13. Which one of the following is capable of providing business modeling capabilities within the SAP NetWeaver BPM environment?
a) SAP XI
b) ARIS for SAP NetWeaver
c) SAP Solution Manager
"ARIS for SAP Netweaver " is a product developed by IDS-Scheer and SAP that allows companies to get a complete view of their BPM solution. Business processes can be analyzed from the design phase (business innovation and strategy), to modeling (business model) via configuration, right down to the technical and business monitoring of business processes. ARIS is used here to provide the formal content description of business processes contained in the SAP NetWeaver architecture. The models are physically stored in the SAP XI repository, while the processes themselves are controlled by the workflow system. Most of the methods and tools being developed by SAP and IDS-Scheer revolve around supporting the new Enterprise Service Architecture (ESA).
