Pimcore recognized as "Cool Vendor" by Gartner

Pimcore, a leader in the realm of open-source data and customer experience management, has been named in Gartner's prestigious, "Cool Vendors in Digital Commerce" 2018 report.

Pimcore is one amongst five companies in the digital commerce space, bestowed with the "Cool Vendor" tag, famously known for recognizing firms treading a uniquely innovative path.

Pimcore is primarily featured due to its exceptional ability to deploy open-source ecosystem that can help consolidate digital assets and product information, provide customer experience management, in addition to commerce capabilities.

“We are thrilled to be included in Gartner’s latest Cool Vendors in Digital Commerce report,” said the visibly delighted, CEO of Pimcore, Dietmar Rietsch. He further added, “Our vision is to create outstanding solutions for solving even the most complex digital transformation challenges by providing a software platform for data and customer experience management, including digital commerce. We strongly believe in the flexibility and innovation power of the open-source ecosystem. That’s also the reason why Pimcore is open-source and free of charge. Being an official Gartner “Cool Vendor” strongly verifies our strategy and makes us proud.”

The report emphatically iterates how Pimcore is a one-of-a-kind vendor, that arms companies with features not often expected from commerce platforms. Its dependable technology architecture enables firms to leverage its capabilities, attain a measurable advantage over their competitors and get the user experience they desire.

The report also draws attention to the fact that software sales or licensing costs are not Pimcore's source of revenue. In fact, Pimcore's open-source edition comes with a downloadable and a modifiable source code, which can be deployed to bring an initial project to life.

Citing examples of trailblazers such as Amazon and Netflix that have relied on open-source technology to excel in customer experience, the report also touched upon the infinite possibilities of innovation open source presents.

Having released its latest version Pimcore 5 powered by Symfony Framework 3 in September 2017, Pimcore has significantly upped its ante by creating an advanced, future-proof platform.
