At Tidemark our mission is to significantly alter and reshape how companies plan and forecast their businesses. When we founded Tidemark five years ago, we sought to unlock the information trapped throughout several enterprise legacy systems so finance and indeed business users at all levels can make better decisions that improve a company's performance. We fought hard to make sure we didn’t just make incremental improvements or simply airlift spreadsheets, rather we wanted to utilize what we learned from our days at OutlookSoft, listen to the voices of our community, and re-imagine FP&A and decision making for the office of the CFO in the 21st century.

That’s why each Tidemark release is packed with innovations shaped by input we receive directly from our most trusted customers. So as we launch Tidemark Fall ‘15 today, these remarkable companies – leaders in retail, hospitality, insurance, higher education and technology – deserve all the credit for the new features and unprecedented value built into this new release. It’s their achievement as much as it is ours.

Accelerating the rise of the CFO by delivering new capabilities that help finance play a more strategic role in digital strategy is a driving force for why the Fall ‘15 release is built and designed the way it is. CFOs tell us they need new ways of making decisions, and in order to do that effectively they need new data sets to analyze, correlate, measure and experiment with.

After all, helping CFOs get a handle on the analytics agenda will in turn help them get control of the digital agenda.

It is with that reasoning we’re so proud to introduce Tidemark Compete™ in our new Fall ‘15 release. Our users will be able to use our platform to weave together financial, operational, transactional, social, machine-driven and benchmark data into a cohesive whole and realize the vision they helped Tidemark create.  The Tidemark’s Fall ‘15 release brings:
