Ease of Use with Broad Services and Integrations
Liferay owes its growing community of customers, partners, and users to two main factors: the product’s ease of use and its wide array of capabilities out-of-the-box. These include a sophisticated portal, a robust Web Content Management System, multiple collaboration services enhanced with social networking features, as well as a flexible platform for integration with your other existing systems.
Liferay provides all the features of the most sophisticated (and expensive) portal platforms including aggregation, mashups, user personalization, identity management integration, roles based personalization, and access monitoring and compliance.
Web Content Management
Liferay Portal includes a fully integrated Web Content Management System that allows content authors to create and manage content (portlets, pages, themes) and to create roles-based workflow processes for content approval. There is also a built-in document repository with role-based access to documents through a web interface or WebDAV as well as integration with Microsoft Office®, for dynamic document sharing, and more.
There is also a host of built-in collaboration services, including wikis, blogs, forums, personal calendars, webmail clients, internal messaging, online presence, and RSS feeds. A new Knowledge Base portlet allows a group to collaboratively build a virtual library of information.
These components are integrated with social networking features that allow teams to leverage them across user defined groups, teams, and organizations. Multiple customers use Liferay as a social collaboration platform for their enterprises while many others are leveraging these same features in external-facing deployments to help build stronger communities and brand advocacy with their market.
Enterprise Application Integration
Enterprises leverage Liferay for multiple integration scenarios to existing systems, building Mashups, Dashboads, Alerts, and Portlet applications. Liferay’s multi-language capabilities, standards support and new plugin architecture greatly simplify the development and maintenance of enterprise integrations.
