Pimcore 6 will connect MDM/PIM, DAM, WCM, and digital commerce all in one platform. In addition to the completely new user interface, there is also a massive amount of new features added to the product. The most important new features are:
This feature is mainly for developers and they will appreciate the new cleaned up source code. Because of the support of the Symfony 4 Framework Pimcore 6 enables you to use many new features of Symfony 4 in Pimcore projects. Symfony 4 is an improved and lighter version of Symfony 3 without obsolete and unnecessary features/plugins. It is a micro-framework, so it allows developers to enable only what they need. It is also currently the fastest PHP framework.
The new Pimcore Data Hub is integrated into Pimcore 6. The tool provides a central graphical user interface (GUI) to transform and prepare data for input and output channels. Because of this Pimcore, 6 provides easy connectivity with Content-as-a-Service (CAAS) frontends such as React, Vue, and PWAs.
Pimcore 6 provides you with the full platform package, including the most user-friendly setup of personalization in any experience platform in the market. Pimcore 6 has a native combination of enterprise-grade web content management with microservices-based digital commerce framework. Also, you can track user behavior on the server-side instead of the browser side thanks to the Pimcore customer data platform (CDP). This allows you to use segmented customer data for live personalization of web and commerce content.
