Every system, application, or software your company has in use consists of data. However, in 99% of the cases, this is where the Data Silos arise, applications or software can be used only by one department and are not accessible to other departments.
Do you think that your organization’s data is hidden in different silos? Then it’s obviously time for a solution. Firstly, the thing to consider is the type of data that is contained in the Data Silos, as well as what you want to do with this data. Creating separate connections with a lot of custom coding and a high development budget is history. With Data Connectivity solutions such as Alumio and DataSync, we can structure, monitor, and distribute data from one application to another application, on the whole, in a seamless way.
Why to start with Data Connectivity?
- Control access, keep data safe, and meet governance expectations;
- Access all data with real-time data federation and monitoring;
- Deliver better customer experience and service with centralized data;
- Reduce costs for manual actions that can be automated.
Why every business should connect their data
Gain customer insights
People get married, get a kid, or move. All in all, their needs change. Incomplete data definitely makes it impossible to maintain up-to-date profiles of your customers. To point out, distributing this data can help you to maximize your ROI without wasting marketing spend.
Improve the supplychain and processes
By connecting data, you can create an efficient supply chain. For example, import stock, product data and relevant other data directly from your manufacturers into your ERP, eCommerce, or PIM.
Deliver better customer service
Connecting data from different sources can help your company to deliver better customer service. In addition, it can create a solution that the customer can help themselves with, and reduce the costs for your customer service department.
Create a multichannel approach to sales that focus on providing a seamless customer experience, whether the client is shopping online, or in a brick-and-mortar store.
Create a blueprint
We are guiding you forward, knowing when to move and where to go. Surely, always in the direction that suits your business’s best interest.

Connect everything with everything
Actually, it doesn’t matter. Once the application has an API (Application Programming Interface) or is able to export and import data in another way, it is possible to use the data and distribute it to other applications and software.
Choose the right strategy and go for it
To start with the integration of applications and dataflows across systems, it is highly important to make sure the processes of your company, as well as the purpose of each and every application, are perfectly clear. At Factor Blue we help you with:
- Structuring the data landscape and creating a technical strategy for your dataflow;
- Set up the connections and data mapping;
- The man-in-the-middle for communication with all your application vendors;
- Monitor your connections and act when a potential problem occurs.
