Hi, somebody can tell me if LifeRay is better than IBM WebSphere Portal. The company which i'm memeber wish get a portal to them but they have 2 option: LifeRay and IBM WebSphere Portal. We have a WebSphere Application Server 6.1. Functionality, is LifeRay better than WebSphere in cost, performance, facility of use, and so on.
I'd really look at the hardware and peripheral components as well, and see how deeply vested I was in IBM.
IBM WebSphere is a solid implementation, however, Liferay has a tendency to implement the latest standards in a more timely fashion.

Liferay portal also provides the highest value at every level. Liferay portal is based
on 100% standards and a set of key technologies. The standards include AJAX and
JSON, hCalendar Micro-format and iCalendar, JSR-127 and JSR-314 (compliant JSF),
JSR-168 and JSR-286 (compliant portlet), JSR-170 (Content Repository API for CMS),
JSR-220 (Hibernate), OpenSearch, WebDAV, WSRP, and so on.
In a word, it is easy to use, quick and run over WebSphere Application Server and any other application servers.
Liferay is a Open source.So,If need to customize thinngs in your own way.I will
recommend Liferay.But if you just to do follow standard approach you can use IBM
websphere.IBM comes with a lot of tools that speed development.But it also restrict
customizations.Also Liferay is free and IBM websphere is paid.
