Kentico vs SharePoint

Kentico is a market-leading corporate web content management system (CMS) based on ASP.Net MVC and SQL Server. For those who know SharePoint On-premises you can see some similarities in the technologies used.
It is no secret that SharePoint has guidelines that dissuade organizations from creating public sites, including the elimination of public Office365 sites. The SharePoint path is clearly seen in what is being done with M365. It is a wide variety of services that unite an organization using the Power Platform.

Kentico follows the focused path of a CMS developed for public websites. Understanding the changes and adapting to the power of the web, Kentico is a branded digital marketing and e-commerce powerhouse.

Kentico focuses on the experience of its website visitors and the ability to convert them into customers. Items such as forms, A / B tests, events and registration are part of the package. Kentico has been around since 2003 and has thousands of websites worldwide.


With Microsoft's focus on SharePoint in 365, Kentico is a fantastic complement in terms of public website software that can display SharePoint information dynamically and securely. Here is a key: it is bidirectional.

Kentico allows you to access data stored on a SharePoint server (Microsoft SharePoint 2010/2013/2016 / Online) and display it on your website. You can achieve this by setting up a SharePoint integration connection and placing the SharePoint web part, in combination with another web part displaying the content, on a selected page.

If your company already uses SharePoint and is considering a public website CMS system like Drupal, WordPress and the like, consider these factors:
  • Kentico has a very reasonable and transparent licensing structure
  • Kentico Support 24X7
  • Kentico is focused on usability and flexibility
