What is our primary use case?

We mostly use ARIS for the documentation of processes, not for the architecture. It helps us find gaps and quickly analyze where the bottlenecks are. Within our organization, there are roughly 10 people using ARIS. We have a license, but our employees tend to use other software that they are more familiar with.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's really fast. It's much faster compared to Enterprise Architect."
  • "You can have a collaboration feature, but it's necessary to have ARIS Connect which is a separate, costly product."

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend ARIS. On a scale from one to ten, I would give ARIS a rating of eight. If they added a collaboration feature, I would give it a ten.
