ARIS BPA provides complete suites when it comes to the discovery, design, and analysis phases of implementation. Therefore, the cost it has is just not for modeling. The licensing models are very innovative. You can go with whatever it suits to your organization. The environment starts with basic and moves on to advanced and up to an enterprise-level offering.

Their license model is really difficult to understand, and licenses are quite expensive. However, with the new subscription model, it's fair that you can rent licenses for a specific time and then give them back. From that perspective, it's okay. In general, the licensing model is not clear and the complexity is growing. In the past, I was not able to get information whether new functionalities are available for us. This situation has been communicated and should improve: For me as an administrator it is annoying when people ask me about new features and functionalities, and I tell them what is coming, only to later find out that the feature is not available for us. After some discussions you find out that you need a license. This has happened to me two or three times and it is really embarrassing.

If you want customized reports in place and you cannot create them yourself, you have to get them done externally, so that would be an extra cost.

I would suggest trying at least three vendors and obtain written quotes. The setup cost and pricing depend on the license (Modeler, Viewer, Administrator).

Currently, ARIS is just targeting enterprises of, for example, one-billion-plus companies. For these organizations, the price is fine. This is absolutely not the cheapest solution in the market, but for large companies, the price is fine. If one were targeting companies of perhaps a hundred million and a billion, then the price might be a bit on the high side. For companies below a hundred million, then it's too expensive I would say.

We just bought the licenses for nine members. Each will be responsible for their uploads, their business area models, and the business process analysis. In our area, there are three of us. We are responsible for managing the models to show that they are tied to the standards. For business process management, the time should be reviewed with all of the analytics. Overall, ARIS BPM is a total BPM tool.

In terms of pricing, it would be nice if it were more affordable.

@Evgeny Belenky ​@Kaustubh Dani, ​  Nowadays, most BPMs allow you to import and export BPMN models without much difficulty. especially if you are using the out-of-the-box solution.  The model will remain intact on most occasions. However, the main challenge will be the attributes/ metadata which may not find their way to the new BPM, i.e. the export and import attributes may not be described in the same manner.  Things can get a bit more complex if there is customization from the source of import (e.g. iGrafx).  If you are dealing with a small number of process models, you can test the export and import functionality and see what attributes/ metadata are missing.  For a bigger volume of the process model, it's more economical for the new BPM consultant to prepare a script to import the model and attributes. The export model and task attributes will need to fit into the import ARIS Function Allocation Diagram (FAD).
