In 1981, the Unix platform was just emerging and there were no centralized resources in place to support this growth environment. UniForum was founded by a group of engineers and entrepreneurs who sought to provide a forum for individuals and companies interested in Unix and open systems. The initial goals of the UniForum founders still hold true today:
- To advocate and promote the understanding and use of open computing
- To provide leadership in the development of industry cooperation and standards
- To provide educational benefits to association members, including educational conferences, seminars, and informative publications.
UniForum is committed to open systems because it provides end users with a complete technology environment that supports interoperability between existing installed systems and new technologies. Open systems also gives users a choice in the technologies they choose and open systems, in turn, spurs new research and development.
