Liferay Digital Experience Platform Valuable Features

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 secondary pages to manage the system. So it is very easy for the administrative user.  

It is very scalable. On one deployment, you can create several solutions. It can be a website, it can be a portal, it can be an internal portal or intranet, and it can be a supplier portal. You can create all these various solutions and more on that one platform.  

Customers like it because they do not have separate solutions for all their needs. It is not just for a website, for example. They have a platform that they can use for many use cases at the same time and learn one tool. It is very flexible in that way.  

We have done things like putting two user directories in the portal which would allow us to work with several user groups, different user populations, and different kinds of users. One can be an internal user, one can be a supplier, or one can be a business partner. It gave us a good solution for that.  

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. Deployment is not too hard. That is why I think the main advantage of this kind of system is manageability.

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 approval to be archived, the chief archivist can provide an opinion of whether the content is of preservation value or archival value. He puts a comment in the workflow.

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.

There's a lot of plugins. It's an enterprise-level solution that is ready to use almost immediately and users can immediately share and collaborate once they've installed the application.

It's one of the best platforms I've used.

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