What is most valuable?

I think that manageability is very good and probably the most valuable part of a tool of this type. You can manage pages and you can manage the layout of each webpage. You can create templates very easily — content templates or page templates — and you can manage these in one place. It is a page management area. You do not have to go into management areas separately, you do not have to go to… more»

What needs improvement?

If you want to do something more lightweight, the effort you need to put in initially might be a bit high for your purposes. The learning curve is too steep if you want to do something simple. It may be better to take something that is more intuitive out-of-the-box like WordPress, or some other very simple content management system. To use Liferay Digital to its potential, you need some skills… more»

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give to people considering this type of solution starts with the fact that we really like this platform and it has worked well for us. If you are a developer, you have a lot of options, services, APIs, and everything is open for your development because it is an open-source product. You can change what you need to. You can put in hooks and actually create the solution your… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the content manager, where you can configure events, the archival and preservation feature, and the workflow feature where before the document is scanned and awaiting… more»

What needs improvement?

The integration area needs to be improved. It needs to be more user-friendly. The integration and configuration need to be simplified. If for example, I had to configure the application to a payment… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's an open-source structure. The licensing cost was a one-off. Other costs are for professional services to integrate Liferay to other existing systems. Those are the main costs and also costs… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

As a national business portal, it is used as a content management solution and we have not used any other solution. For the archival and preservation system, we used an application called Saperion… more»

What other advice do I have?

With any application, the number one thing is to get the requirements-gathering stage done well, to identify your requirements to do your analysis properly. The requirements gathering needs to be very… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We knew of applications like Drupal, but we did some research through Google. We settled on Liferay because of it's open-source functionality and our end-user was keen on getting an open-source… more»

What is most valuable?

The web/mobile/portal integration was one of the features that we found most valuable, primarily because it reduced our development time.

How has it helped my organization?

Current management decided not to convert our student portal (Liferay 6.1) to Liferay DXP. Instead, we opted for an in-house developed solution coded with Java and Aurelia with centralized data libraries accessible via APIs, Web Services, etc. This provided our developers the unlimited ability to… more»

What needs improvement?

Since we did not implement the product, I do not have a suggestion for improvement.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Their pricing model should be modified to include per user options instead of just servers/cores, etc.

What do you think of Liferay Digital Experience Platform ?

What is most valuable?

I think that it could be interesting to expand the eCommerce capabilities to the B2C sector.

What needs improvement?

Social areas and capabilities need improvement. If you compare this product with Jive or other standard social business platforms, Liferay has room to improve in terms of reusability, functions, and capabilities. Jive and other leading social business company platforms all have a lot of add-ons. Liferay could add some social add-ons.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution for one year.

How was the initial setup?

Compared to other platforms the initial setup is not very complex.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution as eight out of ten.

What do you think of Liferay Digital Experience Platform ?

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs 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.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is a bit expensive.
