ARIS Cloud Primary Use Case

BPM & ARIS Methodology Owner at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees

We are doing standard business process management as modeling for projects and some strategic initiatives. It depends on what the requester wants. We have a strong community in our global operations where we do product design and manufacturing. We also have some transformation projects that use Aris, so our digital creation transformation is going from a physical product creation lifecycle to a digital one. These colleagues are using Aris to sketch out and define their new processes. At the beginning of this year, we started using ARIS BPM for the SAP S/4 implementation and business process blueprint to synchronize with SAP Solution Manager.

Our company hopes to further refine our business process management with this SAP S/4 project, which will also be platform-based. By the end of this year or the beginning of the next, we aim to complete the business process blueprint for the S/4 environment. Then we'll hand the blueprint over to our implementation partner, who will implement and configure SAP.  That should be a more straightforward and structured approach than having things flying around in Excel and PowerPoint files. It also helps to have ARIS and SAP Solution Manager driving the global rollout. 

We also did a POC called the "GDPR topic," which covered data and privacy. That was looking very good, but unfortunately, it was deprioritized from the company side. Apart from that, we are not using risk and compliance managers currently. We have a few basic licenses on that, and I think it's very powerful. However, you need to have more buy-in from a wider audience within the company to do risk and compliance management. It has to be process-oriented. You need to use your existing processes for risk and compliance. We were not mature enough to roll this out internally yet.
