It’s not often that you get something for nothing, especially something valuable like innovation in silo bridging for large enterprises.
Guidance on overcoming the problem of data silos is particularly valuable because:
Data silos are a permanent fixture in modern enterprises -- silos exist because of organizational boundaries and because of the boundaries of information systems, applications, and databases.
Efforts at silo busting, where silos are eliminated using SOA or enterprise-wide applications, are risky and expensive and usually don’t succeed.
Silo bridging instead of silo busting is the only sensible strategy.
The best way that I know of to bridge silos is to use MODS, the Methodology for Overcoming Data Silos. I am doing a free webcast on MODS. It is not magic, but it is inexpensive, low-risk, and delivers compelling results. You can find out about it here:
You can get the overview of MODS here. You'll need to register to download it, but it's a simple process. I hope that you find this information valuable. Lemme know what you think!
