I have a question about the new product Mashzone Nextgen Business Analytics. Is it possible to integrate this with ARIS 9.7 and is there a tutorial about this new Mashzone?


Kind regards,


Hendrik Ohler

Dear Hendrik,

Currently, an integration between ARIS and MashZone NextGen is planned for next year's ARIS major release for April 2017.

Please note that MashZone NextGen Business Analytics has a dedicated forum on Software AG's TECHcommunity:

We continue discussing here only about MashZone Legacy, version 9.9 or earlier. It's successor, MashZone NextGen 9.10, is meant to be discussed on the TECHcommunity. I will have this MashZone's page updated soon.

in the meantime we relaesed MashZone NextGen 9.12 and we implemented a migration path between MashZone Legacy ( former MashZone) and MashZone NextGen. In the Empower Portal you can find more information about that., see

Hi Bernd,

Thanks, I have seen that guide, and still have some questions.  We are currently. using old Mashzone to pull queries from ARIS 9.8.3 and present the results in the datafeed.

  • I see conversion (migration) options for data feeds, but not dashboards.  Do dashboards have to be manually re-created?  Or do I just “import the mzp” of an exported dashboard, without any migration?
  • I see there is support for an “ARIS Table” data source, but in the migration guide, it says:
    • The following MashZone legacy operators and features are currently not supported in Business Analytics data feeds. 

      • Source locations
        ARIS Design Server
        Google Docs
        Uploaded files 
    • Does that mean I cannot use ARIS data feeds?  I don’t understand why it says “ARIS Design Server” is not supported, but “ARIS Table” is supported:We specifically use Queries in ARIS, and connect Mashzone to the output of those queries.  This is what I need to do, is that supported?

* Server install question - Can Mashzone NextGen be installed “on top of” the old Mashzone installation, or should it get its own clean installation folder?

* If it gets its own clean installation folder, can MZ NextGen and MZ “oldgen” run on the same server?

* Can MZ NextGen run on the same server as ARIS?
