MACH to the Rescue [Infographic]
The inevitable outcome of converging technology, marketing, and customer experience trends, MACH technology enables the functionality that consumers demand and businesses need to survive in a fast-paced, omnichannel environment.
The term “MACH” was coined by a group of independent modern tech companies and inspired by the high speed at which software ecosystems must serve today’s enterprise customers.
MACH is an acronym that describes technology built upon four modern principles: microservices, API-connectivity, cloud-nativity, and headless infrastructure.
But what exactly does that mean? Let’s explore each in detail.
Microservices are lean services that perform specific tasks and are connected via API to be deployed, maintained, and scaled independently to power infinite user experiences.
Application programming interface (API) technology connects modules to create an infinitely-flexible ecosystem that can be re-constructed to be completely customer-centric, even as trends and technologies shift.
Cloud-native software is commonly delivered as a service by a third-party vendor, so it is always up to date and ready to scale with less cost and time than on-site software.
Headless architecture decouples front-end presentation and back-end logic, streamlining interoperability and enabling channel-independent and framework-agnostic content operations.
Altogether, these features add up to a MACH solution that enables businesses to keep up with the best of emerging technologies, shift operations with each new trend, and scale as needed without ever performing (another) expensive and time-consuming replatforming project.
To make sure the technology you’re adopting is MACH-enabled and future-ready, download this MACH Evaluation Checklist and learn all the critical criteria for finding a solution that makes your enterprise agile, effective, and scalable. And to learn even more about MACH, check out our infographic below that depicts how each of the cutting-edge elements of MACH come together to create the functionality that today’s businesses need to become tomorrow’s empires.
Headless API: Your key to seamless content delivery
A headless API or application programming interface helps developers interact with an application’s back-end services without any predefined user interface. Developers prefer a headless API because it promotes flexibility and innovations by decoupling the front and back-end components. The API offers the necessary raw data and functionality, helping developers to use any front-end tool or plat

Headless CMS: Intranet reimagined
A headless CMS is a CMS that separates the back-end content hub from the front-end presentation layer. It is back-end-only and API-first, enabling content delivery across multiple devices. A headless CMS is also flexible and adaptable. It is suitable for managing voice content and works with IoT devices, social media , websites, mobile apps, Etc. Headless CMS and intranet/internationa
A definitive guide to headless CMS for voice content management
A headless CMS is a CMS that separates the back end (body) from the front end (head). It is built as a content hub that allows you to manage content in one place. In a traditional CMS, those components are one and locked in silos, making it difficult to reuse content. By separating the back end (where you store content) from the front end (where you present content), a headless CMS offers the
Step into the future: Implementing headless CMS for digital displays
It is a content management system (CMS) that separates the front end (presentation layer) from the back end (content hub). A headless CMS is API-driven and allows you to organize structured content in one place for display on multiple channels, including digital signage and IoT devices . While a traditional CMS combines content, images and code, the headless architecture separates cont
