Tagetik Positioned in the Visionaries Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Corporate Performance Management Suites


LUCCA, Italy, March 14, 2011 -- Leading Industry Analyst Firm's Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

Tagetik, a global provider of enterprise software solutions
for Performance Management, Governance, Risk & Compliance and Business
Intelligence, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner,
Inc.(http://www.gartner.com) in the Visionaries quadrant of the "Magic
Quadrant for Corporate Performance Management [CPM] Suites"[1]. This annual
report evaluates software vendors on their completeness of vision and ability
to execute.

"We have reached for a sought-after position in the quadrant,
and are pleased to have been recognized by Gartner as a Visionary," says
Manuel Vellutini, EVP Chief Operating Officer at Tagetik. "Placed among
thirteen vendors in this Magic Quadrant, Tagetikleverages as an independent,
specialist player exclusively focused in the CPM market. Compared to the
mega-vendors, we have a state-of-the-art, unified software with a clear
product roadmap and no uncertainty or overlapping functionality. This is the
reason why organizations are selecting Tagetik 3.0, versus a patchwork of
acquired solutions."

"We continue to innovate and grow at a rate faster than the average in
the market, while executing our product roadmap in all areas of CPM
functionality," adds Vellutini. "Also, we significantly improved on last
year's customer satisfaction survey that indicates we have added capability
to support our global, rapid expansion and confirms our good depth of
knowledge of the more complex aspects of CPM."

"We remained particularly strong for complex financial consolidation,
financial, management, statutory reporting and budgeting, planning and
forecasting-type solutions but also shared Gartner's vision who foresees
aspects of financial governance become integrated and implemented in
conjunction with core CPM," continues Vellutini. "That is why we have
successfully worked to deliver a number of new, unified features for
disclosure management and XBRL/iXBRL technology, allowing customers to
support further auditability, financial governance, reconciliation management
and the financial close process."

"Two years ago, we started to expand on our roadmap,
incorporating a broader view of BI and PM that was meant to be a tight
integration with Microsoft SharePoint Server and Microsoft BI Platform.
Today, we leverage a strategic relationship with Microsoft Corp. and a truly
revolutionary product ('Tagetik 3.0 Enabled by Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R)
Server 2010' software solution) that are generating global opportunities,
introducing us to new clients and further enhance our market position,
especially in North America," concludes Vellutini.
