Technology & Architecture

Pimcore is powered by the leading technology stack on the web. It’s built on a standardized, robust, modular, open and service-oriented architecture – 100% API driven. Developers just love Pimcore, because developing awesome web applications has never been easier and faster.

Web based awesomeness

Pimcore has been built as a framework for satisfying even the most demanding developers. Based on the leading and most-up-to-date technology stack of PHP/Symfony, MySQL, Elastic Search, Mongo DB and Varnish, developers can realize demanding web applications and websites within a fraction of time.

Open architecture, leading technology

Flexible by design. Leading the benchmark for time-to-market. The open architecture provides an ideal environment for constant innovation. Adaptation can be made without re-engineering the entire system. Creating a new bundle, or revising an existing module, may be all that is required to add that new functionality. This means a turnaround of days or weeks instead of months or years. Integration to new systems is also simple, due to open APIs.
