Kentico Audit and Performance Optimization

Utilize the full power and performance of Kentico with [A]’s comprehensive Kentico audit and performance optimization.

Kentico versions and tools evolve quickly offering new powerful features, however many organizations often leave the best Kentico tools and functionalities virtually untapped. Other times, uptime and performance problems indicate structural issues which need to be addressed.

When Kentico is not working optimally, [A] can help map and match the problems with solutions, identify opportunities and orchestrate a path forward.

Kentico has the power to meet most any content marketing objective, but that does not always actualize in our companies. Start by auditing the root causes and get recommendations that designed to improve systems and get results.

Requests for [A]’s Kentico Audit and Performance Tuning often originate from:

  • An IT organization overwhelmed with other priorities
  • An internal lack of expertise and training past the basics
  • Internal developers lacking experience with the platform
  • A development team unfamiliar with new Kentico features 
  • An internal team with really strong technologists who are not content engineers
  • An under-performing previous integrator leaving behind poor, incomplete or sloppy work
  • Business stakeholders demanding more than internal resources can do
  • Lack of available, organized, and effective Kentico talent

How [A] Helps

[A] helps organizations unlock the full power and potential of the Kentico platform with a detailed Kentico assessment and performance tuning analysis specific to each of our client’s unique needs, goals, and resources. Clients receive recommendations unique and tailored to specific circumstances.

Clients report an [A] audit delivers detailed, actionable, relevant insights that when acted upon ultimately pay for themselves in uptime, stability, efficiency, and improved utility across the Kentico platform and the systems it touches.

Kentico Audit            

Every organization's Kentico objectives are unique. [A]’s team of developers, engineers, and marketers begin each audit with an in-depth analysis of our client’s needs. This includes how Kentico is currently being used, as well as how the client plans to use it in the future.

Following this initial analysis, [A] performs a deep-dive into each Kentico implementation to assess the following Kentico performance measures:

Kentico Environment

[A]’s engineers review the server and network architecture of each Kentico implementation with the goal of ensuring that each site achieves the best level of performance, availability, and disaster recovery possible. Clients can also receive recommendations for improving architecture, load balancing, network infrastructure, disaster recovery, and content delivery network usage. 

Engineering Content Efficiency with Kentico

[A]’s Kentico and content engineers help clients understand and improve the nature of thier content and how it is expressed in data templates. We often reduce hundreds of data templates down to less than 20 while still allowing our clients to achieve the same business goals. Reducing unnecessary templates eliminates errors, improves authoring efficiency, and ultimately makes it easier to reuse and target content assets across channels and audience segments.  

Code Quality for Kentico

Our Kentico audit also includes a detailed analysis of the Kentico and ASP.NET code to ensure all best practices are being followed and the highest code quality and performance is in effect. Our developers review the code in each Kentico installation both manually and through automated tools to catch any quality issues.   

Integration with Kentico

Third-party integrations can seriously impact the performance and stability of a Kentico installation. Our audit includes an analysis of every Kentico integration to identity architecture, stability, and performance issues that can be slowing down or breaking essential functions within the site.

Kentico Performance

Poor performance issues with a Kentico implementation can impact core metrics and hinder businesses and organizations from achieving the most modest marketing goals. The [A]  Kentico audit also includes running a full diagnostic of Kentico installation to identify poor performance issues, including file compression, image sizes, many layers of caching, and many other factors.  

Optional Custom Measures

As optional scope to the audit, [A] can also audit factors such as Kentico-related security, content workflow and governance in Kentico, mobile application integration architecture and stability, content syndication and CDN analysis, a deep dive on Document Asset Management (DAM), chatbots integrations, content API provisioning, and other specialized factors that impact the content publishing lifecycle. Work on these definitions with the [A] team to determine which might best fit.
