We use Liferay as a digital workspace. We have designed an intranet where we include news, telephone directory, email, application portal, calendar, files and important documents are shared, agenda, quality management, mobile GTT, among others. This tool is used in all our departments. Its implementation has been very useful for our organization. It has facilitated the search for resources and gives us access to all our tools quickly and accurately, allowing us to streamline all our processes and perform our work efficiently.
  • Liferay's safety.
  • Flexibility and scalability.
  • Segmentation and personalization.
  • Its different features to manage content, users and roles.
  • It is open source.
  • Allows files and documents to be shared among registered users.
  • It requires technical expertise and the right people to achieve customization.
  • There is little documentation available for certain functions that make them a bit complex to master.
  • The SSL function for login.
It is ideal for building multiplatform digital experience solutions, where direct and control [over] the content and information is required, where a simple, friendly, intuitive, and also customized workspace design is required, and that generates unique and pleasant experiences to users. Also [well suited when you] need to make the development of effective, flexible, secure solutions that give speed in the development tasks and processes.

We use Liferay DXP extensively to manage our content. It allows the business to make content updates with out the need for code deployments.
  • Theming
  • Customization based on user roles
  • Content Management
  • Flexibility
  • Harder to get started
  • Enterprise level of options can cause confusion
  • Development documentation could be better
Well suited for large enterprise-level projects that need customizable implementations.

My current organization works with hundreds of other organizations to provide Healthcare related benefits. To support these benefits there are multiple applications/sites built on traditional application frameworks. However, as more and more client applications/sites were desired, along with the need for supporting new regulatory and market requirements, it became apparent that a different approach was needed. After extensive evaluation and research, the organization picked Liferay Portal as the base platform for new development and delivery of access to existing systems.

  • OpenSource: Liferay is open source portal framework so developers can easily extend or customize it for their organization or department based on their requirement.
  • OutOfBox: Liferay Portal is not only a portal platform. It also provides a 60+ applications and tools included in the form of portlets. These portlets are available out of the box or in the form of plugins.
  • MarketPlace: Liferay has it own market place (i.e app store) where developer or contributors are contributing their ideas (application) so community can use it freely (some are paid).
  • Enterprise-Ready Portal Solution: It is fully ready to support mission-critical, enterprise applications in an environment configured for multiple redundancies and 24/7 up-times.
  • High Availability and High Performance: Liferay Portal has been tested to support more than 3,000 concurrent transactions (33,000 simultaneous users) on a single 8-core application server, with mean login times under one second and maximum ½ throughput of 79+ logins per second. Liferay Portal has proven to handle millions of page views and over 1.3 million users.
  • Liferay Portal is also deployable to the Cloud and virtual server environments and ensures high availability and performance with: Hardware/Software Load Balancing, HTTP Failover, Session Replication
  • Distributed Cache using Lightweight Multicast Protocol
  • Terracotta, Oracle RAC, and other scalability solutions
  • 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.
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.
