These services help our users build and own their digital world with Pimcore.
Open architecture for creating better technology
Open-source builds on the success of others. Companies, individuals and the community. This makes it so powerful. All innovation in the recent years in areas such as cloud computing, big data, artificial intelligence have happened in open-source ecosystems. It has become the primary engine of innovation all around the world. This makes it the key building block of all modern enterprise software architectures. We decided in 2009 that Pimcore will be distributed as an open-source software. Organizations use Pimcore to build ambitious digital projects because:
- It raises their efficiency: Open-source software reduces development cost and increases time-to-market
