ARIS in a nutshell
The process tools ARIS have gone through more than 20 years of successful history and in that time, they became a well-recognized standard and worldwide leader for a wide field of the BPM (Business Process Management). They provide a complete solution in a way of connecting strategy and a process design, its analysis, optimization, implementation and controlling, including the unique and patented technology for the measuring of the process performance.
The basic building blocks, on which the whole ARIS portfolio stands, are ARIS Architect and ARIS Designer modelling tools. In other cases, there is a version of a thin client ARIS Connect Designer, with which, after initiation, all you need is a web browser. Those tools provide a complex support for the BPA (Business Process Analysis).
ARIS also provides extension packs available for the use in other related fields such as EAM - Enterprise Architecture Management, ARIS for SAP solution, Business Strategy or Simulation as well. These ones adding extra features and specific capabilities.
Regarding use cases covering other specific areas of usage there are still other tools available for measuring of process performance - ARIS Process Performance Manager as well as for governance, risk and compliance management - ARIS Risk & Compliance Manager.
All of these tools share data within one company database on ARIS Connect Server, that, at the same time, provides the support of a teamwork through the usage of social networks, pre-set workflow for the support of a process management and basic DMS (Document Management System) capabilities as well.
ARIS Viewer provides capabilities of viewing and commenting of process models stored in database handled by ARIS Connect Server. ARIS Viewer is therefore no other specific product. These are only licenses authorizing the licensed number of users to access the ARIS Connect Server through a Web browser for both displaying and limited editing the contents of the process database there.
ARIS is also available as a service within a cloud-based subscription model. There are three different editions available - Elements, Advanced, Enterprise. See more at ARIS cloudu.
