Banner Revitalization Project

Project Overview

IWU is moving from Banner 8 to Banner 9.  Ellucian, our Enterprise Resource Planning software provider, is moving Banner to the eXtensible Ecosystem Technology Platform to improve the user interface, increase flexibility, and provide additional functionality.  This project will require new infrastructure, application development, integration, module deployment, and testing. This revitalization will impact most campus functional areas (Admissions, Student Records, Financial Aid, HR, Finance, Payroll, etc.), as well as faculty, staff, and students.

Banner 9 will provide a fresh look and updated functionality. It replaces underlying Banner 8 technology that is being phased out, including Oracle Forms, and eliminates the need to run Java (JRE) in the browser. Banner 9 provides single sign-on and will make both Internet Native Banner (INB) and Self-Service Banner (SSB) accessible through any web browser, as well as being mobile and tablet friendly.
