  • This comparsion is biased towards Life Ray. For example, slide 4: " Drupal is only an Open Source CMS Platform NOT a Portal or anything else". This is not true, Drupal is a CMS and a framework, Drupal is highly flexible and be an eCommerce, complete website, webapplication, headless site (for webservices, for example) or whatever you do with it.

Making a decision between Liferay and Drupal

  1. 1. Liferay and Drupal Comparison 1 @shubhamnagar Director – InfoAxon Technologies INDIA’s FIRST Open source Integration Company
  2. 2. 2 Portal vs CMS – Often a Source of confusion
  3. 3. 3 What is a Portal? What is a CMS ? Focuses on content and application delivery A content management system and not a content delivery system Has administration of users who author content Manage and audit the publication of content Delivers personalized or customized content to users Manages access to content and applications (SSO) Contextualizes and frames large content sets
  4. 4. 4 Liferay is a Open Source Horizontal Portal and CMS Platform with rich enterprise stability and capabilities Drupal is only an Open Source CMS Platform NOT a Portal or anything else
  5. 5. 5 What is Drupal? What is Liferay ? • Drupal is an open source content management platform • PHP Based • GPL License • Liferay Portal is an open source enterprise portal platform easily integrated with available frameworks (also open source) • Liferay Portal is integrated with Liferay CMS, a built-in content management system and a wide collection of collaboration tools – all available in one download • Java based • MIT License Summary • Drupal = CMS* • Liferay = Portal + CMS + Collaboration Tools + Enterprise Support + Social + Document Management + Workflow all in one pack *Both Drupal and Liferay offer add-ons that provide functionality as additional downloadable modules. In Drupal you need to know where and what to pick. No support from Drupal directly
  6. 6. 6 For the fifth year, independent leading research firm Gartner has named Liferay a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Horizontal Portals. Drupal is considered more a niche player
  7. 7. 7 The portal and CMS markets are converging/evolving into the larger knowledge worker productivity software market with digital engagement across customers, partners and employees giving birth to new business models Top spending priorities are: • Portals and portal frameworks • Content and document management systems • Navigation, search, and retrieval (NSR) • Collaboration • Digital Engagement Liferay has always been evolving toward integrated portal, CMS, NSR, Social, Multi Site and collaboration functionality
  8. 8. 8 Only enterprise portals easily encompass all other functional areas in the knowledge management, digital engagement and content targeting market. Advantages of Portal against CMS, NSR, Collaboration • LDAP integration and enterprise taxonomy concepts • Customizable and robust authentication pipeline • Portal integration framework can envelop any CMS, blog, Wiki • Standalone Wiki or blog is a commodity; portal-enabled wikis/blogs with community scoping adds greater value • Portal offers standardized and generic integration through Web services, REST, ESB, etc. • Navigation, search, retrieval works across enterprise applications and content sources
  9. 9. 9 Drupal Professional Support • Support provided by third party consulting companies • Highest SLA (unknown) Liferay Professional Support • Support provided directly by Liferay, Inc., creators of Liferay Portal • Highest SLA – 24/7 business critical phone support with one hour response time provided directly from Liferay engineer
