  • So, I’ve talked about the flexibility of the software… and there’s a reason that Aras solutions are significantly easier to customize than conventional legacy systems. CLICK 1 It’s because Aras uses a unique and proven innovation that is fundamentally different than other systems. Aras combines a Web services service-oriented architecture with a Model-based approach. Together the Aras technology delivers Unmatched Flexibility while achieving Unparalleled Upgradeability Solution forms, workflows, lifecycles, and even the data schema can be changed in real-time with a graphical solution studio editor. The customization and creation of solutions is done at a business level with flow charts and forms not complex programming code. This is important because it means solution customization can be done by regular people like power uses and business systems analysts instead of expensive consultants and programmers. Aras has always had these capabilities, and now we’ve made it available as Microsoft Enterprise Open Source…
  • So, once you’ve downloaded the software all you need is a standard Intel box with Windows Server and SQL Server running .NET. Its really a light weight application. For evaluations or development work you can run it on a laptop with XP and use SQL Server Express which is the free version. There’s a link to the SQL Express download on our site. It installs in about 20-30 minutes and to access the system all you need is an IE browser. It’s the same interface for users, developers, and admins; the roles-based security permission settings determine what people can see and do. Now, I said it’s light weight, but because of Innovator’s modern Internet SOA it partitions well for enterprise scalability. CLICK 1 You can run the database on one server and the web server on another, and simply continue to add boxes as needed to handle large user counts. CLICK 2 There are also a number of Configuration Options including the ability to run Aras in conjunction with other popular Microsoft products like SharePoint and the Office system products like the business analytics in Performance Point or Scorecard Manager. Because Innovator is all XML / SOAP Web services integrations are straightforward. Aras has Open APIs that can be integrated with other major systems like your company’s ERP suite, PDM system, or CRM, as well as custom legacy systems or integration suites. There are hooks for common identity management applications such as Active Directory or other LDAP systems so you can have ‘single sign-on’ capabilities. And, there’s even the ability to tie Innovator in with your company’s standard email system.

    21. 21. aras.comConfidential © 2007 Aras Corporation Anatomy of a Solution  All solutions are created from a collection of managed items that define various application features, behavior and functionality. In Innovator, these templates are known as “Item Types”.  In Object Oriented programming terms, the Item Type is similar to the class definition, and the “items” metaphor is used to refer to the class instances (objects) that are created from it.  Some of Innovator’s out-of-the-box Item Types include:  actions, forms, properties, reports, methods, workflow and lifecycle maps, relationships, permissions, user and identity management, etc.  You can also create your own user-defined item types:  examples: ECN, ECR, BOM, Part, Widget, Tool, etc.
    22. 22. aras.comConfidential © 2007 Aras Corporation The Item Abstraction  Everything in Aras Innovator is an Item:  Which is an instance of an ItemType • Which itself is an Item o [ Aras Innovator is a 100% self describing system ]  Items may have relationships to other Items:  Items have structure (configurations)  Relationships are defined by RelationshipTypes • Which has three properties to define the RelationshipType rule: – source (parent) Item – related (child) Item – relationship (described-by) Item  RelationshipTypes are also ItemTypes Can be sources of other relationships 4
