ARIS — From the Vision to Practical Process Control

Chapter

Summary

The concept of a unified view of information systems that was aligned to the business processes within a company was born at the Institute for Information Systems (IWi) as a natural development of the fundamental notion of a company-wide data model — construction began on ARIS House. At the heart of this view concept, tool-supported modeling of business processes was explored initially in the context of research projects, and later as part of the product development effort in the spin-off company IDS Scheer. The ARIS Toolset by IDS Scheer was developed further so that now it has become the most successful business process modeling tool in the world.
