ARIS Cloud Reviews
Jul 23 2019
What is most valuable?All the features are good. They all compare feature for feature very, very well to other solutions. It can do anything. In terms of using the cloud version, if you're somebody who, like myself, has got a lot of experience and understands measures and notations and things, basically it's unrestricted. You can do so many things. There's lots of stuff you can do in there and if you're a good field… more»
What needs improvement?What I don't like is that it's got release cycle management at the model level. It makes the assumption that all the objects that you've been using on the model are actually also good quality. It doesn't really ensure that it is good quality with the latest version. You can create tons of duplicates in Aris, that's the problem. If you're not careful and you don't have very good governance in… more»
What other advice do I have?The majority of the time I've been using a hosted version and not the Cloud version, the Connect one. I've used the Connect one as well. Architecturally they're the same. They still have groups or folders. You still have a screen which is white when you start open and you have to put things on the screen. It's pretty much the same logic except that it's now cloud-based. It's slightly easier, and… more»

Opens collaboration opportunities between team members within the organization where they can submit change requests and navigate processes
What is most valuable?Aris Connect opens collaboration opportunities between team members within the organization where they can actually submit change requests, navigate processes, and offer comments. It opens up the potential for BPM within the organization. I didn't see such an angle of a BPM portal with any other products. So I would say that's the best selling feature.
What needs improvement?They need to revamp a whole module. This module has been in place for 16 years. It hasn't been updated since then. It's actually a separate license on its own. It's a disaster. It needs to be more functional. It doesn't work easily. It takes too much time to just create a simple flow, in terms of the process and governance structure. If you have multiple tiers of approvals into an update of a… more»
What other advice do I have?Don't be fooled by the potential, take it slow and step by step. It's a long journey, to be honest, to adopt a BPM engine. Involve your IT team, don't look at it from only a business design because the tool itself is meaningless unless you combine it with web method. Skew the design and make sure that the business elements that you're designing have actual merit in your back-end legacy; or that… more»

What is most valuable?The cloud version has the advantage that you can work on it from anywhere. You can add data from your emails that are in the cloud, or use your mobile devices. This tool has methods for modeling processes, which is our requirement. If you… more»
What needs improvement?I would like to see the cost of the licenses improved. The trial version of this solution does not give you enough time to learn how to use it, so it should be extended to one year. It would be an improvement if ARIS Mashup were integrated… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?There is a student version of this solution that can be used for free. There is also a trial version that can be used free for thirty days.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Prior to this solution, I used Enterprise Architect. The main difference between these two solutions is licensing. The modeling capability is similar, although with ARIS you have a clear methodology. With Enterprise Architect, you have to… more»
What other advice do I have?From my perspective, the cloud aspect of this solution is only a way to store data. It doesn't matter if the application is in the cloud or on-premises on my computer. I think that if you use the solution on the cloud, then it takes over… more»

What is most valuable?The most valuable feature is the platform because it allows me to access different devices using different operating systems, such as Microsoft or Mac. In terms of UX design, somebody who has not had experience with ARIS will be able to use it very easily. They will, however, need to have knowledge… more»
How has it helped my organization?It's not a question if my organization should be digital or not. It really must be for several businesses to survive. With ARIS Cloud, we identified our goals, business processes and we turned them into a digital strategy.
What needs improvement?I find that the on-premises version is more stable than the cloud version because I can use it in offline mode. It does not rely on the network or the internet. The length of time for data retention needs to be improved. I was surprised when my license was deactivated and I could not access my data… more»
What other advice do I have?This product offers a smart, digitally-oriented solution that is needed by many large companies in the world. It allows access off-premises, helping companies to migrate to the cloud. It seems that ARIS is committed to addressing the future needs of its customers. I would rate this solution an eight… more»
