2018. dotCMS Launches dotCMS 5.0 – Developed with ‘NoCode’ Philosophy
dotCMS, a leading open-source Java CMS and Customer Experience Management software vendor, has launched their latest version, dotCMS 5.0, adding UI / UX features to improve the author experience, a refreshed Edit Mode, new reporting, as well as enhancements to search and security. Layouts are now tied to the page itself, making it easy to make changes to the layout without having to leave the page editor. New Workflow Builder allows for multiple workflow schemes per content type. Content Type Builder allows drag and drop from a list of fields to build out content types. Adding rows, columns, and changing the order of fields makes it easier to build out new content types, especially forms. A huge improvement to the usability of the platform, containers can be used multiple times on the same page, leading to the decrease in the number of templates and the overall ease of management of templates, layouts and containers. Along with these new drag-and-drop features, dotCMS 5.0 also includes a new reporting module that integrates with Google Analytics to allow businesses to gain insight into their website right from the dotCMS Dashboard. This visualization of your web properties can be customized to show what insights are most important to your business.

2016. Liferay launches Digital Experience platform
Historically known as portal software, Liferay has tilted into the digital experience market with its new DXP - Digital Experience Platform. This shift isn’t exactly off course for Liferay. It’s more like a natural evolution. According to Bryan Cheung, Liferay CEO, their customers were continually asking for things that were not part of a traditional portal implementation, and Liferay would build or integrate them, so it only made sense to re-evaluate their place in the market. Liferay DXP is made up of a few different components. The foundation is the portal platform itself. There are built-in integrations with a number of backend systems including CRM, ERP, support, and other systems. What this infrastructure enables customers to do is to build a range of customer experience solutions including web experiences, mobile experiences, or hybrid online/offline experiences across the entire customer lifecycle.
2015. Liferay partners with Red Hat to provide an open source portal solution
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.
