0:00 OK. So you would like to prevent vendor locking.
0:03 What to do, how you can address that?
0:06 First of all, make sure that you choose the open technologies for interoperability and try to pick solutions that integrate easily with other systems.
0:17 Use standardized protocols to avoid vendor locking.
0:21 Secondly, architect with modularity and portability in mind. Design loosely coupled components. Document interfaces for future transitions.
0:36 At the end, try to ensure that data and IP ownership is where it should be.
0:43 Make sure that you review vendor contract to prevent locking. Negotiate terms for data extraction and IP protection.
0:52 Ask vendors about reducing risk just mentioned.
