Product News: Software AG’s ARIS features release

Oct. 4, 2021
Aims to to help automate how users manage digital transformation at both strategic and operational levels.

Software AG has launched several new functions for ARIS, which promises to help companies automate how they manage digital transformation at both strategic and operational levels. The latest process-mining functionalities for ARIS will give customers a more in-depth understanding of how processes are working and what causes them to slow down. At the same time, a number of automation tools that support cultural and language differences will help companies to design and rollout changes globally more quickly, they promise. 

The new Root Cause Miner helps companies to understand their processes and bottlenecks more effectively, a fundamental first step in implementing any transformation initiatives, says Software AG. Combined with the new process export, ARIS users can immediately share and re-use best-in-class processes. As companies aim to connect more effectively across borders, the new variant management will help them make the adaptations needed to ensure cultural and regional relevance. The automated translation further assists with different languages. 

Dr. Stefan Sigg, CPO at Software AG, said, “The pandemic has accelerated a number of initiatives, including remote work and automation. Companies that invest in the right tools to support these changes will see much greater internal and competitive benefits much more quickly. Especially business-continuity planning and efficiency optimization through process mining have proven to be mission critical.  We’re supporting our customers through this transformation process with our ARIS suite.” 

He added, “At a time when rapid but effective change is vital to protect the future of many businesses, what could be more important than ensuring every minute of time spent is done so effectively. That means ensuring not only that processes work, but that we’re finding ways to automate tasks that slow down those end results.”
