Digital commerce transformation: A journey to composable architecture

In the dynamic world of digital commerce, the landscape has transformed dramatically over the past two decades. From monolithic systems that offered comprehensive solutions but lacked adaptability, to the rise of microservices and headless architectures, businesses have sought more flexible and customer-centric solutions. Enter MACH and Composable Architecture—a transformative approach that offers unparalleled flexibility and scalability in the modern market.

In this comprehensive white paper, you’ll discover everything you need to know about adopting a composable architecture.

Evolution of commerce architecture

The journey began with monolithic e-commerce platforms, evolved into microservices, and embraced headless architecture to cater to omnichannel demands. However, the true innovation came with the emergence of the composable MACH architecture—a framework built on Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native, and Headless principles.

Understanding MACH and composable

Learn about the foundations of MACH architecture:

  • Microservices: Breaks down systems into independent components for rapid development and scaling.
  • API-First: Ensures that all platform features are exposed through APIs, offering freedom and flexibility.
  • Cloud-Native: Leverages cloud computing principles for efficiency, scalability, and innovation.
  • Headless: Separates front-end from back-end for adaptable and tailored user experiences.
  • Composable: Allows businesses to assemble modular building blocks to create unique and personalized solutions.

Driving adoption: Technology enablers

Technological advancements such as serverless computing, modern frontends, GraphQL, event-driven architectures, infrastructure-as-code, and edge computing have paved the way for MACH adoption.
