Persevere in use
Recently, Cramer Development put together a slick little application for making sticky notes. They discuss how quickly the application came together, as Persevere allowed them to quickly establish a data API, and then focus on the client side interface.
Other users include:
- DataStream Content Solutions is using Persevere to build an XML repository for legal data in combination with MarkLogic.
- Montana State University is using Persevere for their Yogo Data Management Project.
- Another multi-national company is using Persevere in production for Intranet applications, with consistent usage from a number of users.
- And, of course, we at SitePen are using Persevere for a number of the applications we are developing.
Numerous others are using Persevere in a variety of ways.
