- 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.
