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 feature of this solution is the set of security options that can be set when sharing files with a group. There is a lot of flexibility in that you can assign specific people read-only permissions. It can be done at the object level, or the folder level. The application is very… more»

What needs improvement?

Better integration with other solutions is needed. Some use cases require the user to integrate with a document management system, or they may want to do some sort of workflow management. For example, if they want to maintain an integrational ERP system then different departments may have different… more»

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

We use several other tools for content management such as Documentum, Alfresco, and SharePoint. The choice of tool depends on the use case.

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… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution offers a lot of features that are valuable. The security of it is very good. Integration within the solution is very good.

What needs improvement?

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. It would be helpful if Oracle could create some sort of facility to customize… more»

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

We use the tool for free in our country; the licensing policy is not accessible in Iran.

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

We did use SharePoint many years ago and have since switched over to Oracle. As we use many Oracle products, it was easy to integrate it into everything.

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… more»

What do you think of Microsoft Teams?

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 you think of Documentum?

What is our primary use case?

We use this for documentation management. It provides possibilities for us to save documents and supporting the business process while doing so. It helps us with some of the overflow of documents, and that is very important for our company.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us achieve enterprise content management. It is quite good.

What is most valuable?

It helps us with some of the overflow of documents, and that is very important for our company.

What needs improvement?

The biggest issue for us is the price of the product.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

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

It is quite an expensive product. The price is very high.
