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...
