Recap

Informational silos can be disruptive to the business process, but aren't detrimental, if managed correctly. Silos result from the lack of fluid communication between teams. They can be the result of structural shortcomings, non-cooperative culture, or non-integrative tech. It can be hard to balance the competing needs for departmental autonomy and central oversight, but it's important to remember that increased communication doesn't necessarily detract from the independence of your teams. From a technological standpoint, the best way to mitigate the impact of silos is to invest in integrated business solutions. Possessing a myriad of software solutions that can't communicate with each other will inevitably lead to disorder. The ability to seamlessly transfer data from one solution to another is critical to establishing an efficient business process.
