Upgrade to Banner 9

Our current version of Banner will be unsupported in December 2018. This means that we must upgrade Banner to a newer version, Banner 9.

Upgrading from Banner 8 to Banner 9 is a major upgrade and involves several steps, including upgrades to other products to support Banner 9, such as Banner Document Management (BDM) and Ellucian Operational Data Store (ODS).

DoIT is planning on the following steps in 2017 to prepare for further upgrades that will be made in 2018.

We are only upgrading the Banner databases in 2017. There is a more modern user interface that is associated with Banner 9 but it will be rolled out at a later date in 2018 after the database upgrades are completed.
