The word Atonix was inspired by the naval term “aid to navigation,” often referred to as “ATON.” It’s any device or marker external to a vessel or aircraft intended to assist navigators in determining their position or safe course, or to warn them of dangers or obstructions to navigation. Similar to how an ATON aids travelers during nautical or aviation navigation, Atonix Digital helps our clients navigate through big data.
