The MACH principles
The philosophy behind MACH architecture is rooted in the idea that businesses require agility to cater to the ever-evolving needs of their customers. MACH combines Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native, and Headless technologies to provide an open and modular environment for businesses to seamlessly adapt and respond to change with best-of-breed solutions.
Microservices are a software development methodology that involves breaking down complex applications into small, independently deployable services.
API-first prioritises designing the application programming interface (API) before implementing the rest of the software, ensuring that the API meets the needs of users and can be easily integrated with other systems.
Cloud-native refers to an approach that leverages the cloud computing infrastructure to build and deploy applications that are scalable, resilient and adaptable to changing business needs.
Headless refers to the decoupling of the front-end and back-end of an application allowing for greater flexibility and freedom in designing the user interface.
