Tagetik in Touch 2015: A Conference of Champions

Tagetik for the Office of Finance


The theme of this year’s Tagetik in Touch conference (#tagetikintouch) was based on our company mission:  To help our customers be a champion of finance and a champion of business (#BeAChampion).

The conference agenda – with 75 presentations in nine different tracks – was designed to offer attendees examples of ways to streamline processes, to be more strategic, and to elevate the role of finance in business.  In fact, this year we created a new track, The Progressive CFO, dedicated entirely to topics relevant to senior finance executives.  If you haven’t had the opportunity to listen in on any of the webinars in our highly popular Progressive CFO series, I encourage you to do so. You’ll find recordings here.

Two topics, cloud computing and integrated reporting, permeated much of the conference conversation. Over the last year, we’ve seen ever-increasing interest in moving applications to the cloud from companies of all sizes.  We listened to market experts and customers on how to benefit from best-practice implementation strategies and maximize the cloud’s value in the finance space.

Attendees were also eager to learn more about integrated reporting – including near-term goals such as the creation of sustainability reports. The Generali Group’s case study on its path to integrated reporting and its role in supporting company strategy was also very popular.

I want to thank everyone who took time out of their schedules to be a part of this year’s event.  Attendees included leaders from Unicredit Group, Borealis, Timex Group, Hempel, Poste Italiane, Talanx, Hunterdon Medical Center, Wintrust Financial Corporation, Green Courte Partners, ONVZ, Erste Group Bank, Laing O’Rourke, and Raiffeisen Bank International.

I also want to thank our partners for their support and contributions to the conference’s success. This year’s platinum sponsors included Accenture, Deloitte, KPMG, Microsoft, PwC, Qlik, and SAP.  This impressive roster demonstrates the continued expansion of our global partner network to meet our customers’ specialized needs.

I sincerely hope everyone left the event with more knowledge, new contacts, and new ideas to put into practice.  As always, the Tagetik team left with new insights and perspectives, gained by talking with you.  We promise to earnestly apply what we learned to make our solution even better.

Watch for details on the first Tagetik in Touch event in North America, which will take place in beautiful New Orleans on April 24-27.   We guarantee it will be a conference you won’t want to miss!

For those of you who missed this year’s conference, a recording of the Tagetik in Touch opening keynote – delivered with my co-CEO, Marco Pierallini – is available here.
