We are a purpose-driven software development company that looks at capitalism not only through the lens of profit but in a broader social and human context. For us, our employees are as important as our clients. We consider our employees as pillars of our business, and truly believe that 'happy employees make happy customers'.
While we make sure that we offer our employees the best place to work, our employees make sure that our clients receive personalized 'wow' experiences throughout their journey with us.
So, let's see what this journey is all about and how can Agnos help its clients.
The term Agnos is derived from the Greek noun, gnosis, which implies knowledge, and the prefix ‘A’ alters the meaning to ‘one who does not know'. We believe that there are many "known unknowns" in the business world and our day-to-day life, and continuous analysis, learning and hard work can help people in their quest to uncover these ‘known unknowns’.
The term ‘Agnos’ was also chosen as it aligns well with the core guiding principle that we must always remain “technology agnostic” when advising our clients.
We, at Agnos, challenge ourselves every day to question and resolve these "known unknowns" of our client's business and IT operations while also working on the "known unknowns" surrounding the Digital Divide.
Our high-spirited stone-hued elephant exemplifies the power, strength, stability, and wisdom required to keep pace with the continuous technology disruption transforming the world. The astronaut is reflective of the journey we want to take you on to help you deploy the most advanced technology solutions, making your business processes more profitable and your systems more powerful.
Agnos follows a Gain Share Model implies that we charge a nominal upfront fee for our services, and then use a performance-based approach that links the majority of our fees towards achieving certain benefit milestones.
This pay for performance criterion ensures that we stay completely focused on our client’s business needs and entirely objective in our technology recommendations. We only say “Mission Accomplished” when the fruits of our labor yield measurable business results for our clients. In a nutshell, our top priority is always our clients’ bottom line.
On top of this, our FTS (Follow the Sun) software development model brings together diverse, highly qualified, handpicked software development teams from around the world, with varied perspectives offering innovative and affordable technology solutions.

It has almost been 30 years since I graduated from Georgetown University, where through the Jesuit tradition, I was challenged to engage with the world and become a man “in the service of others, especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the community”. I wasn’t able to completely comprehend the significance of those values back then and how they could bind members of the business community across diverse backgrounds, faiths, cultures, and traditions, but now I understand it well.
My journey with the industry giants like IBM, Unisys, Microsoft, and Accenture inspired me to tread a new path altogether. I decided to begin a technology solutions company that can leverage the best of both worlds - lessons learned from the tech industry titans and the lessons learned from a University deeply rooted in religious faith and tradition with an unwavering commitment to spiritual inquiry and civic engagement.
In April 2012, Agnos officially opened its doors to the world offering an unconventional business paradigm with equal emphasis on profits as well as the social cause. Since then, with our core competency in the field of software development, we have been continuously working hard to resolve specific industry challenges, especially in the healthcare sector. Our technical expertise and service execution excellence has been helping healthcare providers innovate and transform for a digital future.
In addition, as part of our philosophy to give back to our society, we work with our nonprofit organizations to address the critical challenges posed by the Digital Divide. Today we face a clear and uneven distribution in the access to, use of, or impact of information and communication technologies between any number of distinct groups. Our name, Agnos, literally means to "not know" so we ask ourselves every day why is it that only approximately 4% of all software developers in the United States are African-American? Why is it that almost 80% of software developers are male? We will be relentless in our pursuit to build a bridge between technology and inequality whether this inequality is based on race, gender, age, or socioeconomic status. I sincerely believe that the secret to building a great and sustainable company that will equally delight our customers and employees is to build our organization on the pillars of profit with a purpose and capitalism with a conscious.
We, at Agnos, believe in the famous words of Adam Smith, “What needs to emerge, and in some circles is emerging, is what I call a mutual or reciprocal economy that focuses on the needs of both the individual and the collective.”
