MACH Architecture

How we create tomorrow's digital solutions based on MACH principles

How can MACH architecture support your business?

For digital decision-makers, the pace of change can be extremely high. Companies need to act, react, and scale faster than ever before, requiring a great deal of agility in the company's tech stack.

Sooner or later, companies will find that their current digital ecosystem doesn't deliver the desired customer experience or support the desired business models. Or perhaps your company faces radically new customer demands, a merger/acquisition, or a disruptive competitor in your sales channels - all situations where the company needs to respond quickly in the digital realm.

At Novicell, we find that companies are increasingly trapped in a rigid digital platform. The consequences of this can be numerous and quite severe for some. This is where MACH architecture and the use of its principles can help ensure that you are prepared for future changes and can implement solutions more rapidly. MACH architecture represents a paradigm shift away from traditional monolithic solutions. Agile companies, instead, break down their large solutions into smaller and more specialized "best-of-breed" platforms that support the actual needs of the business.

Novicell is a member of the MACH Alliance

Novicell, has been admitted to the MACH Alliance, as the first Danish-owned consulting firm, The MACH Alliance is an international technology alliance and a non-profit organization that advocates for companies to build their IT architecture on open and the best technological ecosystems. In the MACH Alliance, we are a global community of technology providers and system integrators, all aiming to change the way companies buy and develop digital solutions in the future.

- Instead of choosing one solution, where there is a high risk of choosing the wrong one, the alliance supports decoupling the systems and Instead putting together your solution from the best, specialised solutions from around the world based on the business needs you have. As an advisor, you will only be accepted into the MACH Alliance if you have shown that you know how to work in this way.

What lies behind the MACH principles?

MACH architecture is built on specific principles that support building a digital landscape using best-of-breed platforms. By constructing the architecture according to MACH principles, you ensure that the components of the solution can each be upgraded, updated, replaced, or seamlessly integrated with each other through APIs.

    Microservices are self-contained applications that can be built, deployed and maintained as independent modular components. If there is a failure in one microservice, it does not affect your entire solution, making it more robust. Scaling and updating each component can be done independently instead of having to upgrade the entire system.

    APIs enable integration between different solutions such as ERP and CRM in your technology suite. API-first is designed and built for interoperation, reducing the chance of silos.

  • cloud and setting icon


    Using the cloud as a hosting infrastructure means that solutions can be easily accessed from anywhere and on-demand. Eliminates the need to operate and maintain your own data centre. Provides extra flexibility - when it's time to scale up or update.
