Agility CMS

Agility is well suited for companies that want a balance of control and support. For major global site updates, these can be handled by Agility's support team, while minimal changes and updates can be performed autonomously by the company's own staff with ease. For companies that are interested in flexibility to reconstruct site structure or major global facelifts, Agility is less ideal because these changes must be handled and paid for through Agility support.

Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP)

Liferay Portal is a framework which comes with a fine grained security/permission model, (Web) Content Management, Authentication and Authorization, outbox portlets with different features to manage content or users. So if any business application has below questions then I can recommend not to use Liferay as a platform.
  • Application is big but not content or user driven.
  • Application with few static contents.
  • Application with batch transactions(DB) i.e. insert , update db records in batch.
  • Application with ERP capabilities.
  • Application with Big Data support.

Pros

  • File management within the CMS is extremely helpful as a hosting/uploading tool local to our web pages and content.
  • Ability to clone web page content across mutli-language websites takes only a few clicks, and translation can be performed easily based on default English content.
  • Ability to post shared content and link content to categories for easy organization of content on the web - post once, and serve the content up on the live site in multiple places.

  • OpenSource: Liferay is open source portal framework so developers can easily extend or customize it for their organization or department based on their requirement.
  • OutOfBox: Liferay Portal is not only a portal platform. It also provides a 60+ applications and tools included in the form of portlets. These portlets are available out of the box or in the form of plugins.
  • MarketPlace: Liferay has it own market place (i.e app store) where developer or contributors are contributing their ideas (application) so community can use it freely (some are paid).
  • Enterprise-Ready Portal Solution: It is fully ready to support mission-critical, enterprise applications in an environment configured for multiple redundancies and 24/7 up-times.
  • High Availability and High Performance: Liferay Portal has been tested to support more than 3,000 concurrent transactions (33,000 simultaneous users) on a single 8-core application server, with mean login times under one second and maximum ½ throughput of 79+ logins per second. Liferay Portal has proven to handle millions of page views and over 1.3 million users.
  • Liferay Portal is also deployable to the Cloud and virtual server environments and ensures high availability and performance with: Hardware/Software Load Balancing, HTTP Failover, Session Replication
  • Distributed Cache using Lightweight Multicast Protocol
  • Terracotta, Oracle RAC, and other scalability solutions

Cons

  • Simplification of uploading files would be ideal - where all files are located in the Media & Documents section rather than uploaded directly to Shared Content modules. One home for all files helps us keep track of what is uploaded and what is not.
  • Better copy/paste handling of content from external programs (cleaning Word document formatting, etc.), similar to handling by Word Press and other simplified CMS would be helpful.
  • Greater control over global content such as headers/footers, multi-language implementation, etc., would allow our developers more flexibility and reduce our time coordinating with Agility support and using BOH.

  • Portal Security: It has good security model but in few areas it requires improvement.
  • Encrypt LDAP passwords on import
  • Log in should be via SSL by default
  • Upgrade/patch process should include an alert in the control panel
  • Add virus scan for uploaded files
  • Server Administration
  • Garbage Collector should be able to be scheduled to run from the control panel
  • Reindexing should be able to be scheduled from the control panel
  • Provide GUI to change the default Liferay favorite icon to any desired logo
  • LDAP mapping GUI to custom Liferay attributes
  • Configurations: Less configurations from properties files and provide more GUI to update from control panel.

Support

Agility CMS9.0
Based on 1 answer
Support is always available and responsive when we email, responding right away that they are on the case, even if they are unable to solve the issue right away. Support will usually find the issue of our problem quickly and require minimal hand-holding, direction, or re-explanation from our team. They are knowledgeable about the platform and our instance and are able to run diagnostics with minimal information from us. When issues are resolved they always request confirmation that things are working as expected before closing out our tickets.

Alternatives Considered

Agility offers a balance of simplicity and capability that other platforms don't offer. User-friendly platforms like Word Press do not offer our company the ability to fully customize our site based on our goals, but more adaptable programs like Drupal do not offer the support resources to simplify the structure of our site with pre-existing modules or professional development to meet our needs.

Alfresco: Very good CMS but not good for presentation or front end technology.Portofino: Not much scalable and high available CMS.eXo Platform: Slowly growing in market but not mature community like Liferay and less support from community.Microsoft SharePoint: Proprietary Software from Microsoft. Nuxeo ECM Platform: Picking up the market but not mature community and support from the community.

Return on Investment

  • It is fairly simple for our employees to make web updates via Agility CMS, and this greatly optimizes our employee efficiency.
  • We are able to load and host company files easily via Agility CMS Media & Documents, which allows minimal, quick content sharing between departments when other file sharing platforms are not available.
  • Automation platforms and tracking code easily integrate with Agility CMS global headers to allow us to seamlessly acquire analytics on our site visits and content access.

  • Liferay scales well both in terms of performance but also in terms of operational self-service and eases the burden on IT.
  • Compliance, Marketing and Client Engagement teams can create and modify content and submit it for approval. This results in lower operational costs in the areas of new private-label sites and maintenance of current sites because, prior to Liferay, site content management required expensive IT software engineering resources to implement compliance and marketing content changes.
