Move Aside Monoliths. Make Way for MACH®.
Why Migrate? Why Now?
Though Salesforce was once the eCommerce platform of choice for many of the world’s biggest retailers, more and more of its customers are finding that the monolithic nature of its architecture can no longer support their business goals.
Despite claims of being modern, underneath it all, Salesforce is still an all-in-one, legacy suite with limited flexibility. This forces IT departments to spend time on complicated workarounds to implement new features and improve website performance.
Salesforce's architecture is the antithesis of modern commerce. And the only way to meet the sky-high, ever-evolving expectations of today's shoppers is to completely replatform to a flexible, composable commerce solution.
Composable Commerce and MACH®
To achieve the mission of enabling every organization to truly embrace modern commerce, commercetools offers composable commerce solutions built on MACH® (Microservices-based, API-first, Cloud-native, Headless) architecture. By providing an open, flexible environment, MACH® architecture makes developing and delivering frictionless digital experiences faster, easier and risk-free.
As such, MACH® provides the foundation for composable commerce by giving you the freedom to choose best-of-breed solutions that best suit your business requirements. That way, you can expand, contract and/or replace components without dependencies or vendor lock-in. Think of composable commerce as LEGO bricks that offer infinite combinations, providing unlimited ways to customize your experiences and differentiate your business.
