Gone are the days of 2-year software development projects. Now organizations are striving for code updates that drop monthly, weekly, even daily. A developer will say, "I need a workable copy of Oracle today." And IT responds, "OK, we'll have that in about 2 weeks." What's a developer to do? Sometimes this leads to the use of synthetic datasets (one might also refer to this simply as "fake data"). These never work as well as real data, and the result is more bugs and slower software development. Other times the Dev/Test side of the house will expense spinning up a bunch of systems in the cloud, so-called "shadow IT."
