This week Software AG announced its cloud-based platform-as-a-service suite Software AG Live. The suite consists of AgileApps Live, Process Live and Integration Live. Stefan Ried, Principal Analyst at Forrester wrote a great summary about Software AG Live in his blog.

Process Live will be an ARIS based software-as-a-service offering for collaborative process improvement. The product will be available in September 2013. In the meantime, we will continue building the Process Live website adding more and more information, tutorials, the shop, etc. The teaser page just went live.

Process Live

So what will Process Live do for you?

You can subscribe to Process Live in the cloud to design, analyze, improve and distribute processes. To leverage the wisdom of the crowd, social collaboration capabilities are integrated in Process Live. So while you design a process you can ask others for help or feedback. This turns the one-way street of process publishing into an interactive dialog, increasing awareness and acceptance for process improvement initiatives.  

Because Process Live opens process management to all stakeholders, it is easy to use. An extremely user-friendly interface simplifies understanding, describing and improving processes. What if there are not enough users in Process Live to move to the next stage of project? Just get a few more designer and viewer seats to scale Process Live as your project scales. Just invite more and more stakeholders to review, annotate or change your models. Optional workflows will help enforce your BPM guidelines. If your project is done you can pause it and restart if whenever you need it again.

Process Live is based on the ARIS platforms for Business Process Analysis (BPA), Enterprise Architecture (EA)  and Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC). The same technology foundation enables you to take 100% of your content off the cloud to bring it to your on-premise or private cloud installations by keeping the same user experience

Are you interested? If yes, follow our Process Live group. We will continuously update you about the status of ARIS in the cloud.

Interesting concept. What about UML designer capabilities as part of the cloud offering? Process design is one of the first steps in the system development lifecycle, but ultimately processes have to be automated. For this, applications have to be designed, developed, tested, and deployed. Here UML designer compliments the full spectrum of enabling a business project where it requires IT changes / capabilities.

Hello Etienne, UML capabilities will be not part of the cloud offering in the first release. However, there will be a connection from Process Live to ARIS. With this cou can bring processes to execution platforms. If you chose webMethods you can leverage the foll Process Excellence Life-cycle. Other platforms can be fed by BPMN models which are generated from EPC.

Of course you can also model BPMN in Process Live and bring this to other platforms. This standard is accepted by most of the execution platforms.

Hi Joerg, is there a more in-depth specification available for Process Live. For example, some questions that I have: Will Process Live have the exact same functionality as Aris 9? Can it replace my current local Aris Platform? Is it possible to connect the cloud platform to my local SAP Solution Manager?


Thanks, Ivan

Hello Mr. van Dijk,


Process Live will cover most of the capabilities provided by ARIS Connect. Below you find the capability architecture. Process Live was made for ad-hoc process improvement projects. It is not built to run an enterprise-wide program. For such programs ARIS 9 is the perfect tool. 


 You can find the Fact Sheet with more information here.
