Comparison of Pimcore and Akeneo

PIM system is a master system for managing products. It allows managing the rules of content addition and the display of product information, as well as the display of information in different channels, with regard to their specifics. It is part of the company's IT contour that is tightly integrated with other systems.

We are experts in Akeneo and Pimcore integration.

In Pimcore, any data can be structured, supplemented, imported, and exported via standardized APIs (content as a service). Pimcore is a unified MDM system with an opportunity of complex attribute inheritance and of creating any entities apart from products — customers, price variations with the conversion option, etc.
Akeneo allows you to manage products using the entity–attribute–value model. Instead of multi-level hierarchies for product families, Akeneo supports single-level hierarchies. Akeneo web interface does not provide access to data model settings.

Flexibility

Pimcore
Akeneo PIM
In addition to PIM, Pimcore offers Web content Management (WCM), digital Asset Management (DAM), as well as CDP and CMS.
Akeneo does not offer anything except for a PIM system for enterprises; other functions can be installed upon your request.
Pimcore offers personalization functionalities in the CMS, which can automatically customise parts of content based on user behaviors. Pimcore increases user engagement using user information that is based on behavior and profile and is collected via web and business analytics.
Since the Akeneo system is exclusively restricted to PIM, it does not give personalized information about the user. Nevertheless, it integrates with Avail, RichRelevance, Prediggo, Endeca, and Fredhopper.

Offer

Personalization
Pimcore can integrate any amount and type of digital data regardless of its volume or industry. Manageable approach to API ensures linking to corporate CRM, ERP, ESB, BI systems or third-party applications. Support for integration endpoints is provided for all types of connections.
Akeneo offers an ecosystem of integrators — specialized "adapters" for easy integration with any product-related data sources. Akeneo only supports file import and export from/to Excel and CSV. There is no integration endpoint support for setting up connections to Java Message queues and quick access folders.
Due to the Pimcore Open Source, the system has unlimited scalability.
Like Pimcore, Akeneo is also open source, and its scalability is not limited.

Specifications

Pimcore — low-code open-source платформа. Помимо PIM и MDM решения, в Pimcore есть CMS, e-Commerce и DAM элементы, которые позволяют хранить всю информацию о продуктах.

Personalization

Businesses can easily manage customer data in Pimcore by collecting information about purchases and product views, and then use this data to automate certain marketing activities. Pimcore makes it easy to sort out and filter data.
Akeneo helps you create consistent products for different channels and regions. This helps decrease time to market, though does not affect the marketing automation. Since there is only one level in the product hierarchy, filtering a list of values by product family is not performed.

Customer data management

WHEN A PIM SYSTEM IS REQUIRED?

Complex product variations
Manufacture of goods
Omnichannel
Marketplace
The more variations of the same product you have (colors, materials, sizes, etc.), the harder it is to monitor the filling in of product cards. XLS files help speeding up operators' work, but they are no longer sufficient.

Solution
The provision of uniform rules for products in one place allows you to speed up the fill-in and reliability control of product information and a specialized interface helps "beating the Excel".

Complex product variations

You enter a large amount of product information (if you are, for example, a manufacturer or a trading company).

Solution
The PIM system consolidates, coordinates, and provides a user-friendly interface that helps operators manage product information, which later on becomes available on other sources and your clients can find it online in the formats suitable for the upload to their IT systems.

Manufacture of goods

For different types of products there can be different types of channels. Each channel requires a unique format of sales presentations. Marketing should manage this information in a centralized way.

Solution
PIM / PXM systems provide an opportunity of the centralized management of different channels, with the same verification rules applied and with regard to particularities of channels, regions, and languages.

Omnichannel

Imagine there are tens of sources, with hundreds of parameters in each. They have different data structure, descriptions, and attribute names.

Solution
PIM aligns information from different sources. Common rules are set and a flexible system for matching parameters is provided. All sources of product information are processed centrally.

Objective
The customer wanted to improve the process of product data management on their B2B portal. Although SAP integration with EPIM had been configured earlier, the access to the holding's shared storage with product information was restricted. We came up with a solution that allowed integrating Akeneo PIM, SAP, and the B2B portal, based on partial data upload, not affecting the restricted part of the storage.
