According to a Forbes August 20, 2013 article citing statistics from The Fantasy Sports Trade Association, they estimate that 32 million Americans spend $467 per person or about $15 billion (USD) in total playing fantasy sports.
Roughly, $11 billion (USD) flows toward football alone. These figures don't count ad revenue for fantasy hosting sites. The NFL's annual revenue falls just under $10 billion currently. So the "derivative" market has grown larger than the foundational market.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
