Data Sprawl: What to Do When Your Business Information Is Scattered Everywhere
Data sprawl is the term used to describe the uncontrolled growth and expansion of data across multiple locations and repositories. The consequences of data sprawl can be severe. For example, it can be difficult to find important information or make timely and accurate decisions based on existing data. In addition, data sprawl can lead to security problems because it’s harder to protect data when it’s scattered all over the place.
