Inherently it is not an easy problem to fix as the root of the issue is the way in which companies are operated. Each and every department/unit rolls their own requirements and works in silos rather than across the board. This requires a rethink within companies to move away from the silo way in which it operates and rather adopts the data driven culture, where knowing that my own data is valuable across the company and not just within my specific silo.
