Mach Two Conference

13 & 14 June / Amsterdam — MACH TWO Conference

The MACH Alliance

The MACH Alliance is a not-for-profit industry body that advocates for open and best-of-breed enterprise technology ecosystems. The Alliance aims to educate and support the industry as a whole on what to look out for when moving from legacy infrastructure and going composable, including when, where and how to start and select partners. Our role is more important than ever as adoption of MACH continues apace. The Alliance is a vendor-neutral institution that provides resources, education and guidance through industry experts to support companies on their journey.

MACH is an industry tech standard describing modern technology. The prerequisites to achieve this standard are: Microservices based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS and Headless. Our MACH Certification gives enterprises confidence they are choosing best-in-class vendors that can deliver future-proof technology.

MACH is also increasingly a global community of people exploring the alternative to older systems that do not offer the agility the business requires, and experts who have been through the entire transition already. The latter group - true leaders who transform businesses - come together as MACH Alliance Ambassadors. Our Ambassadors are with companies who have been through a transformation. Based on their experience and learnings they advocate for education and adoption of MACH globally.



"Future proof enterprise technology and propel current and future digital experiences"

Customer expectations are disrupting every market, and traditional enterprise technology suites can’t keep up. The MACH Alliance presents and advocates for composable, truly open and future-proof best-of-need architecture - microservices-based, API-first, cloud-native SaaS, and headless. It exists to protect MACH core principles, as the gatekeeper to ensuring MACH as a category is understood and not undermined by vendor ‘MACH-washing’. Our members are invited on that journey with us, helping support agile, nimble businesses ready to take advantage of the latest innovations as they emerge.

The New Approach to TCO for Digital Commerce

TCO is a crucial measure for organizations looking to make informed decisions about their investments. By accounting for all the costs associated with a product or service, TCO aims to provide a comprehensive view of the financial impact of a decision. In today's cost-scrutinized business environment, including TCO in your decision criteria is more important than ever.

MACH Global Research 2023 Blog Series Pt. 3: Adapting To An Evolving Landscape

In March, we released the results of our third annual global IT decision maker research, which surveyed 500 tech leaders from Australia, France, Germany, UK and the US. We sought to understand how MACH investment has accelerated over the past 12 months and what impact that is having on organizations’ ability to thrive in a difficult economy. We’re publishing a four part blog series to dive further into each of the four key research areas within the report.

What is an Experience Data Platform and how can it fast-forward your composable/MACH journey?

The MACH/Composable movement has gained great momentum in the last years and during 2023 Gartner predicts that 60% of companies will seek composability in their tech investments to gain speed and agility. With a composable approach to the technology stack, companies can quickly adopt changes and meet the evolving needs of customers. A composable approach involves breaking down the technology stack into modular, reusable components that can be easily assembled and reassembled to meet changing business needs. Using this approach, companies can easily add or remove components as needed, without disrupting the entire system.
