Kentico hosted one of their Fall 2017 Roadshow events in Chicago on October 26. High Monkey was represented by Chad Heinle (VP Consulting Services) and Joel Baglien (VP Business Solutions). In addition to getting the latest and greatest updates on the future direction of Kentico, the CMS / EMS version 11 launch, and Kentico Cloud, Chad and Joel made a presentation about the Kentico User Group.

The major updates:

Kentico version 11 is scheduled for launch on December 11 – just around the corner (so to speak). On December 6th, we sponsored a webinar demonstration of Kentico 11 by Kentico's very own Jessica MacRoberts. Watch it now on the Kentico User Group website to learn more about Kentico 11 features and updates.

Major features of version 11 include:

  •  Integration with the Ucommerce platform
  •  Integration with Azure Search
  • GDPR Security Integration (primarily impacts European companies and US companies doing business in Europe)
  • CRM Integrations with Salesforce, Dynamics, and Zoho
  •  Integration with Marketo
  •  Commitment to .NET MVC as a primary development framework

The Roadshow event included tracks for those interested in Kentico Cloud or those interested in the Kentico EMS followed by case study discussions and lots of opportunities for questions.

Attendance at the Chicago Roadshow was a mix of Kentico licensees and Kentico Partners. The event was held at the Mid-American Club on the 80th floor of the Aon Center in Chicago. The view was spectacular as evidenced by these photos:
