Revolutionize Your Data Migration Process

Migrating data manually between a PIM system and a digital commerce platform can take several hundred hours, depending on the volume of information. The manual process also caries the risk of human error. The Vaimo PIM Connector revolutionizes the process and empowers businesses to migrate their product data automatically.

With the push of a button, the adapter converts your PIM data model into a commercetools project where product data will be available within minutes. The Vaimo PIM Connector is ready-to-use for your storefront, social media, dashboards, and any applications in your existing and future composable landscape.


The Vaimo PIM Connector is our first MACH alliance microservice that joins Akeneo PIM with the commercetools platform for a seamless product data migration. Digital merchants can use this as the keystone to composing and it’s as easy as joining two building blocks.

The Vaimo PIM Connector is a microservice, or a small, independently deployable component or service that is loosely coupled. Microservices fall under the umbrella term of MACH architecture, an acronym that stands for Microservices-based, API-first, Cloud-native, and Headless. Mach architecture is an approach that fuels modern ecommerce businesses with the agility and control needed to meet customers.

The principles together support a flexible and modular ecosystem that empowers a business to add and subtract components like building blocks.

  • Microservices: Independently functioning services or systems that are each responsible for a certain function
  • API-First: Microservices use Application Programming Interfaces, or API’s, to communicate with each other
  • Cloud-native: Cloud-native applications provide better scalability, faster development, and better flexibility without the burden of maintaining persona servers
  • Headless: The concept of decoupling the frontend, or user interface, from the backend
