Sitefinity

Pros
  • It makes easy for an administrator to assign roles for others in the organization to contribute content.
  • It is also quite easy for administrators to know when new content has been created and is ready to be reviewed and approved.
  • Sitefinity CMS’s licensed model makes it very affordable for a small and medium-sized business to adopt the platform.
  • They always continue to update the platform with new features.
Cons
  • Well, it doesn't go well with Chrome. Some vendor only uses chrome as their default browser, but there are so many things that don't work in Chrome that are no longer been used.
  • Sitefinity doesn’t have an in-text editor. On small updates, it would be nice to click an edit button on a page and either fix it right there or at least use that button to open that page in Sitefinity.
  • Everybody hates when they are editing a page, finish, and go back into the Pages menu and the menu that they were working on is closed, or a different one is open. It’s kind of frustrating.

Kentico

Pros
  • The intuitive top is quite intriguing and left navigation within the content management platform. Anyone can easily find what section, sub-section, and the page they are looking to edit.
  • For creating content, the WYSIWYG editor is so intuitive which gives a feeling like working in MS Word.
  • The tab for adding metadata in simple fields takes away the headache of having to hunt and peck through code to add H1 tag, page description etc.
  • The image library is easy to edit and manage.
Cons
  • Kentico needs to invest in more enterprise-class environment management utilities.
  • The Kentico staging module could be improved to support the concept of bundled releases. Current staging module functionality is good but could be improved.
  • Kentico e-commerce support is a touch immature. While content management is superb but lags when compared to many open source e-commerce engines.
  • Kentico lacks MVC support. 99% of the time this isn't an issue for the end-user or business user but can be a hurdle for technology teams depending on the team's makeup.
