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.

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

It's great when you need to drive real decision making and action; the voting tool is particularly useful in this regard. It's a great tool to use when you want to hear all voices, and not just from the loudest individuals. I've used Mural extensively over the last two years, and I've developed an online course in how to use the tool. I've run hundreds of participative workshops with it too, it's my 'go to' for running engaging remote workshops.

Pros

Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP)

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

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

  • It allows you to build from independent work to group exercises and discussions and using brainstorming and the voting tool to drive decision making and action.
  • It has functionality that allows you to bring your audience to different areas of the whiteboard using the 'summon everyone' function, and move between delivering material with 'presentation mode' and interactive exercises where students contribute ideas or suggestions.
  • It offers an interactive and engaging platform for collaboration and costs can be kept low because people can join sessions as visitors.

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.

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

  • The only thing that used to bug me about Mural was the fact that you couldn’t identify participants who joined as visitors (one time collaborators appear as anonymous animals). I noticed recently that visitors can now add their name which is really useful. I expect this change came from Mural user feedback, they do seem to develop the features over time.
  • Sometimes participants can't see images that you add to the whiteboard. There's a way around it but it's a little frustrating and I'm not sure why it happens.

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.

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

MURAL (formerly Mural.ly)

  • Mural supports my company to support our clients who are geographically dispersed. It has been key to delivering some client projects.
