In the popular “CMS Fight Club” October 2010 poll Falcon-Software asked certified WCM developers, partners and end-users that have purchased and deployed both Kentico and Ektron for their direct comparisons. Kentico won over Ektron in both – developer’s and end-user’s polls by ten points. The results of the poll came down to Kentico being commented as a more stable product, and providing a better overall end-user/developer experience.
“One of the most routinely requested CMS queries Falcon-Software receives from clientele during the critical project due-diligence stage is what’s the difference between the top .NET WCM vendors and which one is the best fit for our organization? Well, after compiling numerous matrix comparisons over the years we thought it would be a good idea to start sharing that knowledge on our blog site visitors.” said Gary Eisenstein, President & Founder of Falcon-Software Company, Inc.
“We began, by solicited several of the top certified developers and WCM end-users from across North America to help us dig deep behind the scenes to uncover vendor support performance, coding quality, return on investment value, end-user feedback and much more. We then set out to poll our blog site visitors and industry associates, asking them which matchups they would like to see the most. Shortly thereafter, a 6-month schedule was set in place for what has been coined “The CMS Fight Club”.” Gary Eisenstein adds.
“This is a great example of Kentico’s continuing commitment to our developers and end users to provide a productive, high quality and consistent WCMS experience” Says Eric Webb, President of Sales and operations for North America, “This shows how our customers perceive our product. We look forward to continuing to follow this series and finding ways that we can improve our product.”
