EGHAM, England, February 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Performance Management and Business Intelligence together in a single

solution leveraging Microsoft technology and

Tagetik’s passion for performance

Tagetik, a global provider of enterprise software solutions for Performance
Management, Enterprise Governance, Risk & Compliance and Business Intelligence, today
announced a major release of ‘Tagetik 4.0 Enabled by Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) Server
2010′ (http://www.tagetik.com/software/bi/sharepoint) at the Gartner Business
Intelligence Summit 2012[1].

Since 2009, Tagetik and Microsoft have teamed up to deliver a unified Performance
Management and Business Intelligence solution that offers a superior level of financial
expertise, productivity, and functionality to the Office of Finance, all in a single
application built on Microsoft leading-edge technology.

During the Gartner Business Intelligence Summit, Tagetik will be presenting the latest
outcome of this strategic alliance: ‘CPM&BI battle-tested by Finance, easy on IT: Tagetik
4.0 Enabled-by-Microsoft’ – today February 6th at 2:45pm – to show the full potential of
the revamped solution. ‘Tagetik 4.0 Enabled by Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) Server 2010′
unifies key financial processes and applications including:

        - Budgeting, Planning & Forecasting;
        - Cash Forecasting;
        - Financial Consolidation & Close;
        - Statutory & Management Reporting;
        - Governance, Risk & Compliance;
        - Disclosure Management & Reporting;
        - Cost Allocation & Profitability Analysis;
        - Business Intelligence & Analytics;
        - Collaboration & Workflow.

“There are Corporate Performance Management (CPM) options today that are simple to use
but cannot scale to thousands of users and do not have collaboration or analytics,” says
Dave Kasabian, Corporate Vice President Product Marketing at Tagetik and presenter at the
conference (http://www.tagetik.com/company/management/dave-kasabian). “Others have
scalability, analytics and collaboration but require multiple technologies that create
headaches for IT. ‘Tagetik 4.0 Enabled by Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) Server 2010′ is a
software solution both Finance and IT can agree on.”

“Tagetik works with the culture of a specialized craftsman with a deep knowledge of
global market needs,” adds Manuel Vellutini, Chief Operating Officer at Tagetik
(http://www.tagetik.com/company/management/manuel-vellutini). “We know deeply the
processes of Finance and continuously innovate to improve them. We will continue to
exploit our ‘secret ingredient’, the passion for performance of 300 experts and many
partners working everyday with unwavering commitment to ensure our customers’ satisfaction
and success. This is what makes Tagetik the smart choice for those that are passionate
about performance.”

The Office of Finance can thus make business information easily accessible to support
multiple interrelated processes throughout the organization in one product to:

        - Accelerate informed decisions that achieve strategic goals;
        - Increase business productivity;
        - Gain control over financial data;
        - Maximize IT investments;
        - Reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Tagetik 4.0 is tightly integrated with Microsoft’s Business Intelligence,
communication and collaboration tools. Customers can leverage existing technology
investments in Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) Server, SQL Server(R), Analysis Services,
Reporting Services, and PowerPivot as well as the skills of Microsoft-trained internal
resources. Whether the IT strategy is diverse or Microsoft-centric, the software
seamlessly coexists in virtually any IT environment.

Tagetik’s achievements over the last year include winning the highly prestigious
‘Microsoft ISV/Software Line of Business Partner of the Year’ award (
