We're currently in the process of migrating from on-prem SharePoint to cloud based.  In order to avoid redundancy and doubling up, we're going to use the SP site associated with a Team rather than create a second standalone SP site and have two things to manage. 

 

In our structure, we have a Team for the directorate, approximately 100 people.  Each working unit under that directorate will have their own Team eg Networks, Server, Client support (and others).  The directorate Team, SP has been made a hub, with the other SP sites associated with this hub.

If there is a SharePoint list containing data which is relevant to all Teams, e.g. Locations, how can we refer to this list from a separated Team given cross site lookups are no longer valid?   It would seem redundant to maintain this information across multiple groups.
