Some vendors use an effective sales strategy called “lock-in”. Once you’re in the vendors’ ecosystem, it can be challenging to get out. You’ll have made a big investment into various products that work great together but suck once you use them with anything else. A similar thing can happen (often unintentionally) with tech stacks. You invest big-time in tool X and are then locked into using it because you don’t want to start from scratch with a new tool Y.
