Moving off of DDMI

I am sad to say the last of my clients who use DDMI have now made the decision to move off of it.  I say "made the decision", but it was really forced on them by DDMI being EOL'd.  I know HP and MF both think folks will just "move to UD".  What I can say is not a single client of mine who use DDMI and were not also using DDMA have chosen to move to UD.  They have now all relectantlly chosen to implement new a new Discovery Tool.  All the folks at HP/MF would have needed to do is make the ZSAI files which are already being created and released for UDI available in the old format DDMI can use.  Without updated ZSAI files though DDMI becomes increasingly senile.  No matter how much a customer who has been using DDMI for 11+ years might like it, when it is blind to Software which has been released in the last two years it stops being viable as a Discovery Tool.

Anyone out there still using DDMI or have a client who is?
