I am a master student and I am a bit lost with the purpose of each software. I have downloaded Aris Client (Student Edition) for my master thesis. I have installed client with local server and I have Aris Architect and Designer and UML Designer, Optimizer. These software are for BPM that is among others, as far as I have understanded, to make your own model, make some filters and simulations. On the other hand if you want to make process mining and extract a model from data you must download Aris Process Performance Manager (PPM) which can be downloaded separately from download center. The Aris PPM has its own PPM server and for every every client you create you have to start its own server. Is that right? Of course I think you can export a model from Aris Architect and Designer to PPM.

Thanks in advance,
