The MACH Alliance is a not-for-profit industry body that advocates for open and best-of-breed enterprise technology ecosystems. The Alliance aims to educate and support the industry as a whole on what to look out for when (planning to) moving from legacy infrastructure and going composable, including when, where and how to start and select partners. The Alliance is a vendor-neutral institution that provides resources, education and guidance through industry experts to support companies on their journey.
MACH is an industry tech standard describing modern technology. The prerequisites to achieve this standard are: Microservices based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS and Headless. Our MACH Certification gives enterprises confidence they are choosing best-in-class vendors that can deliver future-proof technology.
MACH is also increasingly a global community of people starting to look at the alternative to older systems that do not offer the agility the business requires, and experts who have been through the entire transition already. The latter group - true leaders who transform businesses - come together as MACH Alliance Ambassadors. The MACH Ambassadors are happy to speak about their learnings, and offer impartial direction to new-comers.
The MACH Alliance was founded in June 2020 and was referred to as ‘The Coolest Tech in Town Club’ by Forrester a year later. The MACH Alliance has companies and individuals as members:
• over 50 member companies in three categories: vendors, system integrators and enablers.
• Ambassadors are individual expert members and have no ties to any of the member companies.
