Perseus™ List Management Utility Demo

Presentation Abstract

JANA’s Perseus™ XML List Management Utility is a web-based data management application that simplifies the creation and handling of large amounts of XML data. It is a comprehensive solution to the difficulties associated with editing and managing XML list data, providing an easy to use – but highly structured – research and editing interface between the user and the underlying electronic data.

Perseus™ was originally designed as a tool for use by JANA’s production staff, but has now been launched as a stand-alone software product capable of managing a nearly limitless amount of data – and because the interface is so intuitive, the user doesn’t have to know anything about XML!


What can attendees expect to learn?

Attendees will learn how easy it can be to manage large amounts of XML list data – even if they know nothing about XML or structured data.
