Tagetik: unified Performance Management Suite

Tagetik : a "unified" Performance Management Suite

Tagetik is a Corporate Performance Management-solution for Legal
and Management Consolidation, Financial Close, Forecasting, Budgeting and
Disclosure Management.

Tagetik was founded in 1986 in Tuscany, Italy by Pierluigi
Pierallini. In the beginning Tagetik was organized as a family business, but
with a combination of home grown talent and international executives Tagetik
was transformed to a global scale business. However, client-centricity always
remained the most important company value.

The name Tagetik originates from the Etruscan "Libri
Tagetici”. In these stories a legendary boy named "Tagete” appeared, with the
knowledge and wisdom of an old man. Other inspiration came from the word "get”,
for the retrieval of information.

The vision of Tagetik is paraphrased by "Business

This is an emerging theory which suggests that complexity and
simplicity are complementary. This is reflected in the fact that all
Consolidation, Financial Close, Budgeting, Forecasting and Disclosure-products
are grouped into one major product. The complexity is captured behind the scenes,
so end-users experience Tagetik as being user-friendly. 

Tagetik had a history of gradual improvements through the following releases:

  • Tagetik 3.0 was released in 2009, designed to
    help CFO’s and CIO’s simplify the complex business processes of Legal
    and Management Consolidation, Financial Close, Forecasting, Budgeting and
    Disclosure Management. Thanks to the
    cross-platform design of Tagetik, the existing technology can be leveraged through all processes.
    Hence, the total "cost of ownership" can be reduced to up to 50%.
  • Tagetik 4.2 was released in 2012 with for the
    first time a fully redesigned user interface with process-centric navigation.
    The workflow-manager was made more comprehensive across multiple finance
  • Tagetik 5 was released at the end of 2014. HTML5
    became incorporated in Tagetik, so for the first time Tagetik is accessible
    through mobile devices (this is called Tagetik Anywhere). Users can create
    their own homepages to match their usage of Tagetik (reports, entry forms,
    commonly used tasks, ...). Reports can be viewed over Excel or over the Web. There
    is also a new Self-service Dashboard capability. Here, all users can visualize their
    key trends and indicators. Tagetik can now also run on in-memory technology of Oracle,
    Microsoft SQL Server or SAP Hana.

In the past 10 years, Tagetik convinced more and more customers.
