Liferay Inc. is doing big things. The Broadcast Newsroom article “Liferay North America Symposium Highlights Growth, Business Versatility of Portal Platform” highlights the Liferay North America Symposium in San Francisco. More than 180 enterprises, universities and government agencies will attend this huge event. Liferay serves a variety of clients and partners, customers and community members representing various industries will come together to learn about how Liferay’s open source portal platform is solving some of today’s biggest business challenges. In addition current customers such as Union Pacific and Air Liquide will talk about the groundbreaking solutions built Liferay solutions.
Brian Cheung, Liferay’s Chief Executive Officer made the following statement.
Using the Liferay platform, our customers are seeing success across a variety of business objectives, such as increasing customer satisfaction, stimulating collaborative learning, involving patients in their own care, and managing complex business systems. In a cloud-enabled, mobile-connected, always on era, having a strong portal platform that manages identity, interaction, and information is more important than ever for maintaining strong relationships with customers, partners, and employees.
Liferay isn’t just talking a good game they have the numbers to back it up. Over the last few years they have experienced a double-digit year-over-year growth and this past year was no different. At the end of 2011 they had recorded a 55 percent jump in revenue when compared to the previous year. In addition they have expanded their workforce and are now present in 12 countries with plans for more international offices in the near future. Open source is definitely the way to go in the enterprise world as shown by notable companies such as LucidWorks. If Liferay can continue to keep up the pace the sky’s the limit.
