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.

Open Orchestra is an Open Source CMS built on the full stack framework. For database it uses a MongoDB, a NoSQL store rather than the more typical Relational Databases such as MySQL or PostgreSQL.

Main advantages
  • Solid feature set beyond regular CMS features
  • Commercial backing
  • Quality codebase
  • Full Stack Symfony implementation with focus on code quality
  • NoSQL MongoDB backend allows high performance
  • Clean admin UI with drag & drop layout management
Main disvantages
  • New product version can be risky
  • Limited adoption
  • Can be too "heavy" for simple sites
  • Fairly unknown and not widely adopted
  • Quite dependent on the efforts of a single company
  • Documentation not the best (REST API, for example)
