Tagetik Announces 'Collaborative Performance Management' at the Gartner Business Intelligence Summit 2011


EGHAM, England, January 31, 2011 - Tagetik and Microsoft's Strategic Alliance Drives Forward Organisations' Productivity and Profitability, with new CPM

Tagetik, a global provider of enterprise software solutions for
Performance Management, Governance, Risk & Compliance and Business
Intelligence, today announced its vision for making Business Intelligence,
Performance Management and Disclosure Management processes as collaborative
as possible from the Gartner Business Intelligence Summit 2011.

The rise of collaboration in managing business performance has led to a
concept which Tagetik and Microsoft call 'Collaborative Performance
Management', and is a clear indication that the relationship between the two
companies is growing quickly and successfully. The outcome of this joint
commitment, 'Tagetik 3.0 Enabled by Microsoft® SharePoint® Server 2010'
software solution, aims to deliver across the enterprise a unified
Performance and Disclosure Management system, with specialised Business
Intelligence, collaboration and communication tools. The solution ensures
compliance with XBRL and also with iXBRL which will be mandatory from April
in the UK. During the Gartner BI Summit, Tagetik will be presenting 'The
importance of Collaboration in managing CPM and BI' - tomorrow February 1st
at 9:15 am - to show the full potential of the brand-new application.

"We started in 2009 with the integration of the previous release
'Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007' but it was May 2010 when Tagetik's leading
edge technology was able to maximize the power of Microsoft Corp.'s
sophisticated Business Intelligence platform and provide companies with
well-known application tools such as Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010,
Microsoft Office Professional 2010, and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2,"
explains Marco Pierallini, EVP Chief Development Officer at Tagetik.

"Performance Management extended to collaborative decision-making is the
new challenge for complex organisations willing to manage business
performance more efficiently, facilitate teamwork across multiple systems or
stakeholders, and improve the quality of operational and strategic
decision-making," adds Manuel Vellutini, EVP Chief Operating Officer at
Tagetik. "Microsoft and Tagetik have joined forces to fill this growing need
to integrate collaborative technologies into Performance Management and
Business Intelligence processes - which we call 'CPM® Evolution'. And,
above all, support companies looking to implement corporate strategies more
effectively while adding value to the way in which they manage and control
all business areas."

From public disclosure, management reporting, XBRL compliance issues
throughout their budgeting, planning and forecasting processes, through to
operational production/sales planning and control, Tagetik 3.0 Enabled by
Microsoft SharePoint offers the necessary support by unifying key financial
processes and applications including:

o Performance Management (PM)

o Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC)

o Disclosure Management

o Business Intelligence (BI)

o Collaboration

o Communication

"Using our new Collaborative Disclosure Management (CDM) module within
Tagetik 3.0 Enabled by Microsoft SharePoint, companies can make the most of
advanced BI and special communication and collaboration tools to prepare,
analyse and publish all types of financial data ranging from budgets and
management reports to statutory filings and sustainability reports,"
continues Vellutini. "This solution allows people within any organisation to
pool documents and footnotes related to the closing process through a single
portal, so reducing manual tasks and ensuring accurate data for corporate
disclosures. And includes full XBRL and iXBRL support in line with today's
latest regulatory requirements."

"We have long shared the vision to make BI and PM processes as
collaborative as possible. We've now achieved this with a single
'collaborative performance management' platform to improve business
communication and decision-making across the enterprise," concludes Pierluigi
Pierallini, President and CEO at Tagetik.
