With ARIS, we have far more flexibility than before, so we can better support the needs of the various business areas across the enterprise.

Klaus Weber, Senior Director Infineon
Infineon Technologies AG is a world leader in semiconductor solutions. In the 2018 fiscal year the Company reported sales of around €7.6 billion with about 40,100 employees worldwide.

Business need

In 2004, Infineon analyzed the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act. The first full management assessment was carried out in fiscal 2005 and the SOX requirements were met after a considerable amount of work.

It triggered the decision to deploy an enterprise-wide IT application. A process-based approach was chosen to leverage the synergies between process management and compliance management.
