12 days to build in Kentico Cloud

BizStream had a long-lasting need to build a website for their own product, CaseStream. So, when Kentico announced their headless CMS, Kentico Cloud, our team saw a great opportunity to utilize this new platform. The website needed to be easy to edit while also compatible with ever changing technology. 

Building a New Product Website

As BizStream wanted to build a product website that is easy to edit while working with today's technology, they decided to use Kentico Cloud. The content editor had started with the content creation before the back-end developer even began building the site. A couple of days later, the team started preparing the design and front end using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. When building the website, BizStream's starting point was Kentico Cloud Boilerplate for ASP.NET Core MVC, which also helped to deliver the site extremely fast.


Leveraging a Content-first Approach

The BizStream team of three needed just 12 days to build the product website from scratch. Providing content before development even started was a surprise to the team and a big help.

Even though generating content for the website was the biggest challenge for BizStream, the team saved time by working with the reusable Modular Content. After all, the CaseStream website was BizStream's first project that had content ready before starting with back-end development.

Overall, our experience with Kentico Cloud has been a positive one. It has opened our eyes to a new methodology for creating fully editable websites with re-useable content. By leveraging a content-first approach, and thanks to the Kentico Cloud product, we can deliver projects at a very aggressive pace. We are encouraging our own clients to now practice this methodology in their projects.
