Twice Software Named as a Distributor for the Country

LUCCA, Italy and SAO PAULO, Brazil, March 30, 2011 - Tagetik, a global provider of Performance Management, Financial
Governance and Business Intelligence software solutions, today announced the
beginning of its operation in Brazil (www.tagetik.com.br) and a
partnership with Twice Software (www.twice.com.br), confirming the
company's commitment to expand its footprint within the growing Brazilian
economic market.

Heading the new operation based in Sao Paulo is Antonio Rihl, who has
over twenty-five years of experience in managing leading software and IT
companies like Business Objects (now part of SAP) and Hyperion (now part of
Oracle). Antonio Rihl will report directly to Tagetik's Chief Operating
Officer, Manuel Vellutini, and will be responsible for the development of the
Tagetik brand, products and partnerships in the Brazilian market.

"Brazil is a unique market. It's huge in potential and full of contrasts,
offering profitable growth and big risk factors and that's the sweet spot for
business performance management solutions, especially for budgeting, planning
and forecasting," says Antonio Rihl. "In a fast changing economic scenario,
the competitive advantage will come from the ability to manage business
performance effectively and efficiently, being able to plan and control costs
and cash flow, understand profitability and quickly adhere to financial
reporting standards as well as new regulatory reporting requirements of a
global economy. Covering all this aspects with an integrated approach and
out-of-the-box, built-in financial intelligence, Tagetik should be soon one
of the first choices for financial executives and their teams when searching
for a financial management software."

"Twice Software is a leading consulting company specializing in corporate
performance management, business intelligence, data warehousing, data
integration and master data management," explains Roberto Marques, Managing
Director at Twice Software. "The company provides end-to-end services from
data architecture, implementation, project management, long term support, and
training. Twice's competitive advantage is derived from our extensive team of
experts with the highest level of knowledge and competence who provide our
customers the most innovative, reliable, and consistent results on every
project," he continues. "We are very excited and committed in sharing
Tagetik's vision and simplifying complex business processes for future
Brasilian customers. We firmly believe that Tagetik 3.0 is a powerful and
robust software solution that delivers full scalability and extensive
functionalities in all Performance Management and Financial Governance

"We continue to expand internationally through our distributor network as
well as investing heavily in marketing and partnering," explains Manuel
, EVP Chief Operating Officer at Tagetik. "The opening of Tagetik
Brazil and the partnership with a system integrator like Twice Software are a
huge opportunity to capitalize in order to support our global expansion and
start gaining attention in international markets such as Latin America, other
than Western Europe and the U.S."
