MACH architecture is all about decoupling the front and back-end for more flexibility, and it doesn’t end there. Each component of Enactor software is comprised of composable commerce, which reduces costs for the retailer by eliminating the need for a third-party or software vendor to get involved in modifications. All internal IT teams can make changes and customisations quickly to the platform using Enactor Microservices and the Enactor Toolkit.
Having this unprecedented independence and flexibility to react quickly to customer and market changes is critical to succeeding in today’s retail market.
There are several legacy software companies that claim their services to be MACH-based but it’s difficult for a retailer to validate their claims. Being a member of the MACH Alliance gives software vendors like Enactor professional recognition for their MACH approach and standards that retailers can trust.
The ‘Enterprise MACHified’ study reports some good news with a 19% increase in companies moving away from outdated systems to best-of-breed vendors like Enactor. A further 79% of tech leaders in companies plan to increase their investments in MACH-certified services next year.
