Cycling and Software: Team Up to Be a Champion!

 Tagetik CPM sotware solution



Competitive cycling is unique in sports:  in order to win you almost always need the right mix between team and individual effort. A strong team without a star performer seldom wins, likewise a star without a strong team does not get very far.
In 2015 the Tagetik sponsored cycling team, La Bagarre, added several top cyclists to form a real team around our star performer. As a result, we won many big races and podiums this past spring and hope to continue to do the same for the rest of the season.
The software business is becoming more and more like cycling. Excellence cannot be achieved alone. You need to be open to the idea of working with others (including sometimes your competitors!) whilst at the same time striving for excellence in your own area.
Customers demand a complete and sustainable solution which can keep up with the acceleration of business and technology opportunities. This requires the contribution from many adjacent areas for any given solution at any given moment.
Within the CPM market,  fast developments in cloud computing, in-memory computing, predictive analytics, self-service BI, data visualization, mobility, managed services, implementation methodologies are opening up vast opportunities.
But not one player is able to offer everything and win in isolation – not even the mega vendors: who would have thought we’d ever see Microsoft integrate Office with the Apple world?
This is why Tagetik partners closely with ISVs like Microsoft, SAP and Qlik and consulting players like PwC, KPMG, Accenture, Deloitte, Ernst & Young and others.   
Each brings us something special to strengthen our solution, as well as an eco-system we can leverage for mutual advantage. And customers, by teaming up with Tagetik and its Partners, benefit enormously in the process.
In fact the theme of this year’s Tagetik in Touch will be “Be a Champion”.
So, in CPM and in cycling, team up with Tagetik to be a Champion!
