The “MACH” standing for Microservices-based, API-first, Cloud-native, and Headless was inspired by the urgent need to provide IT solutions that will be an answer for customer expectations that are changing at breakneck speed.
The rapid dynamic is visible in eCommerce in particular, where MACH-based solutions can be adopted relatively quickly, bringing measurable benefits; however, they should not be considered commerce-only solutions. MACH is more of a new way of thinking about building software than a sector-related tool.
The MACH Alliance presents and advocates for an open and best-of-breed enterprise technology ecosystem. The ecosystem technology is:
Lightning Fast Front-End as a Service for eCommerce. Built with a PWA and headless approach, using a modern JS stack, Vue Storefront provides shopping experiences like native apps and boosts site performance and customization possibilities. VSF is the fastest-growing frontend project in the world, supported by an active community of open-source enthusiasts.
It works straight out of the box and connects to any backend. We have custom integrations with Magento, commercetools, Shopware and Shopify, and total coverage is just a matter of time. The API approach also allows you to merge VSF with any third-party tool like CMS, payment gateways or analytics. With no license and vendor lock-in, the sky is the limit: build what you like and you’ll always own your site.
