Understanding MACH

MACH is a powerful framework for building modern digital architectures.

4 elements of MACH graphic

Over the last couple of decades in enterprise architecture, capabilities have typically been built using monolithic application frameworks, either hosted in the enterprise data center or a co-located data center with other organizations. These monolithic applications typically provide application functionality, transactional processing, and user interfaces.

A MACH-centric approach upends the typical monolithic structure and allows for customization, enabling businesses to build with best-of-breed platforms and flexible architectures.

MACH also enables enterprises to move organically to a more ownership-driven culture. In this model, central teams go away, but their capabilities don’t. The capabilities are devolved down to individual teams. Teams own one or more microservices from top to bottom. They define the architecture, the programming language used, and the back-end storage used. They also make the build-vs-buy decisions, test their own services and deploy and operate them independently. Just as importantly, moving to a MACH architecture enables business productivity improvements via business engagement in application development, resulting in more effective product management.
