Sandy Kemsley has posted a series of articles on the sessions she attended at Innovation World, Software AG's user conference.? In this post she talks about ARIS world, the subconference focused on ARIS and its move to the cloud:
He [Geog Simon, SVP of Product Marketing] also briefly mentioned Process Live, which moves this newly re-architected ARIS into the public cloud, and went live yesterday, and discussed their plans to release a mobile ARIS framework, allowing some functionality to be exposed on mobile devices: consuming, collaborating and designing on tablets, and approvals on smartphones as well. [...]
Klueckmann gave us a demo of Process Live and how it provides social process improvement in the cloud. This is hardly a market leader ? cloud-based process discovery/modeling collaboration started with Lombardi Blueprint (now IBM?s Blueworks Live) around 2007 ? but it is definitely significant that a leading BPA player like ARIS is moving into the cloud.
It looks like BPA is moving inexorably to the cloud, but not as quickly as you would think. Like most acquired products/companies, the pace of change may have slowed a bit for ARIS as part of Software AG, as it has for some other acquired product offerings in the space.
For more on Innovation World, Sandy has you covered.
