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.

Mattermost

Software developers are big enthusiasts of a ChatOps software, such as Mattermost, as it allows for direct collaboration without unnecessarily relying on email to get projects done. That goes for any teams that require collaboration. Some scenarios where Mattermost may not work as well would be teams that are in different geographic locations, such as teammates in India. Due to the time difference, collaboration would be harder, and an application like Mattermost may not have that much benefit.

Mattermost

  • It's open-source! So our devs could adequate the tool to our necessities.
  • It works particularly well in every navigator.
  • It also works well in mobile phones, even when you choose not to install the mobile app (this is a BIG plus).

Cons

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.

Mattermost

  • UI glitches were frequent occurrences
  • Base pricing is competitive with Slack, but enterprise features come at a hefty price
  • Webhooks are cumbersome to set up compared to Slack

It's an extremely easy to use software, and I would recommend it to every company that is growing. I think they could improve their notification system, as it gets a little spammy sometimes and important notifications get lost. Also needs to improve the number of private chats that you are allowed to create.

Direct support is only available for the paid version, but there is a very active community that provides a considerable amount of information.

Alternatives Considered

Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP)

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.
Jake Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mattermost

Slack is excellent and has many of the same features as Mattermost. However, the cost if you have a larger group can be prohibitive. Mattermost is a better ROI per user, in our opinion. It also allows us to host it ourselves, which is more desirable for management by our MIS department.

Return on Investment

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.
Jake Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mattermost

  • Install, deploy and forget, as the setup was very easy
  • Mattermost has neither had a positive nor negative impact on business objectives
