We’re honored to be recognized among the Strong Performers in the The Forrester Wave™: Intranet Platforms, Q2 2020*. This is the first year that Forrester has written a Wave report targeted for Intranet platforms.
What is the Forrester Wave for Intranet Platforms Report?
According to Forrester, intranets remain the least loved among typical applications provided to employees; this is because most intranets are not agile enough to handle shifting business models, frequent organizational changes, and even the unexpected work-from-home mandates.
However, employers can turn the tide by leveraging a modern intranet solution. By providing employees with tailored collaboration and knowledge tools, they will be more engaged and productive, which will create a better employee experience.
To help customers evaluate a platform to provide this experience for their workforce, Forrester’s Wave for Intranet Platforms report assesses the top vendors in the intranet market to see how they stack up.
We believe that Forrester has recognized Liferay as a Strong Performer on account of the following key distinctions:
Robust Content Repository Services and Search Experience
Research shows that employees spend as much as a quarter of their workday looking for the information to do their jobs. Liferay can help cut down this time to empower employees to be more efficient and have a better overall experience.
Strong Open Source Heritage
As Gartner did in its 2020 Magic Quadrant for Digital Experience Platforms, the Wave report noted Liferay’s strong open source heritage and focus on developers. Our customers are able to benefit from the active open-source community of more than 200,000 global developers, who continuously contribute to the codebase.
Additionally, customers are able to gain visibility into the Liferay codebase, making it easier to integrate with other systems, cost savings, and freedom from vendor lock-in.

Riding the Wave
This announcement comes after Gartner has awarded Liferay the highest scores among evaluated vendors in business-to-employee (B2E) use cases in the 2020 Critical Capabilities for Digital Experience Platforms.
We believe these recent evaluations highlight Liferay’s commitment to serving B2E use cases and will continue to propel us to focus on the areas of improvement Forrester has identified. Future enhancements include low-code application development tools, investments into analytics, specifically around content, and integrations with commonly-used applications such as real-time chat and productivity suites.
