"whenever someone tells you that few companies use or need real-time, they’re likely referring to settings where human decision-makers are in the loop (“human real-time”).

"The Guide is organized into buckets based on a general observation":

a rule of thumb for systems design from Gall's book Systemantics: How Systems Really Work and How They Fail. It states:
