A silent epidemic afflicting hundreds of thousands of companies worldwide was diagnosed as "Silo Syndrome" today by leading Big Data authorities. Long speculated as the cause behind loss of agility, business insight and competitive advantage, Silo Syndrome does not discriminate, and is particularly dangerous to organizations in the financial services, healthcare, technology, e-business and government sectors.
If corporations experience any combination of these systems, they should seek help immediately.
Sid Probstein, CTO of Attivio, is working on the front lines to aid the afflicted and says a cure is available.
"Silo syndrome does not have to cripple business," Probstein said. "If a unified information access approach to managing silos of information is taken, companies do not have to suffer. They can live long and profitable lives."
