Software AG’s ARIS 10 adds New Visualization Tools and Modeling for Internet of Things and GDPR

  • New GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) framework aids in preparing for and complying with upcoming General Data Protection Regulation
  • Supports planning and design of Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios
  • Includes ARIS Aware, which brings visual analytics into an enterprise context and enriches content with data from multiple, disparate sources

RESTON, Va.--()--Software AG today announced the availability of ARIS 10 with significant enhancements that help enterprises meet the challenges of the digital economy. New offerings in ARIS 10 include advanced visualization and dashboarding, along with critical tools to prepare organizations to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and to maximize Internet of Things (IoT) investments.

ARIS 10 includes the first release of ARIS Aware, which enables transparency by allowing organizations to take advantage of visual analytics and make the best decisions based on reliable data. ARIS Aware is equipped with ready-to-go templates for common scenarios in business process management, including Center of Excellence, Enterprise Architecture Management, Customer Experience Management and Process Performance Management. These templates can be extended and customized according to individual needs, enabling organizations to combine data from many sources – with context-sensitive and story-telling visualization of KPIs in charts on dashboards.

Wolfram Jost, chief technology officer at Software AG, noted: “With ARIS Aware we are addressing business stakeholders at every level. It is aimed at everybody who needs to gain clear insights – even into the most complex and dynamic business landscapes. The seamless integration within ARIS Connect, our process collaboration platform, enables our customers to get the best insight to build innovative business processes and manage their digital future.”

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Ready
ARIS 10 supports the Software AG GDPR Framework, the first line of defense for GDPR compliance. It includes all the capabilities organizations need to get and stay compliant with this major new regulation. From transparency into processes and data to GDPR impact assessment, the new GDPR Framework provides the necessary tools for insights, analysis and planning. For risk mitigation and governance, the GDPR Framework offers readiness surveys, policies and principles, controls and audits as well as issue and incident tracking.

Internet of Things (IoT) Ready
Also new in ARIS 10 is ARIS for IoT, a new modeling method supporting IoT projects from the design phase to their implementation and management. ARIS for IoT enables IoT architects to enrich business processes with smart objects, sensors and intelligent actuators. Beyond the documentation, ARIS for IoT also enables the analysis of impact on business models and processes.

Jost added: “Everything we do is focused on allowing customers to realize the maximum value of digitalization quickly. This latest ARIS release is a perfect example of bringing many technologies together, allowing both IT and business to collaborate for successful digital transformation.”

With over 2 million users, ARIS is the world's leading tool for the management and analysis of business processes and customer journeys. It sets the base for successful digital transformation, helping companies to manage their digital future. In its latest study on process modeling tools, the Germany-based leading Business Application Research Center BARC awarded ARIS the best ranking—a gold seal. According to the report, “All required criteria of application support for model administration, standard notation, sophistication of the methods, collaboration and model analysis could be fulfilled completely by ARIS.”*
