Labdien visapkārt from Riga, Latvia.


With the biggest group of attendees, the ARIS sessions started today in Riga with many exciting presentations.



Look how crowded THIS is - Thanks for joining!!

Day 1

  • Peter Walraven from Royal Friesland Campina and our dear president from the International ARIS user group kicked off the day with some general announcements. Marc Vietor also introduced himself as the general manager of the Business Transformation product line and as one of the “oldest” ARIS fans.

Following Peter & Marc, the ARIS Product Marketing and Management team of Helge Hess took over went into more ARIS deep-dives.



Our speakers Pieter, Marc, Helge and Caspar


  • Helge’s presentation highlighted some of the newest ARIS 10 SR8 features including smart modeling, root cause miner, and RPA, and also gave some “preview” on the upcoming release around Enterprise Management System, Compliance security and variant’s handling.


But his presentation was abruptly interrupted - by myself - why this question: image

Of course I was kidding and  just used the opportunity to introduce what an Enterprise Management System powered by ARIS means and where to find all related useful information. BTW it’s all here: . Don’t miss it!

BTW it seems that our surprise – a wooden thinking game - was very well welcomed by the attendance :-) from Strategy to everyone in fact!
