Kentico is changing and evolving

Kentico has never stood still and has always been pushing its technology stack forward to meet the needs of their global partner network and its customer base. Kentico MVC is, without doubt, the latest and greatest incarnation of Kentico’s Web Content Management and Online Marketing Platform. The new platform separates code and design from content, making it the most flexible and intuitive Kentico version to date. While still being able to meet your content, email marketing, eCommerce, and content personalisation needs. It also has added features such as GDPR and data protection capabilities.

Kentico Portal vs MVC


  • The ASP.NET Forms framework is slowly becoming obsolete
  • Harder maintenance and upgrades
  • Slower performance
  • Drag and drop interface


  • The MVC development model is future-ready
  • Easier maintenance and upgrades
  • Faster performance
  • Page builder's drag and drop, widget-based interface with better UX

Important Kentico dates to note

  • End of 2020 - Kentico will no longer develop on their legacy Portal Engine solution and use pure MVC web development for Kentico version 2020 onwards
  • 2021 - Kentico will not provide hotfixes or security updates for Portal Engine
  • 2023 - Kentico projects built on Portal Engine will no longer be supported by Kentico

These are critical points to consider when planning your build, rebuild or upgrade projects going forward.
