Tagetik, Microsoft and Featuring Leading Industry Analyst Firm Point of View

LUCCA, Italy, June 8, 2010 - Tagetik, a global provider of Performance Management, Financial
Governance and Business Intelligence software solutions, will be hosting a
web seminar to address the CFOs' growing need to provide organizations with a
'collaborative performance management' software aimed to improve
communication and decision-making throughout their budgeting, planning and
forecasting processes

Despite unprecedented levels of information and investment in technology,
many organizations still don't have the infrastructure to allow
multi-functional teams to quickly collaborate and accurately respond to
questions such as: 'why is our flagship product underperforming in one
market?' - 'what action can we take to quickly remedy the situation?' - 'if
we take these actions, can we cope with an increased production schedule?' -
'what's the impact on cash flow if we make these changes?'. We may have an
increased amount of data, but are we making better decisions?

On June 22nd at 11am EST, Tagetik will be offering a free 60 minute web
seminar to answer these critical scenarios facing the Office of Finance.
Featuring Gartner's Rita Sallam will be discussing Gartner's predictions for
'Collaborative Decision Making'. Manuel Vellutini, Tagetik EVP & Chief
Operating Officer, and Microsoft Corp. Directory BI Partners, Karl Leigh will
be presenting how Tagetik's flexible multi-platform and Microsoft's
sophisticated technology empower a highly collaborative budgeting
environment: 'Tagetik 3.0 Enabled by Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010'.

"With organizations increasingly seeking to introduce more rigorous and
reliable methods for perfecting budgeting and forecasting processes, many are
now looking towards a new generation of tools to help teams collaborate and
improve decision making," explains Vellutini. "Real business benefits,
business productivity and competitive advantage await those organizations
ready and willing to adopt new approaches to budgeting and collaboration."
