Every day millions of people around the world depend on TomTom to make smarter decisions. TomTom designs and develops innovative products for portable navigation devices, automotive Connected Navigation Systems, Highly Automated Driving and fleet management that make it easy for people to keep moving towards their goals. Best known for being a global leader in navigation and mapping products, TomTom also creates GPS sports watches, as well as state-of-the-art fleet management solutions and industry-leading location-based products. To fuel a continuous stream of improvements and innovations, TomTom builds on a growth- and performance-oriented culture that embraces teamwork, the drive for excellence, mobility and empowerment of employees. To facilitate this, Fairbanks developed for TomTom, based on the Canonical software suite, a specific office automation environment to be able to deliver the Ubuntu desktops for the employees in a fast, efficient and a controlled way.
“Fairbanks automated the process for deployment and monitoring of Ubuntu clients for our engineers and developers worldwide, including the installation of specific software for specific individual developers or groups of developers. Fairbanks also integrated the ability to keep the software updated continuously, rapidly, reliably and repeatedly, at low risk and with minimal manual overhead using native Canonical tooling. Thus enabling our development teams to focus on creating value for our customers without interruptions. We are very happy with the result as well as the swift and agile manor in which Fairbanks realized the results in collaboration with our system engineers. Creating the value we needed, in time and on budget. A great example of the way we like to work ourselves at TomTom.”
