The stability of the ARIS BPM platform is quite good. The nice thing about it is the central database, where we can use all of our data. We can even manage users.

ARIS is probably the most mature product in terms of modeling an enterprise architecture so that it has context.
The initial setup and installation are very straightforward.

The EPC modeling is very detailed, the semantic check is helpful, and auto-layout simplifies the formatting.

The most valuable feature in the latest versions is the connect portal, where you can do very simple modeling using the web-based portal.

The most valuable feature is the process documentation. For us, ARIS is a lifestyle more than a tool. It helps us learn how to think and how to plan for our system.

The ability to sort via multiple criteria to identify the relationships you need for a specific object.

The ease of use is the most valuable. I have tried a number of BPMN packages, and I find the user interface of ARIS BPM easier and more intuitive than others. If your team is knowledgeable on BPMN, it is really pretty easy to figure out on your own because it adheres to the standards extremely well. I have tried Bizagi, BizFlow, and a variety of such solutions, and I just liked ARIS BPM better.

It provides the discovery functionality, and you can have a simulation on top of it to get your design corrected to ensure that it is within the right state of parameters. It is a complete package that you can use from strategy to execution because you have the design layer, and within the design, you can also do analytics.

With ARIS BPM, the script creation is quite cumbersome. With version ten, we needed our developers to do scripting.

The interface is a little archaic.
The workflow approval process could be represented better in the overviews.

The model graphics can be exported in PDF, but the model is too small to read.

If you want to create new reports then you have to use JavaScript, or ARIS script as they call it, which is beyond the competencies of most people.

There is a lot of room for improvement. They need to increase the performance of the system flow. They need to support it more. ARIS Process Governance is still quite basic, and they are using an old BPM and process automation module.

The governance mechanism could be better, as could automation.

I use it strictly for developing the business process model. I don't use it for the actual automation. I do that with Vtenext. I have standardized on Vtenext, and I don't use ARIS BPM anymore. The Vtenext UI is just as good, and it is much more tightly coupled to the underlying object model. I can get more done in one session with Vtenext rather than first going to ARIS BPM, then importing, and having to edit it for tight coupling.

Its governance tool and integration with ESB and execution engine can be improved. Their partner support can also be improved.

Integration with third-party tools should be improved (e.g. based on APIs).
