Blog: Aris BPM Blog

Are you confused by the number and names of all the ARIS Editions?
Maybe you just don’t have all the pieces yet. Let me help you with that and give you a better overview what it’s all about.

First there are the Business Process Analysis editions or short BPA editions. They help you to design your business AS-IS, define TO-BE processes and create WHAT-IF scenarios. You can start your business process management journey with them and grow as you need. Over time you can add more functions, more users, more use cases and finally build a very sophisticated Enterprise Management System.

There are three different BPA editions to meet the different requirements and maturity levels:

ARIS Basic (formerly ARIS Elements), ARIS Advanced and ARIS Enterprise


Second there are the Process Mining editions. These editions help you to measure how your processes are really executed. You can use the results to compare your business reality with the designed TO-BE scenarios. This makes it very easy for you to identify if your operations run like they should and also to find further improvement potential.

ARIS Process Mining is also available in three different editions:
