In a post on the Xero Blog on 15th January, Mark Vickers discusses Vendor Lock-In. In a previous post, I commented on the automatic upgrades nature of Saas products. Here I want to examine Mark’s claim that:
“.. if you want to stop using Xero, it’s relatively simple to get your data out in formats that can be used by other systems”
Now, I am a very happy user of Xero but, pretending for a moment that I have decided to pitch my tent elsewhere, I am looking at how I would get my data out.
Sorry, but I have given up trying to get the AccoountingWeb blog editor to format my post properly. So I can only suggest that you go here to read the rest of this posting.
