    In Pimcore X, with the use of the Symfony 5 PHP framework the developers are able to create solutions much faster. 

    Further, the removal of major obsolete legacy code has brought greater code quality at the same time ensuring backward compatibility.

    The Pimcore 6 Community Edition version officially reached its end-of-life cycle. The final release was Pimcore 6.9.6 as of June 23, 2021. 

    Now this means there will be no further updates or security patches available. Further, Pimcore will not accept any code contribution either for this version.

    So, it is advised to upgrade to Pimcore X as it may expose your business to a security risk.  

    NOTE – The PHP templating engine or REST web services that you might be using are not supported in Pimcore X.

    Pimcore Data Importer

    The Pimcore allows customers to manage huge product data records. The new data tool significantly helps in helps in the faster exchange of data. 

    The import function allows the import of data from other sources and mapping it with the other Pimcore data objects based on the configured mapping. Hence no need of writing even a single line of code.


    Pimcore Product Experience Portal 

    Moreover, the use of the Pimcore X product experience is enriched by providing real-time product information in consumer-facing PIM portals. 

    It provides multiple capabilities that are explained in brief in the below sections.


    Product search and Filtering

    To fetch the right product information within seconds is important. The Pimcore Product Experience Portal has an Elasticsearch-based full-text search engine that is fast.

    The multi-level search technology with variable filters gives proper search results. Auto-suggest, type-ahead, and stored searches, as well as sharing functions, help to increase overall efficiency.

    Download and Sharing 

    The configurable download manager organises the data as a CSV, XML, or JSON file, allowing third-party applications to process the same.

    Further, the sharing options have many settings that can be configured which include expiration date, relevant media asset file types, resolutions, and watermarking.

    Further, certain terms and conditions must be agreed upon before the material is accessed. The sharing dashboard gives you a real-time snapshot of all active shares so you don’t lose track.

    Added Security

    The Product Experience Portal is built around security and access control, permissions, roles, and internal/external users.

    Define data-pool or user-level access to product information and media assets. All prominent SSO providers are compatible with user authentication.


    Reports and Analytics

    With the integrated Pimcore Analytics Explorer, you can visually build and configure reports and data on the fly.

    Save personalised reports and statistics for later use. Even share the data you’ve analysed with others. To help you save time, the Pimcore Product Experience Portal includes a number of pre-built reports.

    Improvements for User & Agencies  

    The new Editor makes personalizing the data view very simple. It provides user-defined views set up for different groups inside the firm.
