NHN Godo is the 24th member to join the Alliance.

“We are thrilled to welcome the first company from Asia to the MACH Alliance,” says Kelly Goetsch, President of the MACH Alliance. “Asia is in several ways ahead of Europe and North-America having leap-frogged many of the incumbent systems European and North-American organizations had in place. With this new membership and geographical expansion, we are scaling out the global community of modern, open and interoperable enterprise technology and marking an important milestone to our mission.”

MACH combines the latest IT trends with a "Microservice architecture" that allows shopping malls to run independently, ▲an "API-driven design" that increases development scalability, ▲a "cloud native SaaS" based on cloud environments, and ▲a "headless" technology that can manage shopping malls quickly and flexibly. When MACH technology is applied to shopping mall solutions, customers can flexibly respond to traffic concentrated at a specific time without the cost of large-scale development, and freely change and upgrade various functions and designs with the use of shopping mall function options.

NHN Godo is a leading SaaS provider in South Korea and Japan, dedicated to providing ease-of-use functionalities and customizations to merchants of all sizes. NHN Godo obtained MACH certification through the shopping mall solution 'shop by'. "Shop by," a solution that applies MACH technology, has led the domestic market based on its strengths such as flexibility, scalability, speed, and openness

"Because the concept of MACH technology is not only a shopping mall but also a big way to develop IT in the future," NHN Godo’s CEO, Lee Yoon-sik, said. "The acquisition of MACH certificate means that the shop by has been recognized as an international top technology in the E-commerce industry. It is planning to upgrade the domestic shopping mall solution market to a global level by applying new technologies to solutions quickly.”
