Importing XML diagram into Visio RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to import an XML into Visio that I have exported from ARIS application (modeling tool). The goal is to open the XML file in Visio (2007) as an EPC diagram. How is it possible? Are there any adds-ons that need to included in Visio? Appreciate your response. Thank you.

    Cheers,

    Venky

  • The question becomes "Does the Aris tool provide an XML diagram using the proper schema for Visio to diagram from?" XML at it's root is merely a text based script and the ability to understand it is based upon the schema that the information has been saved in. Visio 2007/2010 (and a different one in v2013) have their models published that are necessary for proper interpretation. There is no native tool for importing Aris models.

  • Hi, Visio guys

    there is a native tool out in the market that converts ARIS models and diagrams using XML including the object data(as well as all other models from tools like ProVision, System Architect, etc etc) to Visio 2003, 2007, 2010 and Visio 2013 and SharePoint. Also the other way around is also possible to load your Visio diagrams into the BPM tools. You may check out our blog http://blog.bpm-x.com or website http://www.bpm-x.com for more help on this. Or contact me directly. We made many projects helping customers to migrate to Visio.

    Cheers,

    Heinz.
