Liferay Takes Leadership Role in OSGi Alliance for Modular Software Standards
Nomination to Board of Directors underscores Liferay's increased commitment to extensible, easier to manage software

LOS ANGELES – (February 18, 2015) – Liferay, Inc., which makes enterprise, open source portals, today announced that it is now a Strategic Member of the OSGi Alliance and has been voted a seat on the Board of Directors. The announcement comes during Liferay's second year as a member of the worldwide consortium of technology innovators and will give the company representation in both the operations and technical sides of the organization.

Liferay's Senior Software Architect Ray Augé was elected to the OSGi Alliance Board of Directors. Other companies represented on the Board include IBM, Oracle, Salesforce.com, NTT, Adobe, Paremus, ProSyst Software and Software AG. Augé was also selected to co-chair the Enterprise Expert Group, which defines the technical requirements and specifications needed to use the OSGi Service Platform in enterprise business scenarios.

Liferay's expanded role within the OSGi Alliance means greater influence over the direction of OSGi specifications to meet the needs of Liferay customers. The effort also falls in line with the company's long-term investment in modularity. First introduced into the product in Liferay Portal 6.2, OSGi is a framework for developing modular Java applications that will continue to be used and developed in future versions of the platform. Liferay believes the increased componentization of applications into software modules will mean greater value for Liferay users—it will simplify portal implementations, lead to an easier development process to quickly deliver new features, and reduce complexity for maintenance and upgrades.

"We at Liferay are believers in the modular approach to software development and in the OSGi Alliance's role to reducing software complexity for the greater good," said Ray Augé, Liferay's Senior Software Architect. "With that mission in mind, we're excited to work with the smart people and experienced companies at the OSGi Alliance who are solving real-world problems for software developers."

"Ray and the Liferay team are welcome additions to OSGi Alliance's leadership group," said Susan Schwarze, VP and Director of the OSGi Alliance Board. "We look forward to the continued knowledge Liferay brings from nearly 15 years creating Java-based software that is used by some of the world's biggest companies. The technical expertise that Ray and the team bring will be an asset for the consortium and we look forward to jointly accomplishing our strategic goals for Cloud and the Internet of Things."

Liferay Develops Audience Engagement Tool to Match Customer Priorities
New audience targeting app furthers the enterprise portal provider's leadership in providing personalized user experiences

LOS ANGELES – (January 6, 2015) – Liferay, Inc., which makes enterprise, open source portals, today announced the release of its Audience Targeting app for Liferay Portal. Through the app, companies can show the right content at the right time to their visitors to create the most relevant, engaging web experience for the people they want to reach.

Increasingly, the challenge for marketers and other business users today is for ways to connect with their audiences and have online conversations through valuable, interesting content. Using the Audience Targeting app, businesses can make authentic connections with their customers, partners, employees and any other individuals visiting their sites. The app, available on Liferay Marketplace, offers the ability to tailor specific content for audiences based on user behavior on the site, user information such as age and gender, social media attributes, and more. Marketers can also create targeted campaigns, track user actions and generate reports on the effectiveness of the campaigns.

"Getting audience engagement right comes down to solving three questions," said Edwin Chung, VP of Product Development for Liferay. "Who are you trying to engage, what information is important to that person, and what is the best way to display the targeted content on your site? Whether it's your customers, your partners, or your employees, personalized audience engagement is quickly becoming an expected part of their interactions with your company. We recognize this and continue to evolve our solutions for audience engagement and content targeting to give our customers the tools they need to provide better, more customized user experiences across the board."

As a portal vendor, Liferay is in a uniquely advantageous position to serve the entire customer lifecycle, from prospecting to deal closing to ongoing customer service interaction. Using Liferay, companies can engage with customers across devices and gain a comprehensive understanding of their needs from multiple backend systems. Other engagement solutions, such as web content management (WCM) vendors whose focus is more narrowly on gaining prospects, only touch part of the customer lifecycle.

