Full-featured unified platform with good scaling options

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this product is as a portal. This includes B2B portals, B2C portals, and B2E portals. It is good for any of those use cases. We have some solutions which include all three of these portal types in one deployment. It has the capability of providing good functionality for these portal types in a variety of ways. If you just need a marketing website, I'm not sure that you need a solution like Liferay Digital. You can just use WordPress which will serve your purpose in most cases. But if you need a website that has user authentication and you want to have additional… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "It could have better built-in integration with a wider variety of extensions out-of-the-box."

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 customer would like, or your manager, or whatever the person or the organization you are working for. It provides a very easy way to work and very easy to maintain and manage solutions. If you need…

A simple end-user experience that offers good options for access control

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use Box for sharing files within our group.

Pros and Cons

  • "The application is very light in terms of uploading and downloading files."
  • "Better integration with other solutions is needed."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this type of solution is to first formulate the use case. Box has certain limitations, but it is very plain and easy to use. If you need collaboration in terms of document management then it provides a simple interface that offers differing levels of granularity in terms of access control. This is a good solution but it does not address all of the use cases for a content management system. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Good integration capabilities and good security but needs to allow for easier template customization

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this solution as we use multiple Oracle products, and it's easy to integrate it in with the others.

Pros and Cons

  • "Integration within the solution is very good."
  • "The solution should be offered in Persian. Right now, our version is in English, and there's a bit of a language barrier between the users and the product."

What other advice do I have?

Due to the sanctions within our country, we only have access to on-premises deployment models. The system is very customizable and we have plans to integrate it with our finance and inventory systems as well. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I believe the solution is one of the best tools in the world.

Secure document storage that is stable, has good support, and good search capabilities

What is our primary use case?

Most of the solutions that we get are to be built on top of the platform. The platform can't be leveraged as it is. Most of the applications are customized applications that follow a particular life cycle workflow. We build custom solutions on top of SharePoint, Documentum, and Adobe. We build applications for a lot of government organizations. The content gets captured by a customized portal, which is written in Java, then the documents get generated via the Adobe and then get published and stored onto Documentum.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features of this solution are the security, storage, and document search capability."
  • "An area that needs to improve is how to reduce storage space on the AWS site."

What other advice do I have?

I would always recommend this solution and rate it an eight out of ten.

Excellent chat functionality with good stability but there are issues with synchronization

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for communication within our function teams. We use it for project organization, etc.

What is most valuable?

The chat functionality is the solution's most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

We occasionally have issues with synchronization between different dates. This aspect of stability needs improvement. The solution could be better integrated with SharePoint and have better workflows especially for writing drafts for review and release. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for one month.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is largely stable, but we do face issues around synchronization between different devices.

What do I think about the
