Anodos means path to enlightenment based on the Greek word "ανοδος" (nominative feminine, 2nd declension) from philosopher Plato's Allegory of the Cave (Republic, book VII, 517b), which translates as "raised walkway" from the dark cave interiors (="ignorance") to the bright sunny exterior (="knowledge"). That journey from dark to light is the journey of becoming self-aware.
By extension, self-awarness in organization translates to situational awareness. The business path to breakthrough performance is through analytics and thorough insight. We help businesses make informed-decisions by seeing the real performances of their organizations beyond dark misinformation. Anodos believes that meaningful and timely data can help any business emerge from darkness to light. In fact, that's the inspiration behind our name and logo.
The Anodos Logo is designed by Fashion Designer, Momoko Tokunaga, to symbolize a universe of data both perceptible and imperceptible .
