You missed my point.    (02)

Availability of data != Competence to analyze data.    (03)

And since you mention it, middleware cannot confer competence to analyze 
data either.    (04)

Given the lack of experience at the depths Deep Horizon was operating, 
even detailed information would have been of little use to anyone 
outside a fairly narrow pool of experts.    (05)

Middleware might assist those experts but they would need domain 
expertise before the software would be of any use.    (06)

Hope you are having a great day!    (07)
