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.

Jive

  • Individual design
  • Presence of Russian language (localization can be independently established)

  • Integrates with MS Office, Google Drive, Google Docs

Cons

Jive

  • Search functionality is very weak
  • The information architecture and taxonomy doesnt allow for easy discoverability of content
  • It's hard to navigate the and find spaces/groups that I already know about
  • The main profile/interface does not allow easy access to key tasks or common tasks.
Terry Rydzynski | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

There are always external factors that can impact this decision but currently, the Jive platform is maintaining its lead in the market place in this area. If the innovation in this space by Jive continues, then this number will remain high. Integration with other systems and adaptability to changes in the market or in client needs will also make this decision hard to predict more then 6 months into the future

It was harder to use that expected. The admin needs to be code savvy to truly customize the system. And users need to trained on the system and the setup. Trainings and monitoring need to continue to enforce use.

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.

Jive online training is there. It is OK/average. I feel some other companies are doing better. It is not a piece that is required to have a successfully implementation, but it could be useful to improve it

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 and IBM/HCL Connections have very similar features, but Jive has a much much better UI/UX compared to IBM/HCL Connections (which is horrendous). The usability factor alone was enough to tip the choice in Jive's favor. When compared with Atlassian Confluence, it came down to a toss-up between target user audience. Out of the box, Jive is more tailored to ordinary users that may not be tech-savvy, while Confluence being highly customizable and extensible, demands more from its users.

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

Jive

  • Makes us seem bigger than we are.
  • Makes it so the person that manages this part of the business can go on vacation and can pass on these duties to other people when he is gone.
  • Helped us fulfill MSA requirements from our clients to have phone support. Couldn’t have closed some of our deals without it.

Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP)

  • Can reduce IT costs eventually.
  • Increases upfront costs due to technical knowledge needed for initial setup and maintenance.
  • Hard to analyze ROI until after it's totally implemented.
