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.
