We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are its integration capabilities and advanced marketing suite."
"I would say they have a modern, flexible, agile content management system."
"I think that it could be interesting to expand the eCommerce capabilities to the B2C sector."
"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."
"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."
"The solution is easy to install."
"The look and feel and the user interface are great."
"This product needs an out of the box Intranet/Extranet Solution."
"They don't have a lot of libraries, which is something that they can improve on."
"Social area and capabilities need improvement."
"It could have better built-in integration with a wider variety of extensions out-of-the-box."
"The integration and configuration need to be simplified."
"The documentation provided needs to be more detailed. It's sometimes hard to develop things because the documentation is so sparse."
"The plugins should be more affordable."
"The licensing fees are probably about $100,000 USD per year."
"It's an open-source structure. Other costs are for professional services to integrate Liferay to other existing systems."
"Licensing costs can be very expensive."
