No Vendor Lock-In
Avoid Lock-In with CMS and Storage vendors
Be aware of vendor lock-in upfront, or be prepared to pay later!
Make sure you have both an entrance and an exit strategy!
In economics, vendor lock-in, also known as proprietary lock-in, or customer lock-in, makes a customer dependent on a vendor for products and services. Vendor lock-in exists in most large enterprise verticals like telco's, healthcare, finance and energy... but also when talking about Content Management Systems and Storage vendors
At STEALTH Software we like our clients to stay with us because they want to - not because they have to.
Some archive vendor’s may try to do things to keep tapping into your wallet, but you can decide upfront either not to participate, or to do things to at least mitigate the damage if you decide to terminate the relationship. Don’t stand up to vendor abuse. Once a vendor no longer remembers their place or they start to have problems, they’ll try as quickly as possible to turn the relationship to their financial advantage. Be aware of the implications of lock-in upfront and have an exit strategy when the abuse becomes unbearable or be prepared to pay more money over the long term.
Remember that these costs to the customer (you) creates a situation which favours the vendor at the expense of the consumer.
At STEALTH Software, there is no vendor lock-in, which means you are free to export your content to another Storage vendor or exit
