Liferay's not dead yet - but what's keeping it alive?


Missing the answer to why Liferay is essential technology

Sorry, Matt. You've highlighted that Liferay does good charitable work, which I think is great and I'm sure that lends itself to a really cool culture internally, but you fail to connect that to the reason why Liferay's clients find this Java portal server "essential technology". If there is no connection, why is it in the article? If there is a connection, how does that charitable work feed into making their technology better? Is it by attracting a certain type of employee? Are there lessons learned from the charitable work that are fed into product development?
