Status of migrations
We’re pleased to report that two more sets of business processes — in the Business Affairs and Payroll offices — launched in Banner 9 on August 2. Here is an update on those launches and on other work underway:
- Business Affairs
- In the Finance office, the majority of internal business processes — that is, those used only by that office — transitioned to Banner 9 on August 2. A few issues were reported after the go-live, which Information Services has now resolved.
- The remaining development on business processes internal to the Finance office will resume in September.
- All of the business processes internal to the Payroll office transitioned to Banner 9 on August 2. Similar to the Business Affairs transition noted above, the few issues reported after the go-live have been resolved by Information Services.
- Office of the Registrar
- Development on the first set of Student business processes has taken longer than anticipated due to the complexity of the work. User acceptance testing is underway for a subset of the business processes.
- The launch originally planned for the second week of August moved to August 23 allowing for extended user acceptance testing for the collection of work.
- We’re in the process of assessing the Schedule (class scheduling) process for Banner 9 and the feasibility of moving to production early September. That will be the very first “external” business process — that is, one used broadly across campus — to go live in Banner 9.
Ellucian form conversions underway
- Initial Ellucian engagement
- The limited-scope engagement with Ellucian to convert a selection of forms from Banner 8 to Banner 9 has progressed into the quality assurance and code delivery phase of this work. User acceptance testing is planned for the last week of August, and if testing completes successfully, we will be able to confirm the timeline for completing this engagement.
- Planned future Ellucian engagement
- Planning is underway to align the internal development effort in Information Services with the proposed rollout schedule for the Ellucian conversion work later this fall.
