Likelihood to Recommend

Jive

It's definitely worth considering Jive for the type of application we've developed i.e. a central shared repository for all employees to host and discuss information. I can't say I have ever used a superior tool, but they may exist. I'm just not sure I would want to use it exclusively for file hosting, though. It does integrate with various other tools, so perhaps it would be fine if used in conjunction with another tool for that purpose.

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.

Cons

Jive

  • Does not allow for much customization
  • Mobile app is a kind of clunky and features are a little lack luster
  • The main homepage has a lot going on, I would like for it to be separated out better or easier to follow.

Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP)

  • 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.

Usability

It was very cumbersome to generate reports. Often I had to run several reports and then merge them offline to get what I needed.

Reporting granularity is also lacking

Uptime was OK. But there was one day that the system crashed for a whole day. Our company was unable to operate. And all the plugins to word/excel froze causing those systems to freeze.

Jive posted a statement to the media saying all customers were up, but we were not.

They did an OK job when I needed them. Except for the one day the system went down. Jive pointed the finger at the hosting company, and the hosting company pointed the finger at Jive. No reliable information came to us.

If I did this over, I would hire out the implementation. They know the best practices and could have guided us to make an easier to use setup.

Alternatives Considered

Jive

Jive is a little behind the curve in comparison with the latest Microsoft features. Jive's lack of native capabilities to support work that requires process or structure increasingly puts it at a disadvantage.

Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP)

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

Jive

  • It's expensive to use as a SaaS solution
  • Had a great adoption rate
  • Where a buyer is looking for a dedicated/single platform in this market, Jive is often the leading choice.

Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP)

  • 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.
