LUCCA, Italy, June 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Tagetik, a global provider of Performance Management, Enterprise Governance, Risk Compliance and Business Intelligence software solutions, today announced the upcoming 4th edition of its User Conference held in Lucca (Italy), on September 23rd-24th ( ). Throughout the annual event, global customers, analysts, partners, industry experts and Tagetik will listen to the latest, hottest market trends and illustrate the growing need to integrate collaborative technologies into Performance Management and Business Intelligence processes.

In most companies today, it is difficult to bring key decision-makers together at all - let alone on a regular basis. As a result, organizations are able to simply monitor results rather than manage real business performance. That is why companies should look for solutions that truly involve the entire organization by facilitating collaboration between workgroups, creating a common understanding of shared objectives, communicating lines of action in a clear, timely manner as well as improving operational and strategic decision-making. At Tagetik, we have worked closely with CFOs and CIOs for the past twenty years, explains Manuel Vellutini, Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Tagetik. And because we understand their business problems and listen to their changing needs, we have long shared the vision to make Business Intelligence and Corporate Performance Management processes as collaborative as possible. Now, all this is real with a single platform that unites financial and operational processes with advanced business collaboration features.

Performance Management extended to 'Collaborative Decision-Making' is the new challenge for those complex organizations willing to manage business performance more efficiently, make business information readily accessible to everyone, implement corporate strategies more effectively, and improve the quality of decision-making. Tagetik, in collaboration with numerous market experts - including Microsoft, Gartner, KPMG, Age Consulting, Altea, Excent, Sysdata Italia, ANDAF -, will discuss how to adopt and, definitely, profit from the new CPM - 'Collaborative' Performance Management.

The audience, which last year saw over 300 participants, will also listen to exclusive guest speakers such as Rita Sallam, research director at Gartner, who will explain how to improve the quality and transparency of budgeting and forecasting processes with 'Collaborative Decision-Making' tools, and Evan Rosen, an internationally-recognized collaboration and communication strategist, presenting his book 'The Culture of Collaboration', Gold Medal Winner in the 2008 Axiom Business Book Awards. Finally, a panel discussion on 'The Rise of Collaboration in Managing Business Performance' where influential speakers will debate their point of views and share their experiences from the field.

Special guest star will be Matteo Manassero, who at the tender age of seventeen, is already one of the world's most promising young Italian professionals ( Many managers around the world share a common passion for the game of golf: we decided to organize this cup as an informal end to our annual User Conference.
