    I've been working with eXo platform for 6 months. we use this platform as a social collaboration place for an Industrial Association. we use community edition for free with a lot ofready-to-usefeatures (like profile, forum,work spaces, wiki, document mng.) documentation is useful feature for us. its a Knowledge Management system (KMS) that provide content mng., advance search, tagging and full-txt search. it enables content sharing through our community. spaces providea virtual place for team work. this application allows you Collaborate on a topic or project with other users. you could have privateDocument Management, wiki or forum in each space. eXo has a great administration pane that let you manageusers and define group and permission. creating customized pages and site is easy for admin. as an JAVA opensource platform you could customize every thing. we did a lot of changes in profile and run some of our services on it. translating eXo was a great and new experience for me. Crowdin Platform is used for managing eXo translations, so you could submit and develop new translation by help of others. Finally the support team is great!

    I've been working with eXo platform for over a year and a half. I've been discovering its features, its qualities and the points to be improved in order to create a custom portal with customizations. Mostly, I consider it as a very good social platform, with a lot of ready-to-use modules and features, like chat, documents, notifications, web calls. Everything is made up in order to be scaled and configured in different environments and techniques. I enjoyed eXo very much, as I enjoyed its special and very kind team, with whom I still talk on Skype or other instant messages services. Even, the latest updates, version 5, are bringing a lot of features and bug fixing!

    Within my organization, eXo Platform is utilized across the entire company. It addresses the issues of efficient collaboration and effective communication between employees, particularly in regards to working on and completing projects.
    For an organization which is particularly project-based, and values the accessibility provided by the cloud platform, eXo Platform offers an excellent solution to these needs while emphasizing social collaboration and project organization. It is especially well-suited for employees who work together remotely or from disjointed locations, allowing them access to collaborative work and tools for easy communication.
    I personally love the user-friendly interface. Often you find software which is difficult to learn, and not utilized as often as it should be because of this. With eXo Platform, the interface is easy to understand, and is not particularly challenging to new users and non-tech savvy individuals. It allows you to get work done, without feeling like using the platform is part of the actual work. It feels more like a natural system you would use in your leisure time to connect with friends and family, rather than a social intranet designed to facilitate employee communication and help you meet project deadlines. The cloud platform allows users to easily share information and files, and collaborate on project work. Another benefit to this is it makes mobile collaboration possible.
    There aren't really any areas I have discovered within eXo Platform that have been disappointing. I believe the company has done a wonderful job creating an intuitive, user-friendly product to assist organizations' overall communication and productivity.

    One of the main reasons for choosing eXo was the good UI and UX. It is well suited for social collaboration features. Chat application provided by eXo is very good and is outstanding when compared to skype. Also Calendar feature is also very helpful for social apps development which plays an important role in developing Social Webapps. Another thing that makes eXo unique is Documents. It plays very good role in document upload and media feature.
    It is very well suited for social collaboration requirements. Also for Intranet based projects it is very well developed. Space is a good feature in eXo where we can invite the user and for sharing ideas via Space. I would like to suggest a point for intranet of eXo. There should be signup option for new users and then Admin can make a call to approve them or not.
    Chat Application is awesome with video conferencing features. Blog Extension is also good for writing blogs and sharing blogs with access and modify permission level. Custom extension to modify or override portal related changes Most of the configuration are XML based which is quite a good thing for initiators.
    Ajax call timing is more when creating space from eXo portal. Sometimes some UI portion was getting messed up in older version of eXo portal. Should have a good validations for e.g "There are no documents available in this folder" instead of blank when there are no documents available in document folder.

    EXo platform offers a large number of ready-to-use functions, which determined your selection. Also, that it has a user interface is well designed. It is easy to know what tasks are available in each section. Learn the system and have the best customer service.
    It is especially suitable for working together remotely or from disconnected locations, allowing them to access collaborative work and tools to facilitate communication. Internal and cloud options also seem to offer a flexible adoption roadmap. It addresses the problems of efficient collaboration and effective communication between employees, particularly with regard to working and completing projects.
    It is easy to use and install on any operating system. With a simple but elegant interface. The chat and file sharing functions are very effective. Status and activity updates, document sharing and administration tools work efficiently. The cloud platform allows users to easily share information and files, and collaborate on project work. Another benefit of this is that it makes mobile collaboration possible.
    It has a considerable learning curve. The initial adoption in a corporate environment implies integration with other applications, it has to improve this aspect.

