Why do data silos eliminate teamwork and collaboration?

Asked 2 years ago

I've found that data silos result in each team member doing their own thing separate from everyone else, reducing teamwork and collaboration. This is quite disappointing because I really value those things in an organization. Why do data silos have this effect and what can be done about it?

Data silos eliminate teamwork and collaboration because staff usually feel they have different job descriptions from those of the other compartments. They act and work in isolation because they have the mentality of self-sufficiency in the activities they engage in. Data silos doesn't promote collaboration. Sometimes staff feel that interferences from other personnel may disturb the effective management of their specific workspaces so they shun teamwork. And by so doing, they commonly do not demand information from other parties and would not share the information they have in their databases.
