ARIS

ARIS is well suited when we want to understand the interrelationship between different processes and their decencies on systems etc. It allows to create an integrated view with easy navigation from one process to another and allows to add information like metrics, risks, cycle time, FTE, etc. Overall, it is a great tool for modeling and analysis.Though it offers BPMN notation, it has limited compatibility with some other tools, hence if the objective is to implement these processes using tools like PEGA then is it not suitable. Further, it is very high priced, so for basic modeling, it might give the right ROI.

GlobiFlow for Podio

GlobiFlow should be considered advanced software for a limited number of employees. If users of GlobiFlow don't work together, they could easily create processes that cancel out other work. GlobiFlow works very well when one person understands the program well and uses it to help coworkers think through processes. The most helpful way we've used it is in automating our hiring process somewhat. Instead of receiving hundreds of emails with job applications, we set up an app in Podio and used Globiflow to notify supervisors when applications were received through our website. As a candidate moves through the hiring process, GlobiFlow processes provide triggers to help us remember what needs to happen at each step along the way by automatically generating tasks, emails, and items in other apps.

GlobiFlow for Podio

  • GlobiFlow allows one event to prompt a task or notification automatically, which greatly improves workflows and internal communications.
  • GlobiFlow makes it possible to automate some interactions we have with people outside the agency, for example, responding immediately to an application when it is received, creating a Sharefile folder to collect submitted documents all in one secure location, etc.
  • GlobiFlow suggests new ways of setting up workflows that makes us think through and improve our processes.
  • GlobiFlow helps us keep track of events in new and improved ways. For example, when a leave request is approved GlobiFlow automates the process for putting that date on an agency-wide calendar.
  • GlobiFlow helps us use Podio and Sharefile better so we communicate with employees in other offices and out in the field more effectively.

Cons

ARIS

  • 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

GlobiFlow for Podio

  • There is a steep learning curve for your typical PC user. I've used GlobiFlow for over a year but there are many things I still don't understand about it. The help pages are somewhat helpful, but there is a whole vocabulary associated with GlobiFlow that is a bit mysterious at the front end.
  • Any limitations in Podio are repeated in GlobiFlow.
  • Setting up processes in GlobiFlow is somewhat complicated, which makes it a little tedious when employees change and responsibilities shift, as they often do in a growing organization. Naming your processes well is important so you can go back and find places where changes need to be made.

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.

It has good, even complex functionality that is provided by its library and ability to create relations between items, yet it is not hard to use. Anyone can use it in a short time. It provides reporting abilities and good documentation with the availability of exporting options. The only drawback I have seen was user management/login issues.

Alternatives Considered

ARIS

ARIS has its own EPC notation which is very easy, hence a preferred notation amongst many. It has some enhanced features like the ability to create custom reports, queries, adhoc analysis, and simulation, which not all tools offer. However, it is very high priced compared to some other tool.

GlobiFlow for Podio

We acquired GlobiFlow at the same time that we GlobiFlow Podio and ShareFile. GlobiFlow helped us use both Podio and ShareFile more efficiently. Podio has an internal automation function that performs some of the same tasks as GlobiFlow but is far more limited, which is why we decided to go ahead and learn how to implement GlobiFlow.
