BigCommerce Joins MACH Alliance to Propel Growth of Composable Tech Infrastructure
Independent group drives advocacy of modern approach to enterprise ecommerce business solutions through microservices, API-first, cloud-native SaaS and headless experiences
BigCommerce, a leading Open SaaS ecommerce platform for fast-growing and established brands, announced it has joined the MACH Alliance, a newly-formed group of independent tech companies dedicated to advocating for an open, best-of-breed technology ecosystem for enterprise ecommerce solutions. As part of this group, BigCommerce will work in collaboration with members to enhance education, development and adoption of composable infrastructures through microservices-based, API-first, cloud-native SaaS and headless technology and digital experiences.
“The MACH Alliance mission is a perfect reflection of our own strategy to offer merchants an open, flexible and best-of-breed platform ecosystem that can help future-proof their ecommerce business,” said Jimmy Duvall, chief product officer at BigCommerce. “This alignment on composable architectures was a primary reason that BigCommerce joined the MACH Alliance, and we are excited to work collaboratively alongside partners such as EPAM, E2X, Valtech and others.”
According to analyst firm Gartner, “by 2022, 80 percent of digital experience platforms will be deployable in a hybrid headless fashion.” Since 2018, BigCommerce has enabled merchants to build scalable, content- and experience-driven digital commerce experiences through headless deployments. APIs allow for full access to the data and business logic of the BigCommerce platform, enabling merchants to connect third-party integrations, mobile applications or a front-end CMS or DXP to create a headless storefront. Participation in the MACH Alliance will create additional opportunities for BigCommerce to advance MACH principles as the modern standard.

“BigCommerce has a clear commitment to a better way forward for IT architecture that is open and composable,” said Sonja Kotrotsos, vice president of the MACH Alliance. “That vision, which defines their own approach, is exactly where the MACH Alliance sees the future of technology heading. It is this kind of set-up that will drive the new era of tech, and it’s with great excitement that we welcome BigCommerce on board to the Alliance so we can advocate for this future-proof approach together.”
