Mike Willis, a PricewaterhouseCoopers partner and founding chairman of XBRL
International, will deliver the <STRONG>keynote presentation, “Benefits of
Comprehensive Integrated Reporting,” at </STRONG>Tagetik’s North American User Conference in
New York City on May 15.  Approximately 100 Tagetik customers and
partners will attend the annual event, hosted by Tagetik, a global provider of
enterprise software solutions for performance management, disclosure management,
financial governance and business intelligence.  Attending executives will
represent companies such as John Hancock, Babson Capital Management, LAZ
Parking, and Worthington Industries.

“Today, only about 20% of a company’s market value can be accounted for by
financial and physical assets – which is what traditional financial reporting is
based on,” according to Willis.  ”Other factors – such as business
relationships, intellectual property, human capital, and market trends – make up
an increasing proportion of a company’s value.  The goal of integrated
reporting, which pulls information from a broad range of internal and external
sources, is to provide a more comprehensive and transparent view of a company’s
value from a short-, medium-, and long-term perspective.”

“Five years ago, integrated reporting was not very practical for most
companies to even consider,” said Dave Kasabian<STRONG>, senior
vice president of product marketing and strategy at
</STRONG>  ”However, now with Tagetik’s unified Financial
Performance Platform(TM), the concept of integrated reporting is actually within
reach.  We are honored to have Mike speak at our conference and bring this
topic to life for our customers.” Tagetik’s Financial Performance Platform
includes performance management processes, built-in ETL (extract, transform,
load) capabilities, analytics, and combined financial and narrative

Willis’ presentation will cover the fundamental concepts and elements of
integrated reporting, examples of companies already moving toward integrated
reporting, the role of technology and standards-setting organizations, the
economic benefits, and steps companies can take to evolve toward this more
strategic reporting approach.

Tagetik’s North American User Conference spans two days and includes sessions
on the future of business intelligence, corporate performance management trends,
advanced budgeting and planning, and data security, as well as detailed
product-related sessions. This year’s event will be held at
OFFSITE[TM] NYC, a state-of-the-art meeting venue in midtown
