Washing your hands with dirty water...

With the multitude of Enterprise applications and equally obscene number of BI/DW tools set up to mine the content for competitive advantage I am continuously baffled by the disconnected, duplicate ridden, inaccuracies, etc. found in core data feeds.

To get to a single version of the truth what do companies do to bring their SAP, Oracle, Salesforce.com, and Excel spread sheets together? As I have seen, CDI looks to weight sources as to confidence in the reliability of the data. So if you are cleaning your data, with your data... isn't that kind of like washing your hands with dirty water?
