Continuous Delivery and the DevOps movement illustrated the pitfalls of ignoring the effort required to implement an architecture and keep it current. There is nothing wrong with modeling architecture and capturing those efforts, but the implementation is only the first step. Architecture is abstract until operationalized. In other words, you can’t really judge the long-term viability of any architecture until you’ve not only implemented it but also upgraded it. And perhaps even enabled it to withstand unusual occurrences
