Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"This solution has improved the way our organization does training.""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. You can do your Archimaze, you can do BPMN. There's lots of stuff you can do in there and if you're a good field person and you cause yourself re-using things or whatever, then it's very nice, it's very easy to use.""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.""The cloud version has the advantage that you can work on it from anywhere.""In terms of UX design, somebody who has not had experience with ARIS will be able to use it very easily.""It has proved that it also works in complex circumstances.""It's very easy to collaborate with. It's very user-friendly"

"Using the Component Diagram, Visual Paradigm helps with design and control, reusing components.""I like the fact that this solution is complete.""The solution is stable. It hasn't crashed, stopped or caused any issues in any way.""The solution is very user-friendly. It's easy to just open it and start working.""The pricing model is attractive.""The initial setup is straightforward.""It is easy-to-use and it helps understand its data modeling structure through the intuitive user interface."

Cons
"I would like to see more support for architectural diagrams.""On an enterprise level, the ability to onboard somebody quickly is cumbersome because it just has too many things in it. It's got something like a hundred or more techniques and things in it.""If you have multiple tiers of approvals into that update of the policy, or the process design itself, it takes ages to prepare those internal flows within the system.""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 very helpful if this solution were more open and could integrate with other solutions like ServiceNow.""Initial setup is rather complex. You have to find a way to isolate the complexity, and find common ground.""The price is quite high. This is one weak point of the solution."

"I would like to see the ability to easily export to groupware, such as Atlassian Confluence.""I would like to see something for visualizing innovation work maps.""The solution is not user-friendly. It uses a lot of memory and CPU. You have to have a good computer to use it.""The solution could be more compatible with other products in the future.""There are some connectivity issues that crop up rarely when used with SQL Server.""The solution can be heavy on resource usage."

More ARIS Cloud Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Over the years I've seen an increase in price, and it makes it difficult for a single person company, like me, to decide whether to extend the license.""You can use Paradigm on a subscription basis and you can choose from different tiers of subscription.""You can move between the tiers from month to month so you are not restricted to one pricing model."
