Liferay Releases SDK to Speed Up Custom Mobile App Development
New developer toolkit helps Liferay's customers develop and manage sophisticated mobile apps

LOS ANGELES, CA – April 1, 2014 – Liferay, Inc., which makes open source portal software, is releasing a mobile software development kit today. The Mobile SDK is part of Liferay's commitment to being a mobile-ready platform, which began with making responsive design work out of the box in Liferay Portal 6.2. The Mobile SDK takes the platform's mobile capabilities a step further, making the unique benefits of Liferay Portal available to mobile app developers.

"I'm excited that we're thinking about how to bring our customers into the mobile revolution—and it really is a revolution, impacting every aspect of the way we do business and behave as a society," said Bryan Cheung, Liferay's CEO. "I think developers are going to love the Mobile SDK, because people are so hungry for the kind of immediacy that you only get from your smartphone. Anything that helps you make mobile apps more quickly with more relevant functionality is going to add a lot of value."

The Liferay Mobile SDK is designed to work with Liferay Portal 6.2 and the major mobile app platforms such as Android and iOS.

Among Liferay Mobile SDK's many features include:

  • Authentication against your Liferay Portal instance
  • Exception handling
  • Remote services calls
  • JSON parsing
  • Batch calls
  • Async calls
  • Auto-generated SDK, which is template based
  • Integration with Developer Studio
  • Compatibility with custom portlets

There are three key reasons to use the SDK when building mobile apps:

  • Common shared services such as log-in, handling errors, and getting content to and from the mobile app (using JSON)
  • Use of Liferay's built-in content and collaboration features in the mobile app
  • Use of custom objects or integrations in the mobile app

For example, a company whose CRM is already integrated with Liferay will find it much easier with the Mobile SDK to create a mobile app that browses customer records, and each sales rep will have personalized access to their customers. Mobile apps designed by retail companies for their customers could take advantage of shopping catalog integration to quickly develop a native mobile e-commerce app, and enhance the experience with the phone's camera and location services.

Long-term, Liferay hopes its portal can be used as a central hub that aggregates data and interactions from mobile devices to help companies understand the needs and preferences of their customers and employees. Of course, to help address privacy issues, Liferay will consider how companies can give more control of personal information to the users of the mobile apps they create.

"We're making mobile a priority," said Michael Young, CTO, Liferay. "Our customers want this for a lot of the same reasons they chose Liferay: they don't want to keep re-writing the same code for several mobile apps, and they want to consolidate integration points behind a single system. The solutions we've come up with for making websites and portals easier to develop cross over well to mobile app development."

The Liferay Mobile SDK is available as an Eclipse plugin that can be installed into Liferay Developer Studio, Liferay IDE, or a developer's own Eclipse environment. The Mobile SDK is also available for download at github.com/liferay/liferay-mobile-sdk/releases.

Get a free demo of the Mobile SDK by signing up for the webinar at http://discover.liferay.com/liferay-live-11apr2014

"Over the past one and a half years, Liferay Marketplace has grown remarkably, registering more than 600 developers from over 25 countries and growing almost five times its number of apps," said John Choi, Liferay's Director of Operations. "Adding e-commerce functionality was a critical next step to our continuous efforts to improve and evolve Liferay Marketplace. Developers are afforded a well-trafficked, proven platform to have their Liferay expertise pay dividends, and the Liferay community benefits from a growing universe of apps that meet specific business and technical needs. We are excited to see what people create."

Benefits of Marketplace e-commerce for developers, partners, and ISVs include:

  • The ability to set app prices with bundled pricing and discount capabilities

  • Varied licensing options such as standard licenses versus developer licenses

  • Different licensing terms – perpetual or annual

  • App license management based on Liferay Instance/per installation of Liferay Portal

  • The ability to offer renewable support services

  • Customizable geographic offerings

  • Easy management of sales taxes and other value-added taxes

  • App sales performance monitoring

Liferay Marketplace customers will have access to:

  • Streamlined payment processing

  • Easy renewal or upgrades of app licenses

  • Ability to purchase for personal use or for a project team

  • Automated app update notifications when Marketplace is accessed through Liferay Portal.

Arcusys, a Liferay certified partner and a grand prize winner of last year's Liferay Marketplace App Contest, is one of many partners looking to take advantage of the new e-commerce features. Its eLearning platform, Valamis, has been downloaded more than 2,000 times and is one of the most popular third-party apps in Liferay Marketplace.

"We strongly believe in the enterprise app store concept as a distribution channel for enterprise applications. We are excited for new business opportunities as Liferay Marketplace further evolves with e-commerce," said Jussi Hurskainen, CEO, Arcusys Ltd. "With Liferay Marketplace, we have been able to reach out and listen to what our customers really need in their future eLearning platform."

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.

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. Caser facturó 2.778 millones de euros en primas en 2011 y obtuvo unos beneficios de 133 millones de euros antes de impuestos. Al Grupo pertenecen otras empresas especializadas en la asistencia, como Caser Residencial, Caser Asistencia, y cinco centros hospitalarios en Extremadura e Islas Canarias.
