LUCCA, Italy, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

In-memory technology and self-service Business Intelligence empower Tagetik 4.0 with new functionality and extend customer value

Tagetik, a global provider of enterprise software solutions for Performance Management, Enterprise Governance, Risk & Compliance and Business Intelligence, today announced that Tagetik 4.0 takes full advantage of the brand-new Microsoft SQL Server 2012 technology (http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver), equipping the Office of Finance with in-memory analytics, easy to use dashboard capabilities, and powerful self-service business intelligence (BI).

SQL Server 2012 is a complete set of enterprise-ready data technologies and tools that help people derive the most value from information at the lowest total-cost-of-ownership (TCO). Companies can thus be ready for the most demanding enterprise workloads, employ more productive management and application development tools, as well as have greater, faster access and deliver pervasive insight on valuable financial and operational performance data developed and stored in Tagetik 4.0.

"SQL Server 2012 will provide to our customers in-memory analytics through the new Analysis Services tabular models; greater confidence with uptime, blazing-fast query and reporting performance; enhanced security features for mission critical workloads; and greater decision-making capabilities," says Marco Pierallini, Executive Vice President, Chief Development Officer at Tagetik (http://www.tagetik.com/company/management/marco-pierallini). "Tagetik has been working with Microsoft during the development and testing phases of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 in order to allow our customers to take full advantage of the improvements and enhancements by fully leveraging the new SQL Server 2012 features and the SharePoint front-end. We will continue to be on the cutting edge with Microsoft's technology stack, including adopting Windows Azure and SQL Azure as the platform for our cloud offering," continues Pierallini.

Dave Kasabian, Corporate Vice President of Product Marketing at Tagetik (http://www.tagetik.com/company/management/dave-kasabian) adds: "Tagetik has proven to be at the forefront of leveraging Microsoft technology to empower business users. New functionality in SQL Server 2012 will provide our customers with break-through insight via managed self-service data exploration and stunning interactive data visualization capabilities. Microsoft technology enables the fast performance and scalability, strong visualization, self-service financial analytics and collaboration capabilities that our customers demand. This release of SQL Server is another example of how our strong technology partnership with Microsoft benefits our customers. The partnership enables us to focus our efforts on what we do best - understanding and addressing the needs of the Office of Finance - while Microsoft focuses on what they do best - providing high-performance technology on premise and in the cloud."

"The combination of SQL Server 2012 and Tagetik will give customers in any business sector powerful new capabilities to gain insights from their data," says Bob Baker, Director, SQL Server at Microsoft Corp. "We are excited to work with Tagetik as we launch SQL Server 2012."  

The achievements of the relationship between Microsoft and Tagetik over the last several years include not only the SQL Server 2012 launch but also winning the highly prestigious Microsoft ISV/Software Line of Business Partner of the Year award in June 2011 (http://www.tagetik.com/events-news/press-releases/2011/microsoft-award-2011) and the launch of a major release of their joint application platform named 'Tagetik 4.0 Enabled by Microsoft® SharePoint® Server 2010' (http://www.tagetik.com/events-news/press-releases/2012/bi-summit-2012) in January 2012.
