Can someone tell me what exactly are we benefiting from setting this property to true ?.

As per documentation, validation rules will be skipped...does it mean the object's validation rules ?

Also what would be a use case where we would want this ?

Setting immediate=true does not fire getters or setters and skips validation.

An example use case:

-> You have inputfields for a given object with "required=true" or where the field is required.

-> You have a cancel button.

If the user presses the cancel button and immediate=true is not set and the fields are blank, they will get an error that a field is required.
