Going full MACH

The advantages of moving to MACH in overcoming the challenges that retailers face are adding up. Individually, each MACH component has become an important software development trend. When combined, they provide a dynamic system that delivers speed, flexibility, and customization that outpaces legacy systems.

Why enterprise ecommerce needs to adopt MACH

Another aspect of the MACH architecture is the use of headless technology to provide more freedom for developers through headless commerce. By decoupling the backend logic from the frontend user experience, new user interfaces can be created to enhance the customer experience while shopping.
