An information silo is an insular management system incapable of reciprocal operation with other, related information systems. Information silo occurs whenever a data system is incompatible or not integrated with other data systems. This incompatibility may occur in the technical architecture, in the application architecture, or in the data architecture of any data system. However, since it has been shown that established data modeling methods are the root cause of the data integration problem, most data systems are at least incompatible in the data architecture layer.

  • An information silo is an insular management system incapable of reciprocal operation with other, related information systems. Information silo occurs whenever a data system is incompatible or not integrated with other data systems. This incompatibility may occur in the technical architecture, in the application architecture, or in the data architecture of any data system. However, since it has been shown that established data modeling methods are the root cause of the data integration problem, most data systems are at least incompatible in the data architecture layer. In management the term silo mentality often refers to information silos in organizations. Silo mentality is caused by divergent goals of different organizational units. It can also be described as a variant of the principal-agent problem. Silo mentality preferably occurs in larger organizations and can lead to a decreased performance and has a negative impact on the corporate culture. Silo mentality can be countered by the introduction of shared goals, the increase of internal networking activities and the flatting of hierarchies. Predictors for the occurrence of silos are * Number of employees * Number of organizational units within the whole organization * Degree of specialization * Number of different incentive mechanisms This should not be confused with a data silo in computing, like application virtualization, operating-system-level virtualization, or a separation kernel.
