I'm currently working in a medium sized organization with many map needs. We do very little versioning because we are more consumers and viewers of data than creators. Also, our base layers are established and don't move much. When updating data we get from other agencies (Building Footprints, Street Centerlines, etc.) we prefer to overwrite the existing enterprise feature classes. Unfortunately, this usually can't happen because ArcGIS Server services are running off of these enterprise feature classes. I've read many GeoNet posts and searched on several  sites but I couldn't pinpoint a solution. I'd like to hear from the community and see how others deal with schema locks.
