Victor De Lima Soares, M.S. says in a Liferay Digital Experience Platform review
Head Developer at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
The ability to control web content within a structured version system and its unique capability to receive extension modules and plugins. The extension power makes this software a great ally for building new systems. I usually see this platform as a Swiss Army Knife for building new features. I also see it as a starting point for assembling new systems from modules and apps, just like we do when playing with Lego blocks. Support for Java 8 and OSGi are also extremely attractive capabilities. View full review »

* Flexibility to fit our business requirements under many different scenarios, from simple public web sites to customer or distributor portal solutions and intranets. * As a J2EE and open source platform, this product allow us to extend its out-of-the-box features such as CMS, sites management, permissions, workflows, security system, mobile framework, etc. We can do this in a well-defined way by using custom plugins developed in Java with standard tools and J2EE specifications. * Full support for enterprise systems integrations. Liferay allows us to integrate with our company systems, for instance, IAM, EIP, Web Services. It creates custom plugins or uses the OOTB integrations, like Siteminder, LDAP, CAS, SAML, and Amazon S3. * Flexibility about the ecosystem, as you can choose between many configurations and products for Liferay installation. For example, Database (Oracle, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MSSQL Server), App Servers (Tomcat, JBoss, WebSphere, WebLogic), according to its certificated and supported compatibility matrix. View full review »

It allows us to arrange and develop new ideas, then incorporate them into the portal. We can create a one stop information center, so people can access the information from one window. It also allows us to actively receive data from different systems and publish it into the portal. View full review »

Kiel Frost says in an Acquia Cloud review
Digital Delivery Lead at a leisure / travel company with 10,001+ employees
Hosting support is the most valuable feature. Acquia provides a standard for the support and the incident requests. Their knowledge of Drupal as a CMS has enabled us to focus on developing business outcomes rather than focusing on the IT operations. Acquia has provided a resilient hosting infrastructure that allows our people to focus on delivering value to our customers. View full review »

It has a built-in WCMS (web content management system) and provides the ability to develop complex portlet-based web applications. That's valuable because it is Java/Java EE-based and open source. View full review »
Prakash Khanchandani says in a Liferay Digital Experience Platform review
Technical Lead at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
* Security: Authentication is just plug-and-play. Almost all types of mechanisms under the sun seem to be supported and a few could be used from a marketplace app. * Authorization: With roles and permission, it is very fine grained to the data-level. The best part is that it provides easy APIs to use for custom apps, the way we want it. * Themes: We can change practically anything of the look and feel of the portal. Customization is also pretty easy. The framework helps us to keep things separate from Liferay’s code base and yet achieve the desired results. * Sites, Page and Content Creation: This was a breeze. This was as if I were creating a Word file on my file system and writing content to the Word file. We used it heavily. Not only that, we could bring our content live with ease by embedding JavaScript. * Collaboration Features: Sharing and collaborating on Wikis and documents became much better by version 6.2, much to our relief. * Hooks: We did some heavy customizations. Most of the customizations were plug-and-play with hooks. This is a really handy feature for developers. * I have used other portals, but they don’t let you meddle with the portal. Liferay is different because it lets you do what you want to do with the portal. View full review »

The most loved Liferay DXP feature launched is modularity. The modular approach to implementation helps to add enhancements easily. The collaboration feature of Liferay is a very nice feature that can help to create a website quickly and easily, even by a non-technical person. Apart from these, I also like the security features provided by Liferay. View full review »
Senior Technology Specialist at a comms service provider with 10,001+ employees
The very first and important feature of Liferay is that it is open-source and can be extended as per the requirements. I would like to mention about the Hooks/Ext plugins that I have extensively used to adapt Liferay as the solution, in order to reach the business requirements. The document library, built-in Kaleo Workflow engine, and CMS (Content Management System) are very useful features. They can be modified/extended at any level. Overall, it provides easy scalability and integration with the third-party system/APIs like OAuth, social media, and Salesforce. In turn, it provides a great benefit by reducing development time and effort. View full review »
