A vendor is frequently depicted as a force that may be conjured by management to hamper or destroy forward mobility within a company or an organization, and can never be controlled under any circumstances. Vendors provide proprietary services utilizing backward ideas, dysfunctional system components, and non-functional or non-existent technical support. Vendors gain and maintain strength by means of information repression and intense use of circular logic and evasion. “Training” is typically something of a goldbrick.
Institutions suffering from Vendor lock-in can often be compared to the poverty stricken communist state which existed under the East German occupation of 1949 – 1990 by the former Soviet Union.
We were thinking about outsourcing the website to an outside vendor. It seems to be working well enough and we decided we'd like to try fucking it completely.
