In preparation for implementing Banner 9 HR/Payroll, a new production size test environment was cloned from PROD. The first step in implementing Application Navigator, Ellucian’s architecture for merging Banner 8 and Banner 9 applications, will be executed on November 14th. This will involve turning off the frameless Banner 8 form and presenting it inside a browser tab.
At present, approximately 46% of the modifications and custom objects will go back to baseline or be deprecated. 14% of the modifications and custom objects are still being reviewed. The development team has requested and gotten agreement in establishing protected time on most Tuesday, Wednesdays, and Thursdays to work on reapplying changes and recreating the custom objects in the new software.
