What convention in your discipline are you disagreeing with at the moment?

There is an emerging trend around Analytics Engineering that I'm not quite sure to bet on. While it at first glance sounds interesting for analysts to take more control of modelling and own business logic entirely, I'm hesitant due to two reasons: 1) I simply don't believe one single person can possess the bandwidth to build meaningful stakeholder relationships that allow discovering real requirements while also deploying very technical transformations 2) It will be incredibly hard to maintain best practices and a scalable data model with analysts suddenly just "giving it a go"
