Times are changing, and so is the way data is use and store. The rise of practices like microservices, data lakes, and untraditional data stores is making it harder to find inconstancies and suspicious activity. On top of that, new tools like self-service BI offers the promise to let you handle the changing environment but requires a time commitment to get a handle on.
