Ektron and Discover iTech
Ektron was acquired by Accel-KKR and its product development resources were merged with Episerver, a sister portfolio company. Although Accel leadership has disputed the notion that Ektron is being sunset, the company has very publicly hitched its wagon to its other web-based CMS platform, Episerver, as the product for future platform generations. Accel’s selection of Episerver makes clear that there will not be any additional generations of the Ektron platform.
For organizations that have their site on Ektron a plan for the post-Ektron future is needed now. Below we’ve outlined seven important reasons to recommend an accelerated migration timeline away from Ektron and onto a more future ready CMS like Kentico, Sitecore, Drupal, WordPress, Sitefinity among others.
Development hours and resources are required for simple site additions or edits in Ektron that could be handled independent of the dev staff in better CMS platforms.
Ektron is not a pure ASP.NET implementation. It is a retrofitted legacy ASP implementation. New CMS apps will not work with Ektron without extensive customization.
Delaying the inevitable move from Ektron may expose an organization to undue, avoidable risk and cost. Now is the time to pick a new CMS.
