Product Data Modeling

A data model pertains to the data, its characteristics as well as how it’s related to other data. It is also required to comprehend how to address the needs, and how to design the database for your organization. At Pimcore, we make sure product data modeling stays as flexible as possible, since this enables a PIM and MDM to grow with your organization.

Flexible Data Modeling

Multi-Lingual Data Management

Of course, our robust PIM solution works with multiple languages – actually any number of languages.

It provides the flexible data model, data editing, and translation interfaces for effectively working with product data within an international or global context.

The Pimcore administration interface is available in 20 different languages, including English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, and Chinese.

Object Relations

A flat data model– as in Excel - is rarely seen in real-life enterprise product information management.

To put real value in product data, its data model has to constantly represent the full range of attributes, relations, and specifications; and it has to adapt in real-time to changes and additions.

Object relations and the advanced concepts of field collections and objects bricks guarantee a flexible and scalable data model during the whole product lifecycle.

Classification Standards

Handling text, media, static attributes, and relationships is just the beginning of data modeling with Pimcore. The next logical step is the classification and structure assignment of product data based on industry-specific classification systems such as eCl@ss, ETIM or GS1. The Pimcore classification store is an advanced data modeling component to manage any type of classification systems.

Digital Asset Management

Product Information Management is not only text and attributes, but also unstructured data such as media assets.

Pimcore’s both platforms product information management and the fully-featured digital asset management (DAM) are seamlessly integrated to manage, integrate and relate images, graphics, documents, audio, and video.

Data Inheritance

The concept of data inheritance is key to Pimcore data modeling.

Data inheritance enables the inheritance of product data to subordinate groups within the tree.

This concept reduces the time-to-market and simplifies all editorial processes, by maintaining data just one time at one place.
