I'm on a project with 2 phases:
Build a bank of information and services (called BIS), all related to life events.
Build an internet portal that will use the BIS and others corporate systems to help the clients to answer their needs, to inform them, to guide them.
The first one is really a data based system. On one side there is a list of clients "needs" (or life events), and on the other side there are corporate services and informations.
The idea is to link (one to many) to a "need" the related informations and services in ordre deliver "on a plate" the complete answer to the "life event" , or the need. The "needs" can be expressed in different ways to maximize the odds that the client will find out his need as expressed by him.
We have to manage all that, keeping track of who does what and when, send notifications when an information is about to become obsolete, no longer publish it if it becomes obsolete, reset the life expectancy of the information when reviewed. We also have to manage the rights : who can create, approve, modify, read "needs", informations, and services. And more...
The second phase is a "normal" web portal, something that can easily be built with Kentico or others CMS.
I was to have the BIS built independently over a database management system, and use a CMS for the second phase. For me it was not possible to build both using the same tool. I then had a flash...What about Kentico ?
In a previous life, a long time ago, I used to have a city web site built with Kentico, and even if we were not using all the features, I noticed at the time that it looked very powerful.
Therefore, after this long prelude, do you think that Kentico can be the total solution to my requirements ?
Thanks for your guidance and opinions,
