Hi Julia,

ARIS Express is a free-of-charge modeling tool for business process analysis and management. Is not a limited demo or trial version. The tool is provided as freeware on ARIS Community webpage:

ARIS Express is a standalone single-user application. It is divided in a home screen and a modeling environment. The home screen is used to create new models or open recently edited ones. The modeling environment is used to edit diagrams.

ARIS Express is a Java based application, which shares some of the features of ARIS Platform products such as ARIS Business Architect and ARIS Business Designer. In contrast to ARIS Platform products, ARIS Express doesn't use a central database for model storage. Instead, each diagram is stored in an ADF file.























Best regards,

Jorge Reyna R.
