Data Silos

One of the biggest issues with current IT landscapes is the inefficiency of the popular 'shift and lift data’ approach. In the past, it was necessary to periodically move data away from transactional applications into dedicated analytical systems. We did this so that data could be cleaned and harmonized with data from other sources using specialist applications. This approach also frees up the transactional system from the task of storing data used only for analysis. But as a result, multiple copies of the data are created in various places during the movement phase. But even worse, there is latency between the systems while the data transfer is pending. This means that we do not have a consistent picture of data across the enterprise at any moment.
