At the same time, it remedies the shortcomings of current "big data" analytics technology and provides the appropriate ways to nurture and capture the human intelligence in order to extract the necessary insights. It can thus reduce the dataintensiveness and complexity overload at critical decision points to a manageable level, thus permitting stakeholders to be more productive and concentrate on creative activities.
