The goal of being able to compose e-commerce technologies in the sense of composable commerce and according to the principle of best-of-breed, or best-fit, and to be able to reorganise them flexibly at any time is best achieved by companies with a MACH strategy. MACH is an acronym for modern technology concepts that together form the basis for 100 per cent adaptive commerce: Microservices, API-First, Cloud-native and Headless. The central challenge of technically implementing the system change in e-commerce is to choose the right strategy for a transition from the old system to the new cloud-based architecture that is as fast and risk-free as possible. Here, a complete new development (“greenfield”) and step-by-step transformation can be considered.
Replatforming according to the principle of the “Strangler Pattern”, in which existing services and functions are gradually transferred to a new environment, has proven itself in many projects as a low-risk alternative to building a new system. eCube supports planning and implementation.
