The right dataset – without all the hassle

Do you need a specific dataset, but it is not available? Or are you not permitted to use it for your specific objective due to privacy concerns? Then you have a few options. You could look for useable data online, but such datasets are often not ideal for the purpose for which you want to use them. Another option is to create a fictitious file yourself, but this is often a complex and time-consuming process.

You want to perform a new analysis or use an application, but you want to prototype it first. Getting data from your organization is either too time consuming or you might not be able to use it due to privacy concerns.
