Pimcore officially started development in 2009. On January 21, 2010 the first public beta version was released. The Elements Group, owning Pimcore, decided to provide Pimcore as open source for free use. In June 2013 Pimcore became a dedicated subsidiary of the Elements Group, Pimcore GmbH, that provides services like consulting, training and implementation.
Starting 2015 Pimcore launched a global partnership program with system integrators and digital agencies and has now subsidiaries with partners in several countries in Europe, North America and Southeast Asia.
Pimcore is a web-based application and employs the PHP programming language and the MySQL/MariaDB relational database management system. Pimcore's component based core architecture can be described as a best of breed use of the Symfony Project and leading PHP architectural patterns and components such as composer.
Since the first Pimcore release in 2010 Pimcore has followed a strict API driven approach, by offering both a PHP based core API and open RESTful APIs for all available functionalities and integrations to 3rd party applications. The core of Pimcore is extensible through extensions, content components and applications utilizing the APIs. Pimcore includes an administrative backend interface for managing data and system configuration. The whole interface is powered by the Sencha ExtJS 6 framework providing the graphical user interface for Pimcore.
Pimcore's product is a portfolio focused on multi-domain master data management, omni-channel e-commerce and user experience management. The whole software platform composed of product information management (PIM), web content management (CMS), digital asset management (DAM) and e-commerce is dual-licensed and available under the free and open-source GPLv3 and the proprietary PEL (Pimcore Enterprise) licenses. Pimcore is currently (May 2016) used more than 80.000 times in 174 different countries and has been translated to 20 different languages.
Pimcore's MDM/PIM is built for managing master data in a central location. Pimcore enables users to configure complex multi-domain data models and to consolidate data from multiple sources and formats. Pimcore's data models are powered by more than 40 data entry components that are able to solve complex, multi-domain data modeling scenarios including text, media, relations and classifications (ecl@ss, GS1, BMEcat,...). Manage product data, including hierarchy, structure, validations, versioning and enriching master data with attributes, descriptions, translations, documentation and other related data.
Pimcore features single-source and multi-channel publishing functionality to manage information and to integrate content and data from various sources. With Pimcore, users can create and manage digital experiences for various output channels: Web, mobile, apps, social platforms, print, digital signage and can act as a platform for content-as-a-service (CAAS) strategies.
The pimcore digital asset management platform enables consistent management, tagging, enrichment and sharing of any amount of digital media assets in any format. It is able to integrate into existing IT landscapes for uploading digital assets or for delivering data in the right format to the right output channel.
The Pimcore Suite, combining PIM, CMS, DAM and Commerce in one suite, positions itself as an open source solution for consolidating IT application landscapes, by reducing the amount of needed applications for different domains. In that sense Pimcore is an advocate for integrated and homegenious systems, rather than a best-of-breed approach.
