Canonical Teases Big Ubuntu Announcement with Leading Global Automation Company

Canonical also teased a big announcement for a partnership with a leading global automation company for an innovative platform built on its Ubuntu Core embedded operating system, which promises to reinvent automation in the digital age. Most probably, the big announcement will be made next week during the SPS 2019 event, so stay tuned on our news section for all the details.
