I enjoy advocating for new enterprise-class technology based on microservices, APIs, cloud-powered SaaS solutions, and Headless CMS. I feel that this approach along with Kontent allows everyone to get the most out of their investments in technology.

Why MACH is the future of e-commerce

MACH architecture is especially suitable for large scale e-commerce projects with complex requirements. Companies need to ensure that they can quickly implement innovations and integrate best-of-breed tools (such as Shopify, Magento, Slatwall Commerce, or commercetools) into their tech stacks to be able to respond to the rapidly changing e-commerce industry. Their website architecture must evolve away from the monolithic model to a structure of interchangeable components.

MACH architecture is the way to go if you’re building a modern platform. It has all the right ingredients to succeed—both in terms of business value and technical prowess.

What benefits the MACH architecture brings

A few benefits of the MACH architecture include:

  • The ability to use microservices allows businesses to build applications quickly, easily, and within budget.
  • The ability to scale means that enterprises can grow their business without having to worry if they are being held back by the technology they use.
  • Adaptability was built into MACH from its inception, making it easier for organizations to respond quickly to change—whether that’s changing customer preferences, evolving market dynamics, or competitive threats.
  • By creating modern and more responsive applications and websites, enterprises can provide a better experience for their customers, which helps build loyalty and increases revenues.
