The DataDirect feed Schedules Direct will be using is internally
separate from the Zap2IT LABS feed we were using. (Terms are
important... I've learned DD != Z2L ). Update policies are different, etc.
I hope (but honestly don't know for sure yet) that the data quality will
be better than with Z2L. We do have contractual methods for updates
that we didn't have with Z2L.
In addition, the Schedules Direct team has some medium and long-term
plans (with contractual allowances) to augment and improve the Data
Direct feed. We first need to focus on 9/1.
If this sounds complicated (especially with terms like "augment" and
"contractual allowance"), you can start to see the complexities we've
been working with. Sorry we've been been so quiet, but before the
contract was signed things were very fluid... now things are starting to
gel and we can talk about it... some. We still have quite a bit of work
