    Hi Akhil,

    Please go through these links:

    1. An information silo is a management system incapable of reciprocal operation with other, related management systems. A bank's management system, for example, is considered a silo if it cannot exchange information with other related systems within its own organization, or with the management systems of its customers, vendors or business partners. "Information silo" is a pejorative expression that is useful for describing the absence of operational reciprocity. Derived variants are "silo thinking", "silo vision", and "silo mentality".

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information_silo

    2. Storage silos are structures for storing bulk materials. Silos are used in agriculture to store grain (see grain elevators) or fermented feed known as silage. Silos are more commonly used for bulk storage of grain, coal, cement, carbon black, wood chips and sawdust.

    Three types of silos are in widespread use today:

    1.Tower silos

    2. Bunker silos

    3. Bag silos

    Heii Akhil,

    As per your problem

    The type of information that a data warehouse should deliver is largely determined by individual business needs.this often results in a number of isolated applications which are referred to as silos or stove pipes. To avoid isolated applications, a comprehensive, harmonized data warehouse solution is often favored the enterprise data warehouse.

    An enterprise data warehouse (EDW) is a company-wide data warehouse that is built to include all the different layers. An organization-wide, single and central data warehouse layer is also referred to as an EDW.

    You are probably referring to data silos. That means that the data is not integrated but rather is contained in local databases or files.

    Hi Akhil,

    Silos from Business Landscape point of view actually refers to distributed system Landscape or disaparated systems where the data is scattered.

    for eg. System A , B, C are 3 separate systems where data is created reffering to the single organisation but all of them have a relevance pertaining to the local sysytem but from a global point of view all of these master data systems are operating in "Silos ".

    Hope this will make ur picture clear.

    reward points if useful.

    Regards..

    Deepankar.
