There are two types of data, Centralised Data Systems and Decentralised Data Systems.

Data in a Decentralised Data Systems is controlled and stored locally within the departments. Departments do not have access to other departments information. Numerous disparate information systems are developed over time. These are often spreadsheets or applications that do only one task. Integrating data from these systems is costly and unreliable. Data increasingly has inconsistencies and duplication. Lack of timely information leads to customer dissatisfaction, loss of income and reputation of being a reliable supplier. The cost of inventory, material and staff increases.
