An extremely flexible platform with an excellent SDK and surrounding community

What do you like best?

I have been working on the Liferay platform as a Java developer for several years now both in my full time job and as an open source contributor. I like Liferay above all other platforms because of it's flexibility and extensible. Liferay has done a great job providing a solid platform (complete with a strong SDK surrounding users, account management, social integration API's, communication API's, etc) while not restricting the developer or owner in any way..

What do you dislike?

Because of Liferay is very extensible there is a strong learning curve. This is not a bad thing, but the worst thing about the platform (and this can be said for any large platform) is that some of the integrations points are drastically under documented. As a resulted it takes years to truly become a SME and at a certain level you are essentially going to be inventing the wheel

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Liferay in conjunction with a BPMN system as a business process management platform. We also extensively use the document library as a document data store (currently have over 3 million large design files in there). The design file automation we build using document library extensions is very neat.

A nice application to improve the customer experience. the customers are the most important

What do you like best?

I really like the interface of this application is easy to navigate in it.

I like most about this app is that I help my company to improve the quality of service we offered to our customers through indicators that we managed to adjust on time.

What do you dislike?

the technical support of the service can improve.

what I do not like very much is that it does not offer a very complete free version, as all software on the market should offer a more complete trial version for complex tests.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it for all companies that have problems to measure the quality of service they are offering their users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this application I managed to improve the response time of the company and customers now feel more supported by our services

What Web Content Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Liferay DXP

What do you like best?

Liferay DXP improves on the already strong platform we've had with Liferay EE 6. It is very easy to use but offers a ton of powerful features, great integration with existing and proven technologies and is easily extended if needed. We are in the process of upgrading now and are looking forward to continuing with Liferay for the forseeable future.

What do you dislike?

We had a problem with a custom stylesheet based on the delivered style that was causing a lot of problems for mobile users and any platform with a touchscreen device. It took several months to solve, although to Liferay's credit they hung with is and worked though the issues and were able to deliver a patchset just for us that addressed and corrected the problem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it as a single sign on platform for our entire enterprise as well as the distribution center for everything from electronic forms to employee and student information, directory services, streaming media and a number of other things.

Best CMS Portal

What do you like best?

It is a quite good product, I am using Liferay since 4 years and i implemented several solutions for several customers now.I like installation of Liferay is also pretty easy, Just we can download zip and unzip it than use.

The most liking thing is it is an opensource so that we can customize up to our extent and requirement. Themes are very powerful so that we can change lot of UI stuff and most impressive for user to see.By hooks we can change lot of default behaviour.Multi site web application with administrator delegated is awesome one in Liferay

What do you dislike?

The biggest caveat is documentation. It's getting better, but it is still difficult to find info on lots of things. Technically still it is some what lagging providing secure transaction. There is potential conflict in third party library versions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you really want Web2.0 tools by default,Need of CMS and User management go for Liferay. It is really awesome open source portal and you will get best support from Liferay and Forum people

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrate information,people and processes are with in organization boundaries in a hierarchy level. By using CMS like AssetPublisher and WebContent we can give best solutions easily for creating multiple email templates and if we update the content of email template than we no need to change any code or properties. we have best user managament by providing hierarchies through organizations and sites

Good Open Source Portal with Good Integrations

What do you like best?

It's open source portal and comes with lot of out of box portlets.

Documentation is very good from Liferay 6.2.

It has very large community.

It comes with CMS tools also it let's you to integrate alfresco.

It provides SSO integration like LDAP, CAS.

It has great flexibility to organize Users, Roles, Sites.

It allows you to create website in minutes.

What do you dislike?

Developers need to have good skills which increases cost.

Few resources are available.

You have to purchase the license for enterprise edition which gives extra features as well as support.

Documentation still can be improved, it's difficult to do some things which should be easily achieved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If any body want to build portal with CMS and User Management you can really consider this.

But you should keep in mind that human resources costs are high.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I created CMS websites for my clients as well built products around it's multi tenancy architecture.
