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

Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP)

  • Portal Security: It has good security model but in few areas it requires improvement.
  • Encrypt LDAP passwords on import

  • Add virus scan for uploaded files
  • Server Administration

  • 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.

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.
