Architecture of Integrated Information Systems

ARIS (Architecture of Integrated Information Systems) is an approach to enterprise modeling. It offers methods for analyzing processes and taking a holistic view of process design, management, work flow, and application processing. The ARIS approach not only provides a generic and well-documented methodological framework but also a powerful business process modeling tool.
ARIS uses a modeling language known as Event-driven Process Chains (EPC), which is an important aspect of the ARIS-model. Event-driven Process Chains is the center of the House of ARIS and connects all other views, as well as describes the dynamics of the business process.
ARIS varies four main perspectives of techniques (see image):
- Organizational view
- Data view
- Control view
- Functional view
It differs from swim lane because it is process oriented and swim lane is function oriented. On the other hand, based on the conceptual description, ARIS can model and structure Business Process Models.
Furthermore, ARIS House has been developed to implement business models in information systems.
As one of the Enterprise Modeling methods,"Architecture of Integrated Information Systems" ARIS provides four different aspects of applications:
- The ARIS concept is the architecture for describing business processes.
- The ARIS concept provides modelling methods, the meta structures of which are comprised in information models.
- The ARIS concept is the foundation for the ARIS Toolset software system for the support of modelling.
- The ARIS house of Business Engineering (HOBE) represents a concept for comprehensive computer-aided Business Process Management.
