Data Rundancy is BAD!
I have just moved from Wisconsin to Illinois. Just in the past six weeks I've dealt with organizations whose information systems were FUBAR. If I was a CIO, the first goal would be to insure that nowhere in the organization was any information stored in more than one place - that's what the database is for idiots! Since we're mired in the ineptness of the relational model, we might as well at least use it competently. DATA REDUNDANCE can only lead to one thing - DISASTER. Please sack your incompetent IT people and hire those who understand.
