Aras makes available Aras Innovator 12. The release features usability updates to the Aras web interface enabling efficiency for users across the extended enterprise. Platform enhancements also include low-code capabilities for application modeling, graph visualization and supply chain security.

Aras Innovator 12 introduces a client experience to help people get their work done faster, according to the company. The simplified interface makes Aras even easier to learn and use while a navigation redesign helps users find the information they need in fewer steps. Additional productivity improvements span all aspects of the suite.

In Version 12, Aras continues to extend the platform’s modeling engine by adding new low-code capabilities called the Content Modeling Framework and Technical Documents Framework. These enable the creation of data models composed of content at the paragraph, section and field level. The related items are collectively treated as a single entity for the creation and management of documents with impact analysis of changes.

Version 12 enhances secure web access to include new permission capabilities for need-to-know scenarios and geopolitical boundary related access restrictions. In addition, connected instance sync has been added to the platform for inside and outside the firewall deployments with supplier data from projects, programs or workspaces. The capabilities cover a wide range of supplier collaboration use cases while enabling companies to dynamically set up and reconfigure highly specific supply chain access.

Version 12 also adds graph view capabilities for users to visualize and navigate data structures throughout all applications on the platform—subject to user permissions—using a node-edge graph. Users can quickly see multiple views of data relationships in the Digital Thread for visual analysis of information across the lifecycle.

“Aras Innovator 12 is all about making complicated things easier—supplier access, application modeling, Digital Thread traceability, business-critical application usability—so we can all be more productive,” says John Sperling, senior vice president of Product Management at Aras. “Whether you’re trying to hire and retain tech-savvy workers or changing suppliers as trade policies fluctuate, Aras has unique features to support your global operations.”

Aras Innovator 12 is available immediately. Aras subscribers are guaranteed compatibility and receive upgrades with upgrade services on all applications including customizations.
