Data Mining Definition

Here is my definition of Data Mining:

Data Mining is a process of extraction of non-trivial patterns from massive datasets which either provides descriptive insights of the data (not perceived without this extraction) or provides actionable intelligence (in the form of reusable patterns which the process extracted). Where actionable intelligence is a structure of explicitly representable patterns which can be used for decision making either manually or computationally.

What do you think about it? Whats missing? Whats extra?
