Enterprise information, such as policies and procedures, enterprise data, enterprise social networks, and emails, to name a few, all reside in different information systems. This situation results in information silos, which in turn lead to the increased cost of information integration and reduced capacity for exploiting synergies within the organization. In fact, information silos in organizational information systems can result in inefficiency of information retrieval, redundancy and conflicts between information assets of the company, leading to duplication of efforts and job roles, as well as an incomplete understanding of the organization.
