Key features

Design your SAP processes

ARIS for SAP Solutions supports both SAP and non-SAP modelers so that business and IT can work on common process models in one central repository (single source of truth). To design your SAP processes, a special SAP wizard guides you through creating consistent SAP processes, which are ready for synchronization with SAP Solution Manager 7.2. ARIS for SAP Solutions supports SAP-specific concepts, such as branches and
global attributes.

This ensures compliance with SAP-specific modeling conventions. To jumpstart modeling SAP processes, you can re-use SAP-related reference content, such as:
  • Software AG’s industry best-practice content package Performance.Ready
  • SAP reference models and the Process Step Library within SAP Solution Manager
  • Re-documentation results showing as-is processes based on real system usage
Align with SAP Solution Manager

Synchronizing ARIS knowledge with SAP Solution Manager ensures the implemented SAP solution is not led by technical requirements but business goals, increasing quality and minimizing risks. The business process structure synchronized between ARIS and SAP Solution Manager includes SAP-specific objects like executables as well as structural elements, such as process steps and the overarching process diagrams. The bidirectional interface also supports the download of relevant organizational and master data into ARIS, exchange documents as well as the creation and download of process diagrams, whether EPC or BPMN 2.0.

Tight integration between ARIS and SAP Solution Manager

The nature of our business demands excellent supply chain management. So, when we migrated to SAP S/4HANA, we didn’t want our processes to suffer. ARIS integrated everything seamlessly and is now the future of operational excellence in our sustainable enterprise.”

- Ronaldo Neves Ribeiro, CIO, Celulose Nipo-Brasileira S.A. (CENIBRA)
Testing to ensure success

ARIS for SAP Solutions enables process-orientated testing and eliminates double work by re-using existing ARIS process knowledge. ARIS for SAP Solutions accelerates and optimizes test design including the creation of test cases, end-to-end test case descriptions, test sequence graphs—and then transferring these test scenarios into the SAP Test Workbench or other standard test management tools for execution.

Success lies in knowledge—train end users with ARIS and SAP Enable Now

As you transform your business or implement new business-critical technologies such as SAP S/4HANA, defining and adapting your business processes is essential—but not enough. You need to ensure that all employees who are involved in changed/transformed processes are aware of their new ways of working. For this to happen successfully, they must be properly trained. ARIS is the leading tool for process design, approval and publication and supports the entire process lifecycle from strategy definition, blueprinting and testing to communication and end-user training. SAP Enable Now is the leading tool for designing, approving and publishing training. It supports rollout and change management procedures as well as the creation and delivery of e-learning and user documentation.

Together, ARIS and SAP Enable Now ensure better training for end users including process and SAP knowledge at once and communication of processes to end users.

Make sure everyone participates in the continuous improvement process

Communicate the solution and its underlying processes to end users and get feedback from your organization to improve the SAP solution and templates while under construction. Users can collaborate on a central platform and contribute their ideas immediately. Published processes are the starting point for optimization or rollout projects. Stakeholders have constant access and can review and adapt processes based on workflow-based change request management processes.
