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.

MS SharePoint

It is the appropriate tool for document repositories that have many people as public, also for documents where a work team of any size can work simultaneously and the document's membership remains joint (unlike OneDrive). Also to keep the versions of the documents secured at each change. Regarding the distribution and organization of documents, it is perfect to segment by libraries, teams, among others, the documents according to the required audience.

Pros

Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP)

  • Theming
  • Customization based on user roles
  • Content Management
  • Flexibility
Jake Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

MS SharePoint

  • Document sharing - it works really well for this. documents can be included in libraries and organized in folders. Documents can be uploaded as files or links to files stored anywhere that is accessible by URL.
  • Team discussion boards - It does discussion format very well and presents discussion sin a familiar format that all users will recognize. it can also do Wikis.

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.

  • If you are going to implement its intranet system, you may have some problems, Microsoft actually discourages that from happening.
  • Sometime if you need to search, it requires a lot of internal customization.
  • Social networking is separated from the rest of the intranet.
  • Sometimes when you need to upload a great number of files, it becomes slow, and even some files do not upload, so you need to upload them manually.

We are currently using Liferay Portal and plan to keep using it.

We have too much invested at this point to do anything different and there are too many reasons as a company our size to keep it. We are heavily licensed out for Microsoft and have 12 years of SharePoint development baked into who we are. Extracting that as a tool at this point would be dumb and devastating. There are no like-kind competitors to it at an enterprise level that scale and integrate as well.

A lot of users can give you many great ideas how to cleverly use SharePoint's core functionality to implement almost any process you need. It is very sturdy, never crashes. Many applications and third party solutions are built for SharePoint so even customization without Microsoft programming skills is rather easy and low cost.

Support varies by tech and by vendor. I've used Microsoft's support channel and for the most part have been successful to get my questions answered. I've also used third party vendors and have gotten some answers resolved as well, though sometimes getting them on the phone is difficult. It all depends!

Planning to the last detail would be advised. SharePoint is a very large application that takes a lot of finesse to get operational

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

MS SharePoint

While SharePoint isn't as easy to use as Igloo or Squarespace, it comes bundled with Office 365 and drives the backend of those tools. I don't see SharePoint as a place people want to go and see stuff, but rather as a glue that supports all the other Office Products. If we get more in house expertise, then it could be a place that people manage work, but it's not used that way right now

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

MS SharePoint

  • We moved from DocuShare to MS SharePoint and it's been proven very effective.
  • Using MS SharePoint has provided immediate access to documents to staff where in the past, they would have to wait for an admin staff to forward to them.
  • It has been a positive impact for our organization - our newer staff has really benefited from MS SharePoint.
