Join our breakout session at Modern Commerce Day 2021 where you can ask our experts all of your MACH related questions.

With so much discussion about the benefits of MACH (microservices, API-first, cloud-native and headless) technologies, it might be easy to assume that everyone is following the same route to modern architectures. Whilst many are indeed seeing the transformative power of this new commerce trend, many others are just starting out on the journey.  

Is MACH right for your business? Do you need advice on how to make the transition to this new way of working? How do you make sure that you get the most value from your tech decisions in the coming years?  

Ask the expert yourself at our breakout session “Is MACH right for you? Ask our Experts!” at Modern Commerce Day, Wednesday 16th June 2021.  


Pascal Lagarde, Valtech’s SVP Commerce, and Dirk Hoerig, Commercetools Founder and CEO will be answering all of your MACH related questions at an exclusive virtual breakout session at 13.45 GMT during Modern Commerce Day 2021. You will also hear from other peers during this session who are most likely facing similar challenges to you. There are only 30 limited spaces available for the breakout session so be sure to register to secure your place and to ensure your questions get answered!  

Pascal will also be featuring as a panelist at the ‘Digital Transformation at the speed of MACH’ discussion taking place earlier in the day.
