Fifth Ocean Technologies Joins the Official Liferay Partner Program

Demand for seamless customer experience in both the public and private sector generates new business for Liferay Digital Experience Platform.

SYDNEY, Australia – (16 March, 2017) – Liferay Australia Pty Ltd, which helps companies to create digital experiences on web, mobile and connected devices, has announced the signing of a partnership with Fifth Ocean Technologies (Fifth Ocean). Fifth Ocean is an Australian-based consulting company that has been at the forefront of digital transformation for more than a decade and specialises in software consultancy, development and support services on the Liferay platform.

Fifth Ocean has a long association with the Liferay community having delivered numerous Liferay Portal projects to organisations in the private and government sector, most recently agencies and departments at the federal and state government level operating in highly regulated environments. One of the first priorities for Fifth Ocean is to extend their migration expertise to Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP).

Digital transformation and seamless customer experience is now a major priority for business and government departments. The advances in digital technology, mobility and social media means that organisations must meet very high customer and citizen expectations. They expect streamlined, consistent and easy-to-navigate experiences across all digital channels. Fifth Ocean has a reputation for providing expertise and technology to business and public sector organisations to address these changing patterns and to increase engagement.

“We have a long-standing relationship with Liferay and the Liferay community, so we’re very happy this relationship has developed into a formal partnership. We are looking forward to bringing more high impact services and technology to the Australian market in collaboration with Liferay Australia," said Victor Zorin, Enterprise Architect and Director of Fifth Ocean Technologies.

Since inception Liferay has been open source and offered an Enterprise Subscription in order to provide industry-leading software in conjunction with expert guidance, security, reliability, and the assurances that are necessary for the high demands of digital business. The Liferay Partner Program gives partners access to the Liferay ecosystem including product management, engineering, security, and support teams.

“Fifth Ocean’s decision to partner with Liferay is testament to the additional advantages a formal partnership with Liferay can deliver and the features in the Liferay Digital Experience Platform that can help organisations to provide personalised user experiences and bridge operational silos,” said Adrian Johnson, General Manager, Liferay Australia Pty Ltd.
