My organization typically moves production data to other environments. There are a variety of use cases:
- Testing with the amount and frequency of production data.
- Performing analytics on said data.
- Delivering production-like data to a third party for their use.
We do not want to move production data around. Instead, we want to deliver “production-like” data for these use cases. Sometimes, we work with multiple systems integrated with each other, and in those cases, we need the data to match up. In other instances, we need the sensitive data, such as personal identifiable information (PII), to be altered so it’s no longer sensitive, but there’s no requirement for it to be consistent across systems.
