IDS Scheer, a leading provider of solutions for business process excellence, announced that a range of organizations are using its flagship ARIS Platform to power their enterprise architecture (EA) initiatives. The ARIS Platform provides support for the entire business process lifecycle and delivers the capability to design more efficient, standards-based enterprise architectures. Nova Chemicals and Zurich Insurance have implemented their EA frameworks with IDS Scheer's ARIS Platform as the base tool.
The ARIS Platform provides close interlacing of business processes with the whole IT landscape, data and organization, reveals weak points in IT systems and the effects on the business processes, and identifies cost drivers and savings potential. It also offers portfolio analyses by the central ARIS process repository. In addition, it drives design, support and controlling of low-cost IT architectures. In terms of standards and frameworks, ARIS Platform supports Zachman, DoDAF, FEAF, TEAF, TOGAF, ITIL and more.
NOVA Chemicals is a $5 billion commodity chemical manufacturer that produces commodity plastics and chemicals with a focus on two product chains: ethylene and polyethylene - styrene and styrenic polymers. Its plastics are used to manufacture products that are essential to everyday life - including food packaging, construction insulation and shrink-wrap for industrial customers. The manufacturer selected IDS Scheer's ARIS Platform which offers support for multiple standard EA frameworks, configuration to any customized architecture framework and a comprehensive metadata repository.