    This great piece of software build on top of GateIn portal will give you all GateIn features (Content Management, Single Sign-On, LDAP support, etc) and much more. Using eXo Platform we created a secure portal-based site and an intranet that encourages employees in an organization to exchange knowledge, documents, work collaboratively, task management, contact data... All done socially and mobile. Some Features: 1. Microblogging and Activity Streams Activity Stream displays text messages or multimedia content posted by employees , customers, suppliers. It is where you'll find all your company's activity. 2. Document Management Take advantage of version history, rollbacks, votes, comments and more. It lets you store files in a private and secure environment, in other business systems like SharePoint, or in other cloud storage solutions, such as Google Drive or CMIS repositories. 3. Knowledge Management Wikis, Forums, Calendar, Answers & FAQ 4.- Profile Management It's possible to manage and organize all the contacts in your organization in a single directory, together with information on their professional profile. 5.- Groups Create your own collaboration spaces complete with dashboards, discussion forums, wikis, calendars, and documents. Allow any user to create a collaborative space and invite other users to join with different permissions according to roles 6.- Search eXo includes an ElasticSearch based search tool segmented according to the sections and contents in your intranet, indexing other contents published by other systems, making it a federated search tool for your organization's entire knowledge base. 7. Add-ons Marketplace Apart from its native features, you can also integrate eXo with other business applications, productivity tools like BonitaBPM, JasperReports Server, etc. 8.- Mobile Native iOS and Android app. The Cons:
    eXo is an Enterprise Social Network that will improve productivity across the board in all members of the company. It's very feature rich so if you want your organization's knowledge, private, secure and organized then you have to try it!
    We not found any except the lack of a feature found on other enterprise social networks like Yammer (gammification).

Anyway, It's open sourced so you can extend it easly!

    I have been worked on a personal project where I intend to create a niche of social network. I looked for frameworks available on the market that could provide a complete infrastructure to run out my business and I found it at eXo. EXO plataform provides all basic features for developing a niche of social network, such as authentication, active streams and others features you can imagine for a social network. Particulary, one of the reasons I have decided by using of eXo is because it is written in Java, basically ( JSP - you can extend to JSF, Juzu ...) and works over portlets, i.e., you can built modules and apply them over your portal. If you are looking for a framework for build a social network I strongly recomends you at least do a trial with eXo before going deep into your project.
    - Documentation; - Active community, I've got answers for all questions I've done at eXo forum; - Customizable portal; - You don't need touch any line of code to launch a social network;
    - Server is too slow during start up, I believe that is due to the amount the packages that it have to load; - No so flexible for extracting data from database. EXO uses JCR (Java Common Repository), i.e., you will need to use an API to extract data

    In my point of view, eXo is a great solution for both social and portal service demand based on its various features. I must say that it just likes a combination of everything from intranet, social network to blog, wiki,... everything in one. Therefore, with eXo, maybe I dont have to think of any other website since it has covered all what I want and all what I need. However, yes, everything has two sides, perhaps due to such a rich diversity, its processing speed gets troubles and makes people feel uncomfortable when using. I thought that, eXo now should focus more on refactoring its platform so that it can serve customers better. Having many functions is not yet good, but a quick response at least never causes people get mad.

    eXo platform provides features that match requirement of social collaboration,intranet and cloud base application.I am working on eXo platform (1+ year) it is easy for portal customization functionality. It is easy for admin to define users with roles,permission and group management.
    eXo platform provides features like calender for defining tasks,events and meetings with reminder functionality, chat application with video confrencing, Blog engine for writing blogs and sharing information, WebDAV support for sharing of documents.
    In Older version of eXo platform some time it distorts UI and UX but after releasing new eXo platform 4.1 version they are fixed and lots of new functionality added.

    Exo Platform is an outstanding software that provides an excellent platform for collaborating for our projects. It consists of powerful and effective tool that helps a lot in our business. It comprises of perfect features and functionality is fantastic. This software gives best solutions for communication problems and provides good opportunity for easier and effective cooperation among the co-workers.
    In the beginning, when we start working on Exo Platform, it service is quite slow. Another issue is that when one wants to extract data from data base, it is not that much flexible. In order to start video conference, it takes long time to understand the issues.
