What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that you can relate different aspects of an organization to each other, and you can clearly define the rates seen in the application. And, with all of the reporting you can clearly see which resource is doing the most and which resource is not doing enough. So, there is an over or under capacity visualization.

What needs improvement?

One of the biggest challenges is to realistically enable the defined structures of the processes that you have in ARIS documented, and then actually implement them in the business. If you could see the way those structures and processes are not used then you could identify the bottlenecks that are the real issues and make the necessary changes. But, instead,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

What is most valuable?

Platform that it supports covers legacy and new. Caters to moving older objects into an integrated DB, relatively popular ones: SQL, Oracle, etc.

What needs improvement?

No product is complete. As technologies evolve, so must the tools to support them. End-to-end visibility and real-time are areas that will need greater attention.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Staunch user of Visio, ArchiMate. A requirement for a client, decided to explore deeper. Alfabet.

What other advice do I have?

Although digital business transformation (e.g. IoT, Blockchain) is top of mind for many IT professionals, many companies are facing legacy systems consuming operating budgets and... more»

It is on the higher side.

Which solutions did we use previously?

No previous solution was used.

What other advice do I have?

Excellent product if process modeling/documentation is its primary purpose, not automation of processes.
