Supporting social security in Angola

Tableau: Tell us a little about where you work? Carlos Sampaio, Partner, Estamos Juntos: Our area of work right now is Angola. We are expanding to other African countries in the near future. Maybe later it will go to other regions, but for now, we are centered in Africa. Tableau: Can you describe your current project? Carlos: In this particular project, we were working for the Ministry of Employment and Social Security in Angola. So they are building this concept, all the structure of social security to cover a region that has over 20 million people. Angola is a country that suffered from a very long and hard civil war for 30 years. The concept of social security for us is something that we take for granted. But there it's something new. People are really starting to have hope in the future. Tableau: And how does Tableau fit into this project? Carlos: So those who are learning, those who are making, those who are seeing in all the hierarchy of that institution, really love Tableau for everything that Tableau has given to them. And it's very gratifying to see that with Tableau, we are actually doing something to meet those hopes of those people. Those people now go to work; they are not afraid to leave home to go to work. And they know that when they retire, they will have an institute, an organization, government organization that is managing their money that will provide security in the future. Tableau is part of this. People don't know that, of course, that's transparent for the people, but it's there. It's providing the knowledge to make this organization trusted and robust, and this really has a positive impact in this country.

Tableau has some amazing characteristics that we all know very well. It's simple to use. Anyone can use it. Even someone without a technical profile may use it.

Training made easy with simplicity and independence

Tableau: What has the response been to your work in Tableau? Carlos: We believe that Africa has a great margin of progression for Tableau. We are a tailored software company. We work mainly for Angolan market. We develop projects of great scale for the government of Angola. Tableau: Why did you choose Tableau? Carlos: Tableau has some amazing characteristics that we all know very well. And they apply very well in Africa. It's simple to use. Anyone can use it. Even someone without a technical profile may use it. And we can see that whenever we show a proof of concept, whenever we show a new chart that we make, a new report, when we train people, when people make their own report in two minutes, and they say, "Wow, I did this in two minutes. I don't understand anything of business intelligence, but I was able to make a beautiful report showing the payments of pensions to the people. I made that in two minutes, and the result is beautiful.” Tableau: What makes Tableau unique in a market like Angola? Carlos: Less is more. And in Angola, this is more important than usually. They really want something simple and relevant. They don't want visual pollution. So instead of making complex reports, we make many simple reports. So they only show the information that matters, so it's not in great volume. It's not very complex, they load very easily, and that's also important. Tableau: In your opinion, what is one of the biggest benefits? Carlos: They have this independence in terms of capability to produce. And that's very important there too, because they really value this kind of independence.
