Likelihood to Recommend

IBM FileNet

I would highly recommend IBM FileNet Content Manager to anyone who has needs that align with the following constraints:
  1. A client who needs highly resilient storage for content such as documents, media files, etc.
  2. A client who has a skilled support team that can perform periodic maintenance tasks on FileNet servers, WebSphere, and database

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.

From a developer's perspective, IBM FileNet Content Manager is definitely usable but the user experience and user interface for some of the development tools used in IBM FileNet Content Manager need a big improvement.From an end user's perspective; however, the usability is excellent. IBM Content Navigator, which is the default UI shipped with FileNet, is very good in terms of UI/UX, extendibility, customization options, and feature set.

It's a great tool for our legacy system however the implementation, management time and lack of a niche provided by IBM makes it a difficult tool to recommend in a fast-paced market.

Alternatives Considered

IBM FileNet

FileNet v ApplicationXtender
FileNet - much more robust.
ApplicationXtender - far more lightweight, easier to deploy and configure. Much more limited in scope.

Great choice for Java based enterprise organizations. Liferay is on the heavier side of CMS systems, and it excels in larger projects but is a waste of time for smaller projects.

Return on Investment

IBM FileNet

  • A lot of improvement is required to FileNet error descriptions when we encounter with any FileNet errors.
  • For document management, workflow management and content repository. FileNet's capability to manage large number of files is awesome and robust.
  • Automation of business process which we developed for our last client has significantly improved their day to day process.
