There are different kinds of silos. When it comes to data, I am yet to find any justification for a silo.

There's a long list of justifications...

- senior management can assign responsibility (single neck to wring)

- establishes boundaries

- limits risk

- hedge technical bets

- hedge project management bets

If organizations had to sit down before hand & agree across organizational boundaries on what the data means across all the players/departments, nothing would ever get done.

Or are you going to tell me that the magic of SW means one does not have to define what data means?
