"The innovations in 'Tagetik 5' combined with the technology advances of our key technology partners Microsoft and SAP help the finance department achieve more, do it faster and with less effort, from wherever they are: in the office, on the road, or in their living rooms," adds Marco Pierallini - EVP, Chief Development Officer at Tagetik. "'Tagetik 5' is designed to support the way finance organizations work, not dictate the way they work."

- From Close to Disclosure (consolidation, reporting and disclosure management)
