What does this all mean?

If you’re like almost all Kentico customers, you’re wondering what to do about MVC. You’ve heard it’s a big deal. You know it’s the future. You’ve maybe even read about the benefits of moving your website development to it, but where do you even begin?

Choosing a technology for your projects is an important decision that can have monumental consequences. You want to give your clients the best solution possible, in the shortest amount of time, with the smallest of cost. And you need to make sure it’s all built using a sustainable, stable architecture that won’t need rebuilding in a year. 

Here’s a fact you may not know: MVC isn’t a new concept. It was created up in 1979, and many developers have long focused on using it for their applications. Nowadays, more and more organizations are realizing it’s a more scalable and sustainable methodology that has proven it can stand the test of time. And when it comes to technology, that means a lot! By selecting MVC for your Kentico sites, you’re investing in your future and ensuring your clients are getting the best platform possible.

Microsoft has made it no secret that their focus is MVC from here on out, which means adopting this development pattern will be essential to your business’s success. In addition, almost every new JavaScript and front-end technology is tuned specifically for the component-based approach, which means your sites will be able to take advantage of nearly any library or technique that comes around. This means more options for your developers, and the ability to build on your solutions in the future.

And it means that the platform won’t need to be rebuilt any time soon due to support ending for the underlying framework.

Why?

MVC is the new way to develop on the web and Kentico is taking the bull by its horns. K12 supports both old school and MVC and is a way to slide into the new world.

When?

It has already started with K12. We now have an opportunity to prepare for MVC only, meaning your current site may not be compatible with K13.

How?

There are many approaches to consider each different. Your approach would be the one that best supports your current situation and future roadmap.

Cost?
