What is MACH?

MACH is an acronym that stands for Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native, and Headless. It is a set of principles and technologies that together provide a modern, flexible, and scalable approach to building digital experiences and commerce solutions.

Principles of MACH

Here is an explanation of each of the MACH principles:

  • Microservices: Applications are built as a set of smaller, independent services that work together to form the overall solution.
  • API-first: A software development approach where the design and development process starts with designing and building the application programming interface (API) before other components.
  • Cloud-native: Software or application architectures are designed and optimized specifically to run in cloud environments.
  • Headless: The frontend and backend of a commerce solution are decoupled.
