Data Governance for Heineken


Leiden / Netherlands


Data Governance



Clever Republic started implementing Data Governance at Heineken Netherlands back in 2018. The question of our client was to help build-up a Data Governance organisation within Heineken Netherlands from scratch (as part of a newly formed Data & Analytics Office). Starting with a Proof-of-Value and creating the requirements for a Request for Proposal, Clever Republic helped Heineken in selecting Data Governance tooling (Collibra) and implemented it from scratch.

We have been creating and implementing the:

  • Assetmodel
  • Metamodel
  • Data Catalog
  • Business Glossary
  • User roles
  • Active Directory integration
  • Workflows
  • Report integration
  • Training

We’ve been awarded an “Honorable mention for the Collibra Data Intelligence Program of the Year 2020″ by Collibra during their Data Citizens 2020 event.

During the implementation for Heineken Netherlands we have also been helping Heineken Global (International) in their first steps to roll-out Collibra to 78 countries and setting up their Data Governance initiative as part of the Digital & Technology department.
