Vendor Lock-In & Proprietary Technology: Ask the Right Questions!

Vendor Lock-in. Proprietary Technology. Switching Costs. These phrases are thrown out there more often than they need to be, without real thought to what the concerns actually are. Asking the right questions is important. If you want some real functionality and technological strength for a price, prioritize that and do not confuse a proprietary & strong enclosed technology with a closed & rigid architecture.

BPM, at the end of the day needs to make the business more agile &responsive and business processes more efficient and flexible.
