Composable Commerce

Your Journey to Modern Architecture

Agile, flexible and future proof

The road trip to future tech

Over the last few years, we've seen an increasing challenge for merchants to keep up with customer demands. With the rise of the mobile web and shorter innovation cycles, it's become more important than ever for merchants to have a structure in place that allows them to be agile and quick. Time to market is now a leading competitive differentiator.​

 

​Monolithic eCommerce applications, which are still used by many big retailers worldwide, have become a bottleneck for innovation. While they can be deployed all at once, they are also complex and inflexible. ​

 

There is a new approach to commerce that will help you overcome these challenges. This composable approach is based on MACH architecture and leverages your investment in your existing platforms whilst evolving your tech stack to give you agility and flexibility to future proof your business.​

What is composable commerce?

Jump start your composable enterprise

Composable commerce involves taking best of breed technologies from various vendors rather than a single vendor and composing them in a modular way to suit your business needs. Without affecting the rest of your architecture these technologies can be easily added, replaced, and removed as your business needs grow or change. 

What is MACH?

Gear up for modern commerce

Composable architecture is based on the MACH Principles. The MACH principles presented by The MACH Alliance  advocates for an open and best-of-breed enterprise technology ecosystem. The ecosystem technology is: Microservices based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS and Headless.

1. Microservices

Individual pieces of business functionality that are independently developed, deployed, and managed.
Microservices

1. API-first

All functionality is exposed through an API.​
API-first

1. Cloud-native SaaS

SaaS that leverages the cloud, beyond storage and hosting, including elastic scaling and automatically updating.
Cloud-native SaaS

1. Headless

Front-end presentation is decoupled from back-end logic and channel, programming language, and is framework agnostic.
Headless

Ready, set, go!

Are you ready for composable?

How your business transforms into a composable enterprise will depend on how far down the tech development road your company already is. If you have already embraced cloud and become headless, microservices are already a must and you’re probably further along than you realise.

 

Your first step is assessing how your current architecture structure compares to the basic MACH principles and where core composable approach will help your business most. We can help with this by performing a digital maturity assessment your digital business and benchmark you against your main competitors.

 

Once the assessment is complete, we will work with you to create a plan that works for you.

Electronik Conrad: Mehr Auswahl, geringere Prozesskosten

Vor der Einführung seines Marktplatzes bot Conrad ein rund 800.000 Artikel umfassendes Sortiment. Fünf Jahre später sind es bereits über 7 Millionen Produktangebote von mehr als 650 Herstellern und Distributoren, die ihre Ware über den Conrad Marketplace vertreiben. Bei Conrad Electronic hat man sich deshalb für ein kuratiertes Marktplatzmodell entschieden und somit das Angebot ideal auf die Kundenbedürfnisse ausgerichtet.

Douglas, einer der führenden europäischen Premium-Beauty-Händler, verzeichnete seit dem Start seines Online-Marktplatzes ein exponentielles Wachstum. Das Angebot hat sich in 2 Jahren vervielfacht und umfasst heute über 100.000 Produkte. Mit seiner Plattformstrategie bewältigte Douglas die Coronavirus-Pandemie und steigerte dank Mirakl-Technologie die Anzahl seiner Produkte und Partner erheblich.
