Realising value inside the ARIS tool


We model to discover the secrets of the complex organisations in which we operate. The repository based modelling tools like ARIS provide various notations that can be mixed and matched to corner and tame that complexity.

Our modelling tools contain reporting functionality that is often underutilised, misunderstood  and in some cases even feared. However with some time and effort this functionality can unlock those hidden gems of information we promise ourselves, our colleagues and our customers.

Our models capture the information we need, to analyse and understand our businesses, and this information can be found in the following places:

  • The visual image of the models
  • The descriptive attributes of the models, objects and relationships
  • The relationships between the objects

The information can be extracted to share with your colleagues and customers using the powerful reporting functionality. Compelling reports can be created using the WYSIWYG wizard or the Java based scripting API. Creating rich reports will require some effort; however the benefit of providing the right information in a striking format will far outweigh the time and monetary   costs.

There are a number of factors that will contribute to the quality and usefulness of the information you present in your reports and these include:


The Requirement

  • What is the question that you are trying to answer?
  • What is the best way to provide the answer?
  • What format should the answer be in?

The Modelling Convention

  • Do you have the right mix of model, object, symbol and relationship types to capture the information accurately?

The Modelled Content

  • Has the modelling been done?

The Quality of the Modelled Content

  • Is the modelling complete?
  • Is the modelling aligned with the convention?

Considering the dedication we apply to our modelling efforts, it is very important that we are able to realise the value of these efforts. Value-adding information could be extracted and shared using the superb reporting functionality available in the ARIS tool.

Investing a little time and effort to understand and utilise the first-rate reporting functionality of ARIS, will enable you to anticipate the information requirements of your stakeholders and customers, and delight them with your impressive reporting.

Leonardo wins 2019 Red Hat Hackathon - Customer Experience with OpenSource

      We're thrilled to share with you that Leonardo has won 2019 Red Hat Hackathon 'ReBoot Customer Experience with Open Source'. Early on Friday morning ( 5am AEDT 13th December 2019),  Leonardo awarded first place from a field that included 320 participants from across the globe.  The Hackathon's brief was to reinvent customer experience using Open Source. Providing an outstanding customer experience that customers actually love is especially challenging in more traditional industries like banking, insurance, telecommunication, public sector/government, healthcare, manufacturing, or transportation. These markets offer great opportunities for change and disruption as has been shown by many examples such as Uber disrupting transportation, Twilio disrupting telcos and Stripe or Transferwise disrupting banking.  We want you to be the next disrupter who creates a customer experience that users actually love.  An Open Source solution - ACE  Airline Customer Experience Our project is an application using a Red Hat Process Automation Manager process-as-microservice developed for "ACE Airlines", our fictional client (see video above for the demo). It communicates personalised, event-driven (gate change, delay, etc.) messages to passengers in the language of their choice, using their preferred communications type (SMS, push notification, email).
