  2. 2. 2The information contained in this document is proprietary. Copyright © 2016 Capgemini. All rights reserved. But is this a serious issue? Let’s explore. Lock-in? DEFINITION Lock-in [lok-in] 1. Lock-in is a situation in which a customer using a product or service cannot easily transition to a competitor’s product or service. Lock-in is usually the result of proprietary technologies that are incompatible with those of competitors.

Common thought processes around cloud lock-in Standards are still being formed, and cloud computing is still too immature to reach the point where customers are demanding vendor independence. Going with a cloud solution means buying into the specific protocols, standards, and tools of the cloud vendor, making future migration costly and difficult. Cloud is erasing the gains we’ve made in terms of vendor dependence lock-in. When enterprises calculate the cost of leveraging cloud computing services, they don’t factor in the costs of migrating off the system – expenses which could be prohibitive and unexpected.

Various Open Network Solutions? Open Data Storage & Retrieval? Operating Systems – Open? Open Common Computing Language? So, has there ever been an option not to have Lock-in?
  5. 5. 5The information contained in this document is proprietary. Copyright © 2016 Capgemini. All rights reserved. Lock-in? Not if you understand where the business value is and focus on protecting it. Cloud tools such as IaaS, PaaS, should be looked at as powerful value- add enablers! No one delivers more powerful enabling tools than AWS. The two crown jewels of an enterprise are its data and it code base (apps, logic, etc.) that drive its business and differentiates from its competitors. So why do I say “Happy Together – Embracing cloud lock-in?”
  6. 6. 6The information contained in this document is proprietary. Copyright © 2016 Capgemini. All rights reserved. Data is data, and an enterprise asset with extreme value. It can be, and always has been, able to be migrated from tool to tool, platform to platform. Your application logic is the other jewel. If well written, code will be portable. Use APIs to call the powerful AWS platform tools. Embrace it how? Focus on your crown jewels

In Summary  Lock-in has been around since the “computing platform” became generally available – Abstract your data and logic, lock-in then dissipates  There has never been a company before AWS that delivers such a wealth of tools and platforms that enterprises can leverage – Leveraging the AWS ecosystem will deliver value way beyond the lock-in fear  Remember history! There has never been true “unlock” – Own your data and logic, and embrace the power of the AWS ecosystem of IaaS and PaaS
