THIS IS HOW IT WORKS IN BUSINESSES TODAY

(and it's been like this since the 1990`s)

 

Information in your company is scattered across many sophisticated systems. However, when people try to search for or demand information, there is nowhere to start. So they usually use the phone or email to find someone who knows someone who knows the answer. And they do this over and over again and have done so since the 90`s.

 

The typical, colourful, corporate information-landscape

 
 

 

The world of corporate information is:

 

diverse

The idea that there's a single version of the truth is a myth - there are many meanings found in many contexts.

scattered

The idea of a single data source is a myth - they're scattered and fragmented across different systems, applications and departments.

ungoverned

There's no simple system for navigating through your information. There's no clear ownership and no single-search capabilities.
