The ALERT Direct interface is a real-time message handling application. It allows you to establish a direct connection between your host system and the ALERT host, enabling real-time update and retrieval of ALERT platform data. Use of the ALERT Direct interface can potentially eliminate the need to use the ALERT platform's web interface.
