The Ultimate Guide to Aras Update
“Cause nothing can go wrong when you have a plan”
Aras update is a very well guided process for subscribers. Nevertheless there is one thing that cannot be covered by official documentation: It´s real life experience!
This upcoming blog series will show you how to plan and execute an Aras update in around 347 simple steps! Do not worry, most of them are just about testing, as this is the main challenge for a PLM administrator.
We will provide you practical, non-marketing based hands-on tips and a template that will help you to create your own individual test plan!
The articles series is intended as additional information to the guided Aras update process. But also free users without subscription may benefit from this guide.

This blog series is not meant to be static. Especially the test part will be continuously changed and improved on the basis of user experience and user feedback.
Did you ever post the all the steps from the blog “update in around 347 simple steps”?
thanks for asking! Yes, I am still working on the guide! (and it will contain a lot of steps 🙂 )
Most of the guide is already in a draft state. However, I decided to postpone the guide to integrate the experience from my recent Aras update.
Aras has changed the process and not everything from my first drafts still will work fine in the new concept. I currently still wrap up the pitfalls I faced during the last update and how to avoid them in the future.
Unfortunately, I’m not the fastest blogger. Since English is not my main language, it takes me about five times longer than writing in my native language. But I am happy to see that there is interest in this article series. That motivates me to speed up the process!
