Delivering Technical Excellence and Digital Solutions with Sitecore CMS
By Lee Pittman
When discussing digital solutions, we often focus on the beautiful and engaging content that drives visitors to become loyal customers. However, a sound technology foundation is required to provide businesses with the tools to create innovative content experiences and keep up with customer expectations.
How can companies today achieve this?
Agility and adaptability are now critical for modern enterprise organizations. Platforms like Sitecore include a MACH foundation that can arm technical teams with the necessary capabilities to drive business results. MACH architecture is a technology ecosystem that is Microservices-based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS, and Headless.
In this third installment of our Sitecore Symposium series, I’ll detail each of these components and explain how they can fuel technical excellence.
Unlike the rigid monolithic structures of the past, software applications are designed and deployed as independent services. This modular approach removes the single point of failure that can plague many enterprise systems and allow businesses to swap out underperforming technologies for new ones if they are so inclined.
Being API First
In order to connect the data that flows between these different microservices, software applications need APIs. But API-first isn’t just about adding on APIs after the fact but designing and building the solution to leverage APIs from the start. Ultimately, this provides faster and smoother integrations throughout the tech stack.
Cloud Native Software
The days of hosting the entire tech stack on-premises are long gone. Now, cloud-native SaaS applications can use the cloud for more than just hosting. They also provided the added benefits of increased speed and scalability to cope with the traffic demands while maintaining uptime and performance.
By following MACH principles, enterprises can have at their disposal the capability to swap out software tools to fit their unique requirements. Moreover, the benefits of being future-proof and adaptable enable organizations to achieve technical excellence, be faster to market, and delight customers.
