Your web presence is a big deal, and the software platform that runs it must be up to the task. You must be able to update your site easily, to provide your partners with the services they need, and to enable your users and customers to interact with you. It shouldn’t be complicated: in today’s cloud-based environment, you should be able to make changes with a click of a button and dynamically allocate nodes whenever you need them.
Liferay DXP offers all of this and more. It is a mature, stable, open source platform with a strong heritage of serving some of the biggest sites in the world—and some of the smallest, too.
