London, UK and Santa Clara, USA (PRWEB UK) 4 September 2013
CIGNEX Datamatics, the leading provider of Enterprise Open Source Solutions, today announced a new service offering - Performance Assessment and Tuning of Liferay Portals, as an integral part of its Liferay consulting services. This offering is a part of CIGNEX Datamatics' effort to consolidate its position as the global leader for Open Source solutions which includes Alfresco consulting services as a part of its Portal – Content – Big Data focus.
“We have come across numerous situations where clients have indicated their dissatisfaction with their Liferay Portal deployment. Invariably, we realize that the issue is not with the platform, but the lack of following best practices and a structured approach to the implementation. Based on our experience of rolling out over 200 Liferay Portal solutions across verticals globally, we have a repository of best practices and knowledge base that helps us deliver high-performance portals to our clients,” said Munwar Shariff – CTO & co-Founder, CIGNEX Datamatics.
Each portal deployment is unique in its requirements and performance characteristics. The CIGNEX Datamatics Liferay Portal Performance Assessment & Tuning service comprises over a 100-point performance checklist including coding practices, hardware sizing, caching, web server configuration, network protocol, integration, and many more.
“For existing Liferay Portal adopters, CIGNEX Datamatics assesses their existing hardware and software environment and provides a detailed report recommending modifications to achieve the desired performance. For Enterprises that are in the process of adopting Liferay Portal, CIGNEX Datamatics can tune the same either in the design phase or prior to rolling out to production, ensuring the deployment of a high performance portal solution, right from day one,” added Munwar.
“We were approached by a leading brand in Luxury Goods which was having critical performance challenges in their Liferay based intranet portal. It was taking their staff over 70 seconds to access the intranet portal from their retail outlets over a 256 Kbps connection. By following the CIGNEX Datamatics recommendations, they were able to access the same in 18 seconds – a 74% improvement!” said Paul Anthony, CEO CIGNEX Datamatics.
