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.
