Kentico replatforming and upgrades

Since 2015, we've been harnessing Kentico's capabilities well beyond its core CMS functions.

Anastasia Medvedeva

Marketing Director

However, like any platform, Kentico requires timely upgrades.Outdated versions lose technical support, posing significant business risks, including security vulnerabilities and the absence of Kentico's support and rapid bug fixes. Upgrades offer new marketing tools, improved routing, and the latest .NET support, enhancing business operations and user experience.

Kentico Upgrade Process in Byteminds:

  • New Version Upgrade & Breaking Changes Resolution: we upgrade to the latest Kentico version, addressing any compatibility issues.
  • Feature Re-implementation: features no longer supported in the new Kentico version are re-implemented
  • Full Regression Testing: we ensure the upgraded system operates flawlessly across all functionalities.

How we perform a Kentico platform upgrade:

  1. Start with a free project audit to review code and CMS, outlining the migration path.
  2. Plan the content structure for MVC projects.
  3. Prepare for comprehensive regression testing.
  4. Update to the new Kentico version to resolve breaking changes.
  5. Re-implement features no longer supported, such as output cache and banner management.
  6. Migrate to new Kentico features, including tree-based routing and marketing automation.
  7. Conduct both automated and manual content and user migration.
  8. Perform regression and performance testing to compare the migrated version against the current one.
  9. Deploy to staging and production environments.
  10. Offer a 30-day warranty for bug fixes.

Replatforming to Kentico

During our work with Kentico, we have also completed several replatforming projects, transitioning from other CMS/DXP systems to the latests versions of Kentico. Why is replatforming important? There are several reasons:

  • To reduce costs,such as licensing or infrastructure expenses (for example,Moving from Sitecore or AEM)
  • To move away from legacy platforms (such as  Drupal or WordPress) that may no longer meet business needs.
  • To improve performance, especially when the current platform struggles with increased traffic or data volumes.

After replatforming, your project retains all its functionality and aesthetic appeal, and additionally, you will: 

  • Gain improved frontend performance and PageSpeed scores.
  • Migrate to a more cost-effective cloud hosting platform, enhancing overall efficiency and reducing operational costs.

Kentico replatforming steps at ByteMinds:

  1. Reimplementall features without altering their functionality.
  2. Update code to the modern Kentico & .NET versions.
  3. Migrate content from the older version.
  4. Potentially include hosting platform migration or code optimization.
  5. Conduct full regression testing.
