MACH Alliance

The MACH Alliance founded by commercetools, Contentstack, EPAM Systems, and Valtech is a non-profit organization aimed to share knowledge of the benefits brought by vendor-neutral, modular software ecosystems.

“We believe in “Transform by Doing”. The MACH architecture enables us to build and run solutions that are less of a compromise to our clients. MACH solutions can reduce time to first value significantly and are much more adaptable to the ever evolving business needs and customer expectations.
Auke van Urk
Advisory Board Member to the MACH Alliance and Chief Technology Officer at Valtech.

The companies joined in the MACH Alliance share believe that this approach to building software is the best possible way to meet the challenges faced by the eCommerce industry today. Why?


MACH technologies give companies the flexibility of building IT ecosystems in a LEGO-like way. By composing them freely from the solutions that suit them best, businesses can make quick changes in certain parts of their architecture with no worries about the integrity and stability of the entire system.

The acronym "MACH" stands for:

Microservices-based

API-first

Cloud-native

Headless

"We want to be at the forefront of the trend, as the core concept and vision of Vue Storefront from the very beginning was aligned with what we all are trying to achieve here.  I strongly believe that a close collaboration between all of the MACH alliance members can have a significant impact and bring a lot of good to the eCommerce industry"
Patrick Friday
CEO at Vue Storefront
