Pimcore vs TYPO3
Pimcore and TYPO3 are both content management systems powered by open-source technology. They offer flexible and scalable enterprise solutions for digital experience management. What makes them different?
Outdated TYPO3 proprietary programming language TypoScript can give a difficult time to software developers making setup and maintenance costly and complex.
Pimcore is powered by the widely used Symfony PHP Framework. It's one of the latest, modern web technologies that empowers developers to deliver solutions fast and efficiently.
TYPO3 is a CMS which is only suitable for the administration of websites. Important features such as Web2Print (automated PDF rendering) and DAM require the installation of uncertain extensions or custom programming.
Pimcore is far more than just a web content management system. It is a digital experience platform that includes DAM (digital asset management), PIM (product information management), digital commerce and a CDP (customer data platform).
Ease of integration
Incomplete APIs and limited interfaces make it necessary to adjust your processes to the software. Integration with system landscapes is difficult because not all data can be accessed by external IT applications.
APIs make integration at any time and with all systems possible. For Content-as-a-Service (CaaS) and Marketing Automation - Pimcore can adapt to your processes to make your customer experience smooth.
TYPO3 capabilities to deliver personalized digital experiences to your audiences are rudimentary and limited in its features.
Pimcore provides a native behavioral targeting engine and seamlessly integrated extensive personalization of web content.
The admin user interface of TYPO3, with its less intuitive experience and usability, can not cover its heritage of a more than 20 year old software.
Pimcore is very user-friendly and provides a context-sensitive user interface with a smooth drag-and-drop user experience. Give it a try to feel the difference :)
Every day legacy TYPO3 solutions are replaced by Pimcore
