We reply on the duality between scattering amplitudes in planar maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mill theory to develop a formalism for calculation of their systematic near-collinear expansion to all orders in 't Hooft coupling. We rely on a set of bootstrap axioms to fix the form of all ingredients of this approach making use of hidden integrability of the theory. Finally, we demonstrate the consistency of this approach with other non-perturbative techniques for calculation of scattering amplitudes based on the s-called Q-bar equation.
