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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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