CEO Message

Message from the CEO

SIOS Corporation was originally founded under the trade name Ten Art-ni Corporation in 1997. At the time, Microsoft Windows, UNIX, and mainframe OSs were mainstream, and Linux was considered a variant for hobbyists, with few people taking it seriously for business use. Nevertheless, we saw the great potential in Linux to go beyond the hobbyist community and into the mainstream business community, and we set out to promote Linux in a variety of business applications.

Today, Linux has become one of the most widely used OSs in the world, finding its way into millions of smartphones running on Google’s Android. Our open-source software business, which includes offering applications running on Linux, has grown to become one of the pillars that sustain the growth of the SIOS Group.

The drive to make the impossible possible is in our DNA

Under the mission of making the impossible possible for the people of the world, the SIOS Group pursues innovative solutions to resolve issues affecting people and to contribute to a better society.
