create tables, and organize content according to predefined business guidelines.

Kentico Kontent provides an API, which allows businesses to integrate the system with several third-party solutions, such as Gridsome, Algolia, Google Analytics, Hubspot, and more. Administrators can set up role-based permission rights, schedule data backups, configure multi-factor authentication (MFA), and utilize single-sign on capabilities to ensure a secure user experience.

Switched from Umbraco to Kentico Kontent

Experience has been great. Technical documentation is good, and the example projects in various languages has been helpful.

Pros
Flexibility of content taxonomy, ease of implementation, speed of Delivery API, excellent tech support.

Cons
It is up to the client to determine how best to structure their content's taxonomy. There is a lot of flexibility in Kentico's Admin Portal, so some "best practices" and recommendations from Kentico would be helpful.

Headless CMS is critical to a modern digital platform

Used daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
Ease of integration with modern tech stacks, ability to use latest front-end frameworks such as React, Vue, Angular, etc. Easy integration with a variety of back-ends using their SDK - we have used the Javascript SDK to integrate into Node.js projects very effortlessly. The API is feature rich, for example: - you may set it to preview mode, to set up your staging & testing environments to preview draft content items - fine grain control which content workflow steps trigger webhooks to your server - use webhooks to easily integrate with services such as Elastic Cloud, Azure, translation services such as Google Translate / Amazon Translate

Cons
Kentico Kontent has improved dramatically over the past 12 months, it was already a very competitive headless CMS before, now after all of the recent updates I am confident to say that it is the best product on the market and is my default selection for greenfield projects.

Great support from the Kentico Kontent team is encouraging the team to put the platform as a genuine alternative to the traditional CMS route.

Pros
• The Kontent platform has now evolved into a production-ready system • There's strong support from Kentico sales department • Good technical support from Kentico development team including sample code available for multiple frontend frameworks • The Kontent team are ready to adapt and evolve products to client/agency needs • There's Great integration possibilities g • Good customisation is now possible of the CMS editor • Competitive pricing model with the other contenders in the marketplace

Cons
• The platform needs agencies/developers to re-train or employ additional frontend developers to deliver public site if they committed to the Kentico EMS platform for their business, essentially either are a cost to an agency • Deprecation of features in the past has left a nervousness over the platform (e.g. Draft CMS Import module, personalization engine) • The product is focussed at clients who have a specific project fit and knowledge of technology

Well, I started journey with them when they were a Kentico Cloud, and now with a stronger brand, Kentico Kontent is going better and better.

Pros
Architecture API oriented, ready to support Headless solutions right away. The way they design content authoring approach, with versions, content repository, and other makes Kentico Kontet a perfect solution for business content-oriented projects.

Cons
Everything that was strange to me before, they fixed or changed very quickly, so nothing at the moment :)

Pros
- Best support I have ever had, super competitive team, instant replies - Feedback is very welcomed. All the suggestions are noted, and reviewed by Kontent Team - Software Developers love this product. Its easy to use and has great SDK. Content models are abstract by itself, so you are not limited to anything. You can create your own blocks and use them the way you want. - Speeds up the product development and delivery - Image transformation API takes care of fitting the images to any screen resolution. - Ability to create custom form elements - Very elastic about workflow definition and has good granulation of access rights management. - Attractive free plan, comparing to other Headless Cloud CMS

Cons
- (As for 29.11.2019), I'm missing a mechanism for grouping content in directories so we can functionally separate top level content (for applications views/pages) from less crucial content. Because of that, developers often have to teach the end user where to start and how to use prepared models
