Language and Currencies support depending on Multi Channel MDM vs. TREX catalog
The MDM catalog provides all up-to-date product and navigation features a catalog should have, like the dynamic sorting of search results in the left hand navigation bar (price from … to, brand, colors, …).
With the MDM catalog you don’t need a physical catalog structure (from 2.0) because the catalog structure is generated logically by defined hierarchy data. There are a ton more features compared to the ECC catalog with TREX.
WCEM is optimized to manage a high volume of product data and is therefore dependent that the product catalogue data is provided in a very fast manner. MDM is an in-memory database that can do this much faster than any traditional database. However, TREX has similar in-memory capabilities.
When using the Multi Channel Catalog based on MDM the webshop provides a multiple language support within the very same webshop.
Unlike the ECC Catalog with TREX, MDM is both catalog management tool and runtime in one solution. This means the changes you make in the MDM catalog become immediately visible in the webshop, without the need of publishing the content to a separate index server.
