Yes, unfortunate, but all too common. At that point, as a systems
architect the best you can do is point out the issues and risks to the
organization.  Seems to me that at that point both the knowledge of
the SME and the proper resultant architecture -- to the extent that
they have been captured -- can only be archived for the next go around
when the underfunded solution proves inadequate and the need for a
proper solution is realized once more...
