ARIS Platform

ARIS Platform for Process Excellence
This document is intended for administrators who want to gain an overview of possible ARIS scenarios and require a basis for planning their hardware and software requirements. With ARIS Platform for Process Excellence (ARIS Platform), you have a product range for documenting, analyzing, simulating, controlling, and optimizing company-wide and inter-business processes in both LANs and WANs. For example, users all over the world can access and edit enterprise models. Depending on the number of accessing users, different levels can be configured that support even a large multi-user environment with several hundred users. Of course, the integrity of firewall architectures is also preserved. ARIS Platform is divided into four areas. Each area contains customized products designed to perform specific tasks. ARIS Platform provides all the tools for the Business Process Management cycle that companies need to manage a culture of continuous change. These tools can be used to manage more than just the operational processes - they can be applied to the process of Business Process Management itself. ARIS Platform supports this process as it is an operational tool for managing business processes. All relevant target groups within the company are involved, including the organizational department and management, operating and IT departments, as well as the controllers.

Implementing new business strategies requires that besides being flexible in terms of their business processes, companies are also able to transfer process optimization and innovation to the world of IT systems: Aligning Business Processes and IT. ARIS Platform can seamlessly link business and IT. With its highly scaleable and combinable product range, ARIS Platform offers solutions for the entire business process lifecycle – from Web-based description, analysis, and optimization of business processes through to software engineering, SAP integration and continuous process controlling. IDS Scheer promises to support each customer in every aspect of the BPM cycle. Honoring this promise in terms of software is the task of ARIS Platform. With ARIS Platform, companies can set up individual architectures via the Web, structure their business processes faster, publish them and implement them in executable information systems.

With the central database server and a clustering of several application servers. ARIS Controlling Platform solutions monitor and optimize business processes.g. ARIS Business Optimizer serves to analyze KPIs. such as an ARIS database. and graphically display a company’s current processes in real time. IT. All ARIS Clients access the database server via ARIS Business Server and thus work on the basis of the same data. for target costing or to set up BSC systems as part of the BSC solution. All solutions can be used together in a distributed scenario. analysis. they can be installed as a desk top application via setup or software distribution. a large number of modelers who use ARIS Business Designer can be managed by relatively few users with ARIS Business Architect (access privileges. For instance. document. companies achieve a consistent implementation of their corporate strategy from KPIs to processes.). and ARIS UML Designer. With ARIS BSC. analyzing.g. conventions/filters. such as ARIS Business Architect. Due to the fact that they are Web-based solutions. Data sources can include a variety of source systems. In principle. ARIS for SAP helps design the process architecture of SAP solutions that have been optimally adapted to the company’s business processes.System White Paper The main ARIS Platform products are briefly described and classified below. This saves time and guarantees the quality of the software developed.g. The Web-based clients can be launched in the Web browser via a central link.1 System Architecture The ARIS Platform system architecture enables internationally active companies to set up distributed scenarios for designing. ARIS Platform offers a high level of system scalability and availability. ISDN) and beyond firewall limits. and optimization of business processes. while maintaining the relevant data in a central company repository. Since ARIS Business Architect is Web-capable. and optimizing process. 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. followed by continuous target system monitoring. in various areas such as process cost management. 4 . These products are designed to work even with a very low bandwidth (e. evaluate. company-wide modeling. available reports. occasional users to perform modeling. e. etc.. ARIS Process Performance Manager is a patented client/server software that uses KPIs to automatically visualize. as well as the setup of IT architectures via the Internet. ARIS Business Architect and ARIS Business Designer enable distributed. BPM should begin with the definition and implementation of corporate strategy. ARIS Business Designer paves the way to professional BPM as it provides user-friendly functionality that enables even unskilled. ARIS Business Designer. ARIS Toolset and ARIS Easy Design continue to be the leading Windows-based solutions for designing business processes. for the purpose of cost calculations. access a centrally set up and managed ARIS Business Server within a 3-level architecture from various international locations. To guarantee optimum load balancing and increase reliability (see page 8). more than one application server (ARIS Business Server) can be used. Companies can use ARIS UML Designer to model all UML diagrams on the basis of UML standard 1.. and software architectures. 1. The scalability is also reflected at the level of the products in use. ARIS Business Architect is a Web-based tool that comes with extended administration and analysis functions for the skilled ARIS user or administrator. Users are optimally supported in the process design by the intuitive user interface and a variety of automated procedures.4 and establish a relation to ARIS models. Thus. the gap between business and IT is closed. SAP systems. technological and technical content is integrated in one tool. A central database server (e. Oracle) is used for data management. Alternatively. etc. With ARIS Implementation Platform products. Web-based products. ARIS Risk & Compliance Manager is workflow software that applies various rules to verify the operability of internal control systems. administration can also be performed locally.
