Likelihood to Recommend

Asana

Asana functions particularly well in scenarios with well-established teams with well-established processes and a mature SDLC. The reason is that Asana can be configured to do many, many different things, and be used in many, many different ways, and with that power comes a lot of responsibility to figure out your process before you try and automate it. It's software, not magic.

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

  • Simplicity of user interface without neglecting functionality
  • Timeline and calendar views are extremely useful
  • Templates for repeatable projects

  • 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

  • It's not that easy to change or update the name of the title. You need to click the arrow down button beside the title to edit. I believe it should be easier like just click on the current title and change it.
  • I would like Asana to put a feature like Facebook and LinkedIn where you know who's online and who's not online. Because if the person-in-charge is online you can communicate with him real time rather than waiting for him to respond later on.
  • I would be glad too if they add a voice call or video call feature so that if you have concerns and the person you would like to talk to is online you can speak with him right away. Some comments or revisions just needs to be explained through a call to eliminate misunderstandings.

  • 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.

Asana is adding more useful features and it makes the work of their entire team more organized and more efficient. It really helps us in achieving greater achievements as a team. It helps us to earn more revenue since we have more satisfied clients, simply because we are able to finish their project on time or even before the due date.

They don't fix everything, but they have certainly gone the extra mile for us. When we were frustrated with a recent change that altered our default view of every project, changing it from all projects being visible to just incomplete projects being visible, they wrote a custom script to change all of our default views back for us, so we didn't have to manually click 3,000 times (we have over a thousand projects).

Asana Board is really awesome and assigning tasks is ultra easy. I can manage multiple projects without headaches.

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

  • The best tool I have used for project management
  • ROI hit in few months, Productivity alot increased
Jestin Sebastian profile photo
  • 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.
