Today, we announced an exciting step for Yext: we're now part of the MACH Alliance.
The MACH Alliance is a not-for-profit industry body that advocates for open and best-of-breed enterprise technology ecosystems. The Alliance and its members aim to educate and support the industry as a whole on what to look out for when moving from legacy infrastructure and going composable — including when, where, and how to start and select partners.
In their own words: "MACH is an industry tech standard describing modern technology. The prerequisites to achieve this standard are: Microservices based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS, and Headless. Our MACH Certification gives enterprises confidence they are choosing best-in-class vendors that can deliver future-proof technology."
This means that, after thorough evaluation, Yext meets these standards — and we're proud to be among the MACH Alliance members leading the charge to help businesses adopt this type of modern, flexible technology.
"We're excited to partner with other members of the MACH Alliance as we encourage the transition away from legacy, monolithic infrastructure to best-of-breed technology ecosystems that provide the agility to remain relevant as business strategies evolve and customer needs change," explains Marc Ferrentino, President and Chief Operating Officer at Yext. "For years, we've innovated and built our Answers Platform with robust out-of-the-box integrations and an open MACH architecture. Now we have an industry certification to prove it. Our customers can look at our membership in the MACH Alliance and confidently know that they can use Yext products with their CDP, commerce platform, business intelligence tools, and more."
