Ideally suited for complex e-commerce systems


E-commerce for uncompromising performance

commercetools is a pioneer of the MACH movement in e-commerce and consistently implements its principles. The acronym MACH stands for Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native and Headless – and describes a fusion of modern technology principles.

This makes commercetools suitable for sophisticated, transaction-based operator models in e-commerce that represent much more than a just standard store. Whenever speed of action, functional uncompromisingness, rapid development and efficient operation are required, commercetools is the best solution.

How does commercetools work?

Optimally suited for ambitious medium-sized and large businesses

The era of monoliths is coming to an end. This explains why the vast majority of software vendors want to follow the path of MACH principles. It is the right path – and while it means a significant break in development, it is worth it in the end. commercetools was the initiator and thus also the pioneer of the MACH movement and has therefore accumulated unrivalled expertise.

From the very beginning, commercetools has followed the microservice approach and planned and implemented the functional architecture accordingly. The same applies to efficient data exchange using an API-first approach. To remain scalable in resource-intensive processes, a cloud-native solution was integrated. In addition, the headless approach was introduced that separates the frontend and backend at an early stage. This allowed complementary areas to develop in the best possible and coordinated way.

All in all, the integral combination of the different technologies offers numerous advantages over solution concepts based on just one of these building blocks.
