A vendor lock-in is a situation where you are stuck with a certain vendor, because changing vendors is either very expensive or almost impossible due to the workload.
Imagine you’ve bought a car with several years of warranty. After a while, you want to bring your car to a local garage for maintenance, but then you see that your warranty is only applicable at the garage where you’ve bought your car. This means you are not able to go to a local garage or a cheaper garage, as you are locked to the original garage.
An example of vendor lock-in is how Apple, in the past, locked their consumers into iTunes since music could only be purchased or played in the iTunes application.
