There are many Content Management System (CMS) solutions available in the market today and it can be difficult to choose the one that is right for your business. As with any software selection, the choice for a CMS solution should be based on your requirements. In this article, we discuss three examples of business structure and requirements that would make Liferay a good content management system choice.
‘If you want to go beyond simple document management with a CMS solution that is capable of handling complex content in a collaborative environment, Liferay Portal will be suitable for your business.’
Liferay will not be suitable for every business and, if your business team is not familiar with the vendor market and the choices available, it is wise to consult an expert in CMS solutions – one that can look at your requirements and help you decide which CMS solution is right for your business.
Here are three examples of business needs and business structure that would be appropriate for the Liferay portal solution:
Content-Centered – The Liferay Portal is a strong solution for those businesses that require a content focus. Businesses that provide articles, blogs, information or forums will find Liferay suitable for use. Bringing information together and making it accessible is definitely a Liferay strength. It offers plenty of tools and features to support the organization, search and sharing of various types of content with good performance.
Web-Based – Liferay focuses on the web experience and offers a set of applications to help you build your website and make it accessible. These tools are accessible and can be used to create your site without writing code so the process is faster and more streamlined. User Management, Security and other features provide a strong foundation to get you started without having to build these functions.
Collaborative – The Liferay Portal is designed to support social networking and collaboration so it is great for team environments and those who manage projects, have a need for shared editing or collaborative workflows.
While every Content Management System (CMS) is designed to manage content, not every solution is as adept at handling complex content management, a large user base or multiple locations with large data volumes. If you want to go beyond simple document management with a CMS solution that is capable of handling complex content in a collaborative environment, Liferay Portal will be suitable for your business needs. For very simple, small content management projects, Liferay Portal would be less suitable.
