The MACH Alliance

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. 

Manifesto

What we want to do is:

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

Modern technology has evolved, enabling new ways to think about and do business. That’s why we've started the MACH Alliance - to help companies take advantage of the most innovative and flexible enterprise technologies available and to break the release cycle. This is clearly a paradigm shift.
