Banner 9 Implementation

OVERVIEW

Information Technology Services in partnership with the Functional Module Owners have started transitioning from our current Banner system to Banner 9 for Internet Native Banner (INB). Banner is an Enterprise Resource Program developed specifically for higher education institutions that contains information on students, faculty, staff, alumni and courses. Oracle Corporation will no longer support the current version of Banner. Therefore, Ellucian, the company that owns Banner is requiring all of its clients to upgrade to Banner 9.

The NCAT Core Team will manage the overall implementation process and the UNC System Office will manage the infrastructure and environments. The UNC System Office has mandated that all UNC campuses complete the implementation of INB by December 2018. This implementation supports Preeminence 2020 – Goal (6): Achieve excellence in academic and operational effectiveness and efficiency. This implementation will increase efficiency, enforce and comply with university business processes and improve customer service.


WHAT IS BANNER 9?

The Ellucian vision behind Banner 9 is to allow campuses the flexibility to extend, configure and add technologies as their campus evolve. Banner 9 is a technology strategy to protect the university’s investments and help the university to expand or adopt solutions as priorities shift.
