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.

Liferay Reports Another Year of Double-Digit Growth
Enterprise portal leader grows revenue by more than 50 percent in 2012

LOS ANGELES, Calif. — (February 27, 2013) — Liferay, Inc., provider of the world's leading enterprise-class open source portal, announced an impressive year of growth that included a greater than 50 percent increase in revenue as well as continued expansion in its community and business ecosystems. The company attributes its 2012 success to significant gains made through opportunities in the financial services, health care and government sectors around the world.  

The open source leader, whose revenue is mainly derived from sales of Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition (EE), its flagship product, saw healthy growth of existing client contracts and key wins in new projects. Last year's most popular use cases of Liferay Portal were as collaborative intranets and customer portals, notably in the health care and financial services industries.

"I'm very pleased to announce another successful year, delivering Liferay's solutions to clients around the world in sectors adopting open source at a high rate," said Bryan Cheung, Liferay's CEO. "Last year's growth is a testament to the Liferay platform's ability to address today's wide-ranging enterprise needs such as increasing customer engagement online and managing complex business content and processes. Liferay's persistent global growth in all areas, including customers, partners, and community members, doesn't show any signs of slowing down in 2013."

New offices that opened in the last year in London, Paris, Saõ Paulo, Tokyo, and the U.S. Midwest have been responding quickly to local demand for Liferay's products and services and have established strategic go-to-market partnerships. For example, Liferay U.K. delivered on a constituent self-service portal for the London Borough of Camden, the French office signed new partner Atos Origin, and the Asia-Pacific team closed major deals in the consumer electronics and telecommunications industries.

Liferay's open source community also experienced significant growth in size and activity. Liferay's 56,000 community members in 2011 grew to over 75,000 by the end of last year, and to date the community has already surpassed 80,000 members. The rapid rise in the formation of Liferay's user groups around the world—last year alone saw 20 user groups form—also points to the strength and vibrancy of Liferay's ecosystem.
