Open Source Metadata Management

Pimcore’s highly flexible and configurable metadata management model, together with its convenient tagging module, makes your enterprise’s shift towards creating a findable and meaningful asset collection possible. Pimcore makes sure that enterprise metadata management remains easy and consistent.

Centrally Manage Metadata

Pimcore’s single-source publishing features centrally manage digital assets. Meta-information, which contains asset specifications, plays a vital role in putting the asset to its optimal use. Therefore Pimcore makes it possible to store metadata like copyright information, image descriptions or any other metadata in a central place. It provides the ability to automatically add descriptive metadata, like date of uploading and file size. It offers an easy to use tagging module, which is a shift towards findable and meaningful asset data collection. And it facilitates the defining of vocabulary and custom fields.

Manage Flexible Metadata

Be it images, videos, office document or any other file, Pimcore helps you create a variety of metadata around it. Whether it’s descriptive metadata (file type, title, keywords), administrative metadata (date created, geographic parameters, expiration dates, licensing details), technical metadata (database, glossary), process metadata (project, approver, status), or any other sort of metadata, it can be easily stored and structured with Pimcore. The metadata can be pre-configured as per the asset type in multiple languages. The metadata can also be used across the system, e.g., in the Product Information Management (PIM) and Master Data Management (MDM) module, or via Pimcore's APIs, which provide unmatched connectivity.

Extract and Display Metadata

Apart from adding additional metadata to assets, Pimcore can read and display existing metadata attached to assets according to the XMP, IPTC and EXIF standards. These standards capture embedded data about the photographer, the equipment used, the location of the photograph, into the digital media, along with other details.

Scan and Index Metadata

Pimcore's metadata management capabilities deliver extensive connectors to scan and index metadata. Pimcore's "connect anything" architecture and a holistic API driven approach enable organizations with an enormous amount of connectivity with a variety of business enterprise systems such as ERP, CRM, BI, ESBs or any other external 3rd party application. With efficient metadata scanning, tagging and storing, Pimcore makes data retrieval out of heaps of information and assets extremely simple.
