Likelihood to Recommend

ARIS Business Process Management (BPM)

  • Based on my experience with the tool it is more suited and user friendly in terms of creating process repositories, architecture frameworks and views.
  • The product does support integration with Alfabet, SAP Solution Manager, WebMethods, Apama etc
  • But these can be supported by attending extensive training provided by Software AG.

BWL is a great tool that can easily be used by business customers. It also is a great tool to build a Center of Excellence - providing customers the ability to manage their policies, processes, and decisions in one location. A single source of truth that can be leveraged to meet compliance, understand where information is being used, analysis of where laws and regulations impact processes and decisions. A tool to be leveraged to maintain knowledge and provide the ability to transfer knowledge to new employees. Organizations that used this tool to maintain and manage these assets will be able to make changes more rapidly and have confidence in the decisions they make because the tool is the single source of truth. BWL provides the tool to build a culture of continuous improvement and optimization within an organization that is willing to implement the discipline that goes along with the tool. BWL should be the central tool for all change management, lean six sigma, TQM and any other method or approach used by an organization.

Cons

ARIS Business Process Management (BPM)

  • Defining databases, use of entities and relationship diagrams, define data, like data models, there is still a part they could improve.
  • Providing more standard reports and improving on access rights and privileges functionality

  • Reporting should be improved to allow you to select the attributes to be downloaded (in Word files) and attributes from connected (in Excel).
  • In the diagrams, it should allow you to design the connectors yourself.

I am a BPM and Enterprise Architect Consultant and hence have been using different BPM and EA tools for consulting practice. Until now I have used Opentext Provision EA,Sparx EA, MS Visio and IBM Blueworks. All of the tools used are good and have their own unique features and capabilities. ARIS BPA is widely used by my current organization for different projects.

Alternatives Considered

ARIS Business Process Management (BPM)

Features like SAP Solman Sync, Alfabet EA integration (another Software AG product) and a well defined framework for BPM or any consulting practice across any verticals or domains is useful in a consulting practice, whether it's TOGAF methodology, running a BPM Lifecycle or Six Sigma process analysis.
The vendor continuously brings updated versions to the market with bug fixes from earlier versions and fulfills users'/customer expectations, so they are inline with continuous improvement.

Return on Investment

ARIS Business Process Management (BPM)

  • The technical support is good and response time is good as well.
  • Sometimes continuous upgrade to newer versions makes the customer environment unstable for short duration.

  • The primary benefit and ROI is around whiteboarding and process discovery.
  • It's lacking if you need to go down to level 3 documentation for system interfaces.
