1 Windows Azure White Paper Tagetik and Azure: Industrial Strength Financial Performance Management on the Cloud without Compromise Author: Contributors: Dave Kasabian Marco Pierallini Published: July 2012 Summary: As the 2011 Microsoft ISV Line of Business Partner of the Year, Tagetik has proven to be at the forefront of leveraging Microsoft technology to empower business users. This innovative use of Microsoft technology is continuing with the recently announced support of Microsoft Windows Azure for cloud-based deployment. With Microsoft Azure, Tagetik can provide the proven capabilities of its on-premises offering on the cloud without the need for a separately developed product or separate code base. Customers no longer have to choose between superior capabilities and cloud deployment; now finance can have the cloud without compromise.

2 Windows Azure White Paper TABLE OF CONTENTS EXECUTIVE SUMMARY GETTING FINANCE TO THE CLOUD, WITHOUT COMPROMISE EXTENDING THE POWER OF TAGETIK TO SMALL BUSINESSES ONE CODE BASE, MULTIPLE DEPLOYMENT OPTIONS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY FROM BOTTOM TO CLOUD TAGETIK AND MICROSOFT DELIVER THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

3 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Tagetik 4.0 customers will soon have the ability to take advantage of Microsoft Azure to deploy Tagetik on the cloud. The deployed solution has the same functionality and code base as the on-premises version of Tagetik so finance organizations will not have to make trade-offs to embrace the cloud to address their financial performance management requirements (planning, forecasting, financial close and consolidation, reporting, and disclosure). Tagetik deployed on Microsoft Windows Azure provides a scalable and configurable solution that provides all the strengths of an on-premises solution with the benefits of cloud deployment. Now, even large companies can consider the cloud a viable option for sophisticated financial processes that historically were deployed on-premises. GETTING FINANCE TO THE CLOUD, WITHOUT COMPROMISE Finance organizations are often laggards when it comes to cloud adoption. According to Gartner, although SaaS is rapidly moving into mainstream adoption, finance organizations will not lead in SaaS adoption. * Some of the reticence of Finance is because their processes require flexible configuration that many SaaS solutions simply can t support. Rather than forcing Finance to choose between a lighter version with less flexibility, Tagetik on Windows Azure gives Finance the best of both worlds. Tagetik also leverages the new Windows Azure IaaS option for deploying SQL Server 2012 and SharePoint 2010 on Windows Azure virtual machines ensuring that Tagetik can meet the scalability needs of large enterprises in a cloud environment. The deep, configurable functionality, enterprise scalability, and reduced infrastructure costs give customers the cloud without compromise. Working with our partners and taking them to the cloud is a key strategic goal at Microsoft. - Pietro Scott Jovane, former President and CEO at Microsoft Italy

4 EXTENDING THE POWER OF TAGETIK TO SMALL BUSINESSES Tagetik is a solution that finance organizations in some of the largest organizations in the world have selected because of it s robust functionality, scalability, and ability to address multiple finance processes in a single solution. But the reality is that small companies can have complex processes just like their larger brethren. But they don t have the resources (both financial and technical) to support the type of solution they need. By deploying Tagetik, on the cloud small businesses can take full advantage of the superior functionality without having to worry about capital outlay or infrastructure requirements. Windows Azure deployment and subscription pricing allow smaller companies access to the same powerful solution but at a total price point that makes sense for their organization. ONE CODE BASE, MULTIPLE DEPLOYMENT OPTIONS Developing Tagetik to support Microsoft Windows Azure has enabled Tagetik to maintain only one code base and to provide the same functionality to customers regardless of which deployment option they prefer. With Microsoft Window Azure Tagetik can be deployed in a on-premises, SaaS, hosted, or hybrid environment whichever makes the most sense for the specific organization. These options give full flexibility in deciding if and when to make software upgrades and provides infrastructure elasticity with a virtual infrastructure that is allocated and dedicated to the specific application customer, not shared across many organizations. This way customers can focus first and foremost on selecting the solution that best meets their specific needs, knowing that the selected deployment method will not impact their solution. All future enhancements are available on both deployment options and customers can even choose a hybrid environment if they wish. With Tagetik and Azure they have full functionality and full flexibility. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY FROM BOTTOM TO CLOUD From data storage all the way through to information delivery, Tagetik takes advantage of Microsoft Technology. Microsoft SQL Server 2012, PowerView, Reporting Services, Analysis Services, PerformancePoint Services, SharePoint, and Azure are all leveraged to deliver the most powerful and unified Performance Management solution available. The deep built-in financial intelligence in Tagetik and the single technology stack from bottom to cloud provides a solution that both Finance and IT will agree on.

5 We have supported the Tagetik development team to architect its cloud solution to better leverage our technology platform. We are pleased that one of our most strategic ISV partners has shown its commitment to our cloud platform, providing winning solutions for new valuable customers. - Silvia Candiani, Marketing & Operations Director at Microsoft Italy \ TAGETIK AND MICROSOFT DELIVER THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS Tagetik delivers the deep finance domain expertise, functionality, and built-in financial intelligence that the finance organization needs to do their job effectively and improve corporate performance. Microsoft provides the technology we need to make this possible. Our customers get the depth of functionality and unified financial processes without having to worry about multiple products, technologies and integration. Microsoft technology enables the fast performance and scalability, strong visualization, self-service financial analytics, collaboration capabilities and deployment options that our customers demand. With our strategic partnership with Microsoft we can focus our efforts on what we do best, understanding and addressing the needs of finance, and let Microsoft focus on what they do best, providing high-performance technology on premise and in the cloud. The result is a battle-tested and scalable solution that provides the performance and confidence finance requires on a technology that IT trusts with a much lower TCO than competitive products. * Source: User Survey Analysis: Customers Rate Their Corporate Performance Management Vendors Published: 23 May 2012 Analyst(s): Christopher Iervolino, Neil Chandler.
