Why to upgrade to Kentico 11?


Are you wondering if it is wise to invest in upgrading to the latest version of Kentico 11? Here are some reasons why the transition is beneficial and what benefits this upgrade has.

Most Kentico clients pay an annual fee for technical support and access to upgrades and higher level of systems. Some regularly update their CMS solutions to the latest version and benefit from the upgrades that the new versions bring. Those who run CMS on old and unsupported versions may find that crossing over multiple versions at once will be more complex than expected.

Regular migration to the latest version is much easier and therefore cheaper than going through multiple versions of the system at once. Running the latest version will reduce security risk, increase efficiency, and increase your marketing and IT staffs’ satisfaction.

The latest Kentico 11 supported features enable your suppliers to streamline and improve the performance of your desired functionality and speed up bug fixes.
