MACH Impact Awards 2023
The MACH Impact Awards, brought to you by the MACH Alliance, are the only awards honoring the most globally innovative and impactful technology projects that utilize a MACH (microservices-based, API-first, Cloud native SaaS, Headless) strategy.
Through the MACH Impact Awards, we aim to raise awareness of the real difference these projects are making in solving complex technical problems and creating measurable business value. We’re putting future-proof solutions in the spotlight!
These awards are evaluated by an independent panel and each award is judged on the project outcomes using MACH technologies to achieve or exceed objectives.
The awards are open to all brands and vendor companies that have completed a substantial part of a MACH implementation project over the past 12 months. Repeat entries from last year will not be considered unless the entrant can show substantial updates to the project over the past 12 months.
Closing date for entries: May 15th
Representatives and influencers from across the global MACH community will be attending MACH TWO in Amsterdam where the awards winners will be announced on June 13th.
Winning entries will demonstrate the business value of the project, and how MACH was crucial in delivering better/faster value over other options to deliver the required outcomes.
