The move towards open systems brings about a problem to those organizations that had invested heavily in proprietary systems i.e. vendor specific systems. This is due to the fact that these organizations are locked the supplier and as such the major issue to them is how to move from the proprietary systems without losing their investments in the systems. This issue is also compounded the fact that there is no way of being able to recognize the systems that are open as such organizations are left to think that the organizations with the term ‗open systems‘ are rarely open.
