Moving from an old version or legacy product to a new product upgrade or latest version of the product requires a transition with detailed planning and expert advice. It is generally true that the purpose of any migration is to implement one or more deliverables that will be used by ongoing organization to generate a predefined Business Value like better customer support, faster time to market, cost savings, etc.

Business Value is realized after the project is complete. It is therefore necessary to plan and execute the project so that a firm foundation for business value realization is created.


ARIS has a flexible architecture that can scale from a single user to hundreds of users geographically dispersed. The Web-based clients based on Java can be launched in the Web browser via a central link. Alternatively, they can be installed as a desk top application via setup or software distribution. In both cases, any required client update can be set up and controlled centrally to avoid follow-up costs for a further rollout and for associated quality assurance measures.


ARIS Platform modeling products support both general business users and technical analysts and IT personnel. ARIS Business Designer is intended for more general business users, while ARIS Business Architect, ARIS Business Simulator and ARIS IT Architect are targeted at more technical users like IT architects, project managers, and systems designers. However, all models created in various ARIS products and components are connectable and shareable because they utilize the same repository.


ARIS Business Architect is one of the few tools on the market that supports the entire major frameworks, including Zachman, TOGAF, TEAF, FEAF, DoDAF (C4ISR), NAF, ArchiMate. In addition, ARIS features its own proprietary framework known as “ARIS House.” The Analysis and Process Modeling include Enterprise and Organization Models, Defining Processes and Simulation.


“ARIS Value Engineering” is the principal methodology for business process management. The ARIS methodology includes over 150 model types and hundreds of objects. Users can also modify the appearance of objects. In addition, ARIS Concept provides a guideline for developing, optimizing, and implementing integrated application systems. At the same time, it shows business administration specialists how to view, analyze, document, and implement information systems. This ARIS Concept approach is broader than just systems development. It supports enterprise architectures, business process improvement and governance, risk, and compliance approaches. It also includes some standard approaches, as well as proprietary approaches.


ARIS Business Architect includes a GUI for users to evaluate and run reports and analyses at the group, model, or object level of the ARIS metamodel. ARIS Business Architect includes more than 100 predefined standard reports, which users can modify. Users can also use a Report Wizard designed to assist in creating a report by accessing report scripts included with the ARIS Business Architect package, or that have been created (i.e., user-defined) with the integrated ARIS Script Editor (IDE) and JavaScript.
