We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The feature I find most valuable is that Drupal is a framework and not only a CMS.We use a part of the solution called Acquia. The personalization portion of this is the most valuable aspect fo the solution.It is good for big projects.You can build websites on it very quickly.

The solution is easy to install.We chose Liferay because it is open-source and that we can make any number of users apply, register into the system and use the system, as opposed to other solutions where the cost is based on user licenses. This is one of the most attractive features.Manageability is very good and probably the most valuable part of a tool of this type. There is a little more of a learning curve than you have with a simple tool, but a business user can learn to manage the system as an administrator very easily.I think that it could be interesting to expand the eCommerce capabilities to the B2C sector.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.The web/mobile/portal integration was one of the features that we found most valuable, primarily because it reduced our development time.

Cons
I think the support needs to improve, as well as the integration with tracking and analytics systems.The user experience in designing layouts should be much easier or much more helpful.It is a little bit simplified.Digital experience features like target, segmentation, and campaign management have a long way to go.

The documentation provided needs to be more detailed. It's sometimes hard to develop things because the documentation is so sparse.The integration and configuration need to be simplified.It could have better built-in integration with a wider variety of extensions out-of-the-box.Social area and capabilities need improvement.It could be improved in terms of adding filters to some of the rules. Therefore, you can retain how long a document would need to stay in an archive.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I would like to see better pricing.

It's an open-source structure. Other costs are for professional services to integrate Liferay to other existing systems.It is a bit expensive.Their pricing model should be modified to include per user options instead of just servers/cores, etc.
