Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""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."

"We use WordPress on two different websites and it solves all of our website issues.""I like how it integrates graphics and words, and more generally, the way people can develop the choices of spaces for different websites."

Cons
"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.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice

Overview
Liferay Digital Experience Platform is an enterprise-grade platform that enables companies to create and connect personalized digital experiences across web, mobile, social, in store and other touchpoints. It provides the technical foundation (deep integration, security and modularity) for your digital business to orchestrate unique customer experiences, as well as business value features to support a deeper understanding of your customers.

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. WordPress is installed on a web server, which either is part of an Internet hosting service or is a network host itself; the first case may be on a service like WordPress.com, for example, and the second case is a computer running the software package WordPress.org. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system.
