“Namibia Breweries has embarked on a significant journey of digital transformation, implementing the latest digital technologies,” explains LucyMay Lubrani, Head of Digital: Innovation & Transformation at Namibia Breweries. “A crucial step remains the management and government of Big Data. Investing in a state of art BI tool will allow NBL to extract meaningful insights in a timely manner. Ultimately providing the brewery with a competitive edge when it comes to decision-making.”

“We wanted to work with a leader in the data and digital space that could partner with us on our company-wide journey.”

Namibia Breweries selected Keyrus, for its reputation in transforming the way businesses use data to solve challenges.

The first step of the journey will involve the implementation of a modern, self-service analytics BI platform. The proposed solution will include Tableau, a world-class data visualisation tool, to assist Namibia Breweries in becoming a more data-driven organisation. This will result in complete reporting and analytics capability at an operational, tactical, and strategic level. In addition, it will lead to better-informed decision-making, more efficient consumption of information, and users will be able to easily access reports, graphs, and dashboards. 

As part of their long-term roadmap, Keyrus will assist Namibia Breweries in migration to the cloud, and set up cloud data warehousing.

We like to think of ourselves as a reliable partner with a personal and hands-on approach to implementing the latest digital solutions.
