Product intro

Pimcore is a CMS whose development started in 2009. Originally the Content Management System was built on the Zend PHP Framework, but the system will switch to the Symfony full stack framework.

Drupal 8 is a partial modernisation of the legacy Drupal CMS with a few parts of Symfony under the hood. Usability improvements were not the focus and to the end user Drupal 8 is very much like Drupal 7.

Main advantages
  • Solid feature set beyond regular CMS features
  • Commercial backing
  • Quality codebase
  • Based on stable legacy with critical APIs in place
  • A large number of ready made modules (for Drupal 7)
  • Large mass of developers brings stability for purchasers
Main disvantages
  • New product version can be risky
  • Limited adoption
  • Can be too "heavy" for simple sites
  • A custom architecture based on Symfony Components, proprietary module structure
  • Usability of admin interface not very good and remains tightly coupled to Drupal
  • Suspect to security issues due to custom implementation and popularity (see Drupalgeddon)