Grupo Caser confía en el software libre para actualizar su "intranet" que se utilizará en toda su red de oficinas y servicios centrales
A través de Liferay Portal, la plataforma Open Source más utilizada del mundo para la creación de portales Web, la compañía renueva su red de comunicación para ofrecer servicios online a más de 45 oficinas

MADRID, Spain — (15 de Enero de 2012) — Caser, uno de los principales grupos aseguradores en España, ha puesto en marcha una nueva versión de su intranet corporativa, utilizando Liferay Portal, la plataforma de código abierto más utilizada del mundo para la creación de portales Web.

El nuevo portal facilita el diálogo entre empleados, a través de espacios virtuales de participación activa (empresa – empleado/a, empleado/a – empresa, negocio – empleado/a, empleado/a – negocio, empleado/a – empleado/a), al tiempo que presta servicios de intranet a las compañías del grupo. El objetivo final de sus responsables es reforzar el papel de los empleados en el desarrollo de la organización, así como garantizar la disponibilidad de servicios online.

"Hoy podemos decir que Grupo Caser cuenta con una intranet moderna y eficaz, que presta servicios de calidad a nuestros empleados, y que además facilita la colaboración eficaz y fluida entre ellos", señala el director de E-Business, Alfonso Cartagena, responsable del proyecto.

La nueva intranet del grupo Caser va a permitir generar páginas web personalizadas para cada filial, que serán accesibles para empleados, partners, colaboradores y clientes, con la posibilidad de gestionarlas todas desde un único punto, de una forma tan sencilla que puede realizarlo cualquier empleado, sin necesidad de contar con conocimientos técnicos especiales. "Hemos creado un entorno de colaboración integrado, --subraya Antolín Tello, director de Organización y Arquitectura Tecnológica de Grupo Caser-- con espacios virtuales de comunicación, tanto verticales como horizontales, en función de cada necesidad, y accesibles para todos los empleados".

Liferay Portal es la plataforma de software libre código más extendida en el mundo para la generación de portales en Internet. En España, utilizan ya esta tecnología empresas como Telefónica, Pullmantur o Grupo Caja Rural; organismos públicos como la Comunidad de Madrid, el Gobierno de Cantabria o el Principado de Asturias; y entidades docentes como la Universidad Complutense de Madrid o la Universidad del País Vasco.

Grupo Caser ha utilizado la edición Enterprise de Liferay Portal, que complementa la tecnología con servicios profesionales de soporte, formación y consultoría, e incluye todas las herramientas necesarias para crear portales personalizados, crear diferentes perfiles de usuarios y diseñar diversos servicios de administración interna (reserva de salas, directorio corporativo, documentos, noticias, aplicaciones departamentales, etc.), aprovechando además las funcionalidades de la intranet anterior.

"Podemos, por ejemplo, crear nuevos foros u otros canales de relación y participación activa entre la empresa y los empleados", explica Alfonso Cartagena. "Vimos que Liferay Portal era la tecnología más adecuada y la que mejor se adaptaba a nuestros requerimientos, sobre todo en cuanto a las capacidades de gestión del portal, y en otros apartados, como la creación de entornos multi-site, la personalización del portal o las prestaciones de colaboración, así como por su capacidad multi-idioma, su facilidad de administración y, en definitiva, porque, con la funcionalidad estándar, esta plataforma cubría el 80 por ciento de nuestras necesidades".

Por su parte, la directora general de Liferay para España y Portugal, Carolina Moreno, subraya que "a la hora de elegir una plataforma Web para toda la organización, son muchos los criterios que decantan una decisión, pero entre los más importantes está, sin duda alguna, el soporte local. En nuestro caso, este soporte lo aporta un equipo de ingenieros españoles, lo que ha permitido a Caser poner en marcha un proyecto de esta magnitud, con la garantía de que es el propio proveedor quien ofrece el soporte", concluye.


Acerca de Grupo Caser

El grupo Caser cuenta con 70 años de experiencia en el mercado asegurador español. La compañía ofrece soluciones en todos los ramos: hogar, automóviles, salud, agrarios o vida, entre otros, atendiendo las necesidades de 3,5 millones de clientes a través de más de 15.000 puntos de venta en España, una amplia red de agentes y corredores y de acuerdos con otras empresas.
