Tidemark Selected as "Cool Vendor" by Leading Analyst Firm

Cloud, Mobile and Collaborative Technologies Identified as Innovative, Impactful and Intriguing

Tidemark, the mobile-first enterprise analytics company, today announced it has been recognized in the “Cool Vendors in Finance and Procurement, 2012” report authored by Gartner, Inc. analysts Nigel Rayner, John E. Van Decker, Christopher Iervolino, Deborah R. Wilson, published April 17, 2012. The report focuses on new technologies to obtain and leverage analytics to manage accounting, procurement, or supplier performance management.

“We consider our inclusion as a “Cool Vendor” by Gartner as affirmation for the need to reinvent analytics and performance management to meet the challenges of today’s enterprise,” said Christian Gheorghe, Founder and CEO of Tidemark. “Our primary goal has been to reimagine how analytics are both consumed and acted on by everyone in the business using the latest cloud technologies and a mobile-first experience to enable you to manage your entire business in real-time from a mobile device.”

According to the report, “Small vendors are leveraging technologies such as the cloud, mobile and collaboration to deliver solutions that offer new ways of executing and improving existing processes … IT leaders, finance and procurement professionals shouldn’t just focus on larger, more established vendors when evaluating finance and procurement solutions; otherwise, they will miss the opportunity to add innovation to their application portfolio.”

Tidemark offers an innovative suite of cloud, social and mobile powered enterprise performance management applications: metrics management, strategic, financial and operational planning, budgeting and forecasting, and profitability modeling. The Tidemark applications are built “mobile first” in recognition that today’s workforce is geographically dispersed, mobile and frequently working from a variety of devices. With real-time collaboration built into the applications, Tidemark enables the right people to discuss and take immediate action based a single version of data that is easy to use and can be configured by any business person.
