ABSTRACT
Making manifest, syndicating, and then governing a system's architecture facilitates understanding, reasoning about, and transforming that system with intention. This premise holds true for new systems as well as legacy ones, exploratory systems as well as production ones. Watson, IBM's reasoning system, is such a system—it is both new and exploratory. Managing its architecture has considerable payoff.
