I'm sure there are valid requirements for real-time data in
pre-production environments somewhere in the universe, but in the real
world I've experienced over the last 8 years, monthly/quarterly
refreshes have been just fine for development and testing.  If they have
a valid reason, then let them present it.  If you can't shoot holes in
it, then grant their wish, but if they don't have a truly valid reason,
then tell them to stop wasting your time.  I know it's feasible, but not
necessarily practical, or the best use of a DBA's time.

Developers, QA, pre-production testers and all other kind of groups
might have quite valid requirements to have refreshed their test
environment daily, hourly or on demand.
