BigCommerce have joined the MACH Alliance, a newly-formed group of independent tech companies. The MACH Alliance presents and advocates for an open and best-of-breed enterprise technology ecosystem. The ecosystem technology is: Microservices based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS and Headless.
“Enterprise suites are no longer ‘the safer choice’. The MACH ecosystem is. It is agile and nimble, always up to date.”
– MACH Alliance
As part of this group, BigCommerce will work in collaboration with members to enhance education, development and adoption of composable infrastructures through microservices-based, API-first, cloud-native SaaS and headless technology and digital experiences.
“The MACH Alliance mission is a perfect reflection of our own strategy to offer merchants an open, flexible and best-of-breed platform ecosystem that can help future-proof their ecommerce business. This alignment on composable architectures was a primary reason that BigCommerce joined the MACH Alliance, and we are excited to work collaboratively alongside partners such as EPAM, E2X, Valtech and others.”
– Jimmy Duvall, chief product officer, BigCommerce
According to analyst firm Gartner, 80% of digital experiences will be deployable via headless by 2022. Since 2018, BigCommerce have enabled merchants to build scalable, content- and experience-driven digital commerce experiences through headless deployments. APIs allow for full access to the data and business logic of the BigCommerce platform, enabling merchants to connect third-party integrations, mobile applications or a front-end CMS or DXP to create a headless storefront.
Participation in the MACH Alliance will create additional opportunities for BigCommerce to advance MACH principles as the modern standard.
“BigCommerce has a clear commitment to a better way forward for IT architecture that is open and composable. That vision, which defines their own approach, is exactly where the MACH Alliance sees the future of technology heading. It is this kind of set-up that will drive the new era of tech, and it’s with great excitement that we welcome BigCommerce on board to the Alliance so we can advocate for this future-proof approach together.”
