Information silo

Information silo,

Definition of Information silo:

  1. An information silo is an information management system that is unable to freely communicate with other information management systems. Communication within an information silo is always vertical, making it difficult or impossible for the system to work with unrelated systems.

  2. Information silos exist when management does not believe there to be enough benefit from sharing information, and access to information might not be useful to personnel in other systems.

  3. Any information management system that is unable to communicate with other information management systems, even if otherwise related or within the same organization. This can be by design or by choice for a variety of reasons, though nowadays generally frowned upon because of the lack of accessibility and implied limitations to productivity.
