Liferay Digital Experience Platform Review

API programming and asset publishing are the most important features.


What is most valuable?

API programming and asset publishing are the most important features.

What needs improvement?

Documentation is an issue and needs to be improved. Asset publishing can be a bit complicated, but once you have some running, it gets easier.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Liferay since 2012, starting with Liferay 6.1.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The earlier version, 6.1, had performance issues. These were solved from 6.2 and up.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not had any scalability issues so far. It is easy to cluster, if your application has a heavy load.

How is customer service and technical support?

I have never used technical support. The documentation online could be improved (https://dev.liferay.com/). The Liferay developer community is very active, useful, and responsive.

How was the initial setup?

Liferay is very quick and easy to set up, whether you are using the built-in database or an external database.

What other advice do I have?

I just say "go ahead" and try it out. It is very easy to install and you can have it running in a few minutes after downloading and extracting.
