Makoro (also known as Mokoro) in a Bantu language of Botswana means the traditional dugout canoe of the people of the Okavango Delta commonly used in the Delta and on the Chobe River in Botswana. It is used by local residents to navigate the waters around the swamp.

Like its namesake, Makoro™ – our performance twin – navigates enterprise data lakes and bodies of data in manufacturing and supply chain, continuously gleaning insights and making recommendations.
