Pros
"The look and feel and the user interface are great."

More Liferay Digital Experience Platform Pros →

"No code and low code, scalable, and stable collaboration platform. Straightforward to set up. Its support system is good and offers fast issue resolution.""What I like about SharePoint is that they keep up with a lot of updates, and they bring out new features. I also like that the system is integrated with the Microsoft 365 suite of apps.""For SharePoint, I believe the most valuable feature is the customization and allowing you to share and edit files and documents. Being able to share externally and the precise administration of the files in terms of giving permissions and controlling who has access to what is a very good feature.""Ability to store files of any type."

Cons
"The plugins should be more affordable."

More Liferay Digital Experience Platform Cons →

"The solution lacks collaboration features.""It has worked very well for me. It seems like they've improved everything. I don't have any cons about it as such, but I don't think they have a talk-to-text, speech-to-text, or speech-to-type. That would be cool for accessibility.""Document management and the ability to easily integrate single sign-on (SSO) are areas for improvement in SharePoint.""Integration needs to be more straightforward, particularly with Azure. SharePoint also needs a more comprehensive introductory course for users."

  • "Any extended support from Microsoft is expensive."
