In enterprise systems, information silos emerge when processes and data are kept in separate servers or data centers and they cannot interact with other systems. Data centers grow in size with the deployment of each new application, minimizing resource utilization and reducing the overall efficiency of the enterprise.
Data silos are nothing new to IT administrators and developers. They have tackled on-premises enterprise application integration (EAI) projects over the past decade. With the increasing adoption of Software as a Service (SaaS) and other cloud offerings it means that the information silos are once again becoming an obstacle - resulting in the fragmentation of processes and data - not on-premises, but in the cloud.
