Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery was recently able to talk to Gireesh Sahukar, vice president of digital, Dawn Foods, Jackson, MI, about Dawn's new eCommerce site.
Liz Parker: How did Dawn Foods undergo a digital transformation for its eCommerce site?
Gireesh Sahukar: At Dawn, being a good partner to our customers is at the forefront of everything we do. With that, we started with considering how to approach our new eCommerce solution given a few important observations. Those were:
With those things in mind, we made the decision to build our own front-end and ensure it could work seamlessly with the back-end tools in our stack. This is reflective of a growing number of companies that are leveraging API-led tools to build a composable architecture of best-fit solutions. This type of plug-and-play solution is enabled by the rise of MACH principles (Microservices, API-first, Cloud-native, Headless) in software design.
To break it down a bit, this approach entails working with smaller solutions that seamlessly integrate with one another. They work together and function as a single unit, yet each part is interchangeable. That makes it easy to replace something if, for example, requirements have changed or a component isn't performing.
Having a MACH architecture enabled us to go from a two-person project team at the beginning of January 2020 to a fully launched eCommerce solution by July 2020.
