Liferay is a portal framework that has been in development since 2000. It helps to streamline business processes by offering a single sign-on, web-based gateway for users to locate relevant content and easy access to commonly used applications. Liferay is focused on the user experience and allows customization through drag-and-drop portlets, themes and personal pages with a self-defined, friendly URL. The portal also offers control over access to sensitive information and functionality, collaborative tools such as instant messaging, message boards, blogs and wikis, and access to all the organization™s data, content, and information.
