kah • dro noun 1. cadre, 2. framework.
Origin: Esperanto. Synonym: architecture.
The word "kadro" means "framework" in Esperanto. Esperanto is a language introduced in 1887 by Dr. L.L. Zamenhof. He proposed Esperanto as a second language that would allow people who speak different native languages to communicate, yet at the same time retain their own languages and cultural identities. Esperanto is regarded as one of the easiest languages to learn. Today, Esperanto is spoken by millions of people throughout the world.
Choosing our name from the Esperanto language symbolizes our strategy to deliver open and easy to use solutions that enable people to efficiently and accurately communicate information and data throughout the enterprise.
