Yesterday, the MACH Alliance – a group of independent tech companies dedicated to advocating for open, best-of-breed technology ecosystems – announced that Stripe had joined its membership ranks. This noteworthy addition brings the organization to nearly 90 members.
Stripe, a leading internet payment processing platform, is trusted by enterprises around the globe to accept payments, send payouts, and manage their businesses online. This includes leading brands like Amazon, BigCommerce, Ford, Zara, Maersk, and more.
“Stripe serves as an excellent example of a company that’s built upon a modern technical infrastructure,” said Casper Rasmussen, MACH Alliance president. “They’ll be strong champions for the Alliance across their vast network of users and partners, which will influence broader embrace of MACH across the fintech category.”
As noted in the MACH Alliance press release, organizations of all backgrounds – from startups to digital natives to traditional enterprises – require MACH principals to grow. According to its annual survey of global IT decision-makers, the inability to innovate stifles competitiveness. This is further compounded by the need to accelerate time to market. Adding Stripe to the MACH Alliance provides another trusted technology layer for building composable architectures to meet the demands of an evolving market – allowing businesses to respond to change and deliver customer experiences faster and at scale.
“MACH Alliance is enhancing the online commerce space and is a leading standard for the industry,” said Dorothy Copeland, global head of partnerships at Stripe. “Becoming a member was an obvious choice – many existing Alliance members are already Stripe users and partners, which demonstrates the importance of this ecosystem to accelerate digital experiences."
The Stripe announcement comes as the MACH Alliance begins its MACH Two Conference in Amsterdam. The event – dubbed “Art and Science” – offers two days with expert practitioners and C-suite leaders as they discuss the future of composable technology. Speakers from the Lego Group, Harry Rosen, and other respected industry brands will provide insight through their successful MACH and composable use cases. The conference will also feature MACH technology ISVs and system integrators from the Alliance member community building MACH and composable solutions.
The MACH Alliance is a [501(c)(6)] non-profit organization, governed by an independent board and does not endorse specific vendors, members or otherwise.
