Phoenix's on Fire!


Ladies and gentlemen, it's finally here. The official list of features that won't be included in the next, MVC-Only, version of the Kentico solution—Kentico 2020, codename Phoenix. Discard the drafts—no need to send more emails asking about it. Sit back, relax, and read about the modules that will burn.

I've promised on my Twitter to get the infamous list together, and you know I'm the man of my words. Words that are almost always improvised and grammatically incorrect. But the end justifies the means.

Without further ado, let's light some fire, shall we?

Web analytics

At the moment, we plan to remove our web analytics' reports from the system and invest more into the native integration with Google Analytics. According to our research, there are some projects where our built-in analytics proved to be a pleasant benefit. However, the majority of respondents confirmed they massively use Google Analytics. With this fact in mind, we are keen to remove our Web analytics altogether.

We understand it's a significant functionality. Therefore, if you have a strong opinion about that, don't hesitate and write an email to productmanagement at

MVT and Search engines are features very likely to be omitted from the system as well. However, you can express your feelings about it via email or drop us a line in the comment section below.

There you have it, the naked truth about the upcoming cleanse in Kentico 2020. Do you agree with our decisions? Do you want to add more to our virtual bonfire or salvage any of the modules? There's still time to change our intentions. Speak now or forever hold your peace.
