Agnosticism comes from the Greek “a”, privative, and “gnosis”, which means “knowledge”. This philosophical concept suggests that everything that goes outside the concrete domain, verifiable by experience, remains unknown. This term is mainly used for religion and is different from atheism, which denies the existence of a deity in the sense that, for the agnostic, it is impossible to pronounce on the divine presence.
The term has evolved to refer to a person who has no particular faith.
In the digital realm, an agnostic technology takes this latter idea and opens it to the ability of a computing resource to adapt with all the operating systems within which that resource is employed.
More technically, an agnostic technology relates to a resource operable within distinct systems, therefore independent of them.
Agnostic technology allows computer software to adapt easily to the different runtime environments in which it will operate.
To give a few more telling examples, a software agnostic in terms of system means that any platform (iOS, Android, Windows …) works with any of these operating systems.
Agnostic in terms of equipment means that any software works on several types of equipment : desktop or laptop computers, smartphones, tablets, etc.
Our agnostic technologies run on the three most widely used operating systems in the world. A concrete and effective commitment to facilitate access to digital technology for all.
