Liferay and Red Hat are collaborating on an open source portal that combines Liferay Portal and Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP). The product is targeting companies that want more open-source, enterprise grade portal options, the companies maintain. To that end, there is the potential of additional integration with other Red Hat JBoss Middleware products in the near future. From a company perspective the deal is an interesting one in that Red Hat stopped offering new subscriptions to JBoss Portal in February 2015. Red Hat is continuing support for JBoss Portal through the current release stream, which is scheduled to end in March 2018. This new venture represents, one could conclude, Red Hat's ongoing commitment to the portal market.
2012 - Open Text and Liferay create Dropbox clones
Could you imagine couple of years ago that such serious enterprise vendors like Open Text and Liferay, that develop such a serious enterprise content management systems (ECM) will copy such a simple consumer service as Dropbox? Nevertheless, it happens. Because even in large corporations (that use ECM) employees are ordinary people. And they also don't want to work for the system, but want the system to help them work. And they also use Dropbox, even if IT administrators prohibit it. There is only one way out - to create the same (simple) service and protect it with firewall. This is the very idea behind the new services: Open Text Tempo and Liferay Sync. They allow to sync files between desktop folder, web account, tablet and smartphone, quickly share files with co-workers, and they work on corporate servers. That's simple.
