Developers can customize the standard platform using the Kentico open API and create their own modules, web parts, widgets, and other extensions needed for specific requirements and customize page templates, and documents. Kentico is compatible with Microsoft Azure so websites can be deployed directly from Microsoft Visual Studio onto the Microsoft Azure platform.
