The Power of Analysis Combined with the Financial Intelligence in the Hands of Business Users

“I had  the pleasure of presenting at Tagetik’s interesting Finance Breakfast Seminar to a group of finance and IT professionals about the role of finance in Microsoft and the impact our technology can have on the day-to-day work life. With the expertise from a partner like Tagetik and our latest BI tools like PowerView, PowerMaps and PowerQuery, we can definitively accelerate the transformation of finance from transactional and backward looking departments to real forward looking and at the same time add value”

Juho Juotasniemi, Finance Controller, Microsoft UK

Last Monday we held our bi-annual breakfast seminar at Microsoft Cardinal Place, and as predicted the event was immensely popular and brought together finance professionals from all industries and sectors, including huge multinationals and regulatory bodies.  

The morning was kicked off by Microsoft UK CFO, Raja Krishnan who provided updates on finance and the changing digital climate of the world, for example by the end of this year there will be more mobiles than people on the planet!


So what does this mean for finance? And how are Tagetik and Microsoft following these trends in order to progress finance functions at the same pace?



Tagetik and Microsoft collaboration


An example of this progress in finance is demonstrated by Michael Flintoft, Head of ICT at HSCIC, who are the national provider of information, data and IT systems for commissioners, analysts and clinicians in health and social care. With the implementation of their new budgeting, Planning and Reporting tools they have managed to:

  • Significantly reduced their administration burden
  • Developed “Real Time” monitoring of the 15/16 budget setting process
  • Cut costs and more importantly saved time and resource
  • Increased insight into budgets
  • Improved data validation and reconciliation
