Liferay Business Portal

The Challenge

A Russian customer needs a unique solution to develop business communication in the Siberia region. The system should contain information about the company’s interests in Siberia, allow online payments, find actual information about products and services in the region, and also be useful not only for the customers and company itself, but for investors. The system should also include company finance information, annual reports, and market trends. Softage specialists are immediately put to work solving this program.

Solution Overview

To meet all of the customers’ requirements and reduce time and expenses, our technical experts offered to use Liferay Portal Community Edition as a basic CMS. Liferay is a highly scalable web platform for building business solutions with a sizable quantity of ready modules and features that can be used during further system development. Several Liferay features are used almost without changes including content management, information index, and search administration, while others are customized or replaced by Softage developers.

Java web application development necessary for the project is also based on a Liferay Portal solution. Silicon Taiga is a web portal developed specifically for Siberia region to collect and structure in one database all business information and help to find and communicate to target individuals. Two languages are available: English and Russian.
