Dears , 

our company used ARIS IT Arch for some time and they used to publish the models in the Business Publisher , and for contractual issues they replaced the IT Arch with a Business Arch . 

the Business Arch still contains the models the was modeled on the IT but can't show them as everyone knows , my concern here is 

1. Let say we have a model "A" created with IT Architect and already published to Publisher Database. We can access it through ARIS Business Publisher via web access.   2. Now Model "A" is not visible in ARIS Business Architect, due to license issues and incompatibility with ARIS IT Architect.   3. Now if, do a full database publishing using ARIS Business Architect, will it corrupt the existing model "A" in Publisher database.   4. After the whole update, Will we able to still access Model "A" through Publisher as we do in Step-1 prior to publishing .

Before looking at the solution let me ask what is the model type A. As you can understand there are model types which are supported both by ABA and AITA. Although both ABA(ARIS Business Architect) and AITA(ARIS IT Architect) looks same but there are some differences.

For example following models will not be in ABA but will be in ARIS IT Architect IT Architecture Mapping IT Architecture Matrix Process Support Map   Also "KPI Allocation Diagram" is not in ARIS IT Architect but is available in ARIS Business Architect. Do you think the model (A) you are refering is any of these type. I beleive when you publish the model it is based on the content it can see with the particular license.   To test it you can publish the DB with a different name without touching the existing one and see if model A is published (which I doubt will be there). If it does not pose any issue you can update the existing export. (If you do think it mighgt have issue you can use a redirection from existing export to the new one if the new one is fine.)   Thanks Abhijit Das
