I am new enough to Lightroom 4, that I know very little about using most of the file organizational features.
Having read the other messages about DxO, I am wondering if it would be a good product to switch to, if Adobe moves to their CC plan. So can it manage workspaces as well or better, than L4?

Adobe has given several hints that it does not plan to move Lightroom to a cloud platform product. With Lightroom you will own your own copy of the program. Adobe has also keep the price down and they have very attractive upgrade offers.
Lightroom 5 has some very interesting features. You can view some of these at the following YouTube links:
Here is a useful DxO Optics Pro video:
Both programs have demos. Download and use both in your likely workflow. One of them will seem more useful than the the other based on your needs. For me it was DxO Optics Pro and Photoshop CS6 Extended. You might like Lightroom better.
DxO has a very nice PDF manual for DxO Optics Pro 8. You can get a Mac or Windoes version at the following link:
