Lock-in has been the proverbial chain of the IT industry and around the world users are uniting to make the cloud "lock-in free." New association's such as EuroCloud, the Open DataCenter Alliance are being formed, while established industry bodies like SNIA and OASIS are working on new open cloud standards and communities like cloud commons are investing in completely new approaches.

In his session at the 8th International Cloud Expo, Gregor Petri, Advisor Lean IT and Cloud Computing at CA Technologies, will dissect lock-in and more specifically cloud lock-in into its archetypes and look at possible architectural, organizational and commercial remedies. Using examples and analogies from both the IT and other industries, he will explore whether there can be "another way," a way that allows cloud users to have rich off-the-shelf or custom-designed functionality without losing their freedom to switch with reasonable cost and effort.
