Magento Open Source

Magento Open Source is well suited for small or medium-sized businesses who don't have a lot of money or time to start their online store. If our web design client can select a specific pre-made template beforehand, and they do not want a ton of complex or extremely specific functionalities, then we suggest Magento Open Source to the client. If the client is a large retailer wanting very specific features, then OpenCart or complete custom code might be a better choice.

Pimcore

Pimcore is especially suitable for an organization that has a complex data model and processes that cannot be met easily with out of the box systems. It is especially helpful where data is lying in multiple legacy systems and needs complex integrations with these systems.It may not be the best choice for someone looking for and out of the box system with predefined features.

Pros

Magento Open Source

  • Magento 2 CE has a very robust document workflow which mirrors most mid-large ERP systems. There's a "papertrail" which mimics your business processes, and each part of the process is exposed to the API which makes for some great integration potential.
  • Magento 2 CE is also great for tracking customer history, saves a record for each and allows you to understand customer interests better.
  • Magento 2 CE is highly expandable, with a full marketplace of free and premium modules that should accomplish some pretty niche sales or service goals.

Pimcore

  • Pimcore is fully opensource and based on leading Symfony, the leading PHP framework. It has a well-developed partner network and community support.
  • In contrast to other systems that have a quite rigid architecture Pimcore is designed as a platform for developers. It can be used to model complex data architecture with ease and develop features tailored to customer needs.
  • It provides a fully integrated platform for Product Information Management, Digital Asset Management, and Enterprise Content Management. This ensures there is no duplication of assets and content and data across multiple systems.
  • All PIM features are also available through a REST-based Web Service allowing easy integration with other applications.
  • In addition to PIM, DAM and WCM features it also provides a robust eCommerce platform.

Cons

Magento Open Source

  • Not the simplest of solutions to use or maintain from an end-user perspective
  • Other platforms are better with regards to SEO in our experience
  • Fairly sluggish and slow compared to other platforms without the correct server specification and performance optimization work.
David Bryan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pimcore

  • Pimcore is not intended to be used as an out of the box system but as a platform. Hence non-technical users take some time to get started with it.

It's the dominant force in the SMB open source market. With the continued support of eBay/PayPal, Magento will continue to evolve and should be a market leader for some time.

Alternatives Considered

Magento Open Source

Magento is hands down better than any hosted platform (i.e., BC), but only if you have a good development team. Hosted platforms are very limiting as to what you can accomplish "outside the box." Magento is much better than WooCommerce in its user friendliness and its feature set.

Return on Investment

Magento Open Source

  • It definitely let us start with a decent store and scale from 0 to 15,000 products without many performance issues. But that comes with a cost: we were unable to change the design of the checkout, SEO was poor, and adding banners or more store-related things was very time consuming.
  • Debugging is hard and you will break your head with some errors that break your store, and you don't know how to solve them. This was one of the reasons why we left it.

Pimcore

  • With the customers we have worked with, Pimcore has quite a positive impact on ROI.
  • Pimcore systems have helped customers not only integrate their data but also improved data quality, greatly reduced their time to market and turn around time.
