Banner 9 is also known as Banner XE. “XE” stands for Extensible Ecosystem. The idea that Ellucian is trying to convey with this name, is that Banner 9 is designed with “extensions” in mind. Once we have all of OSU’s custom changes converted over to XE, we should (in theory) never have to re-apply these changes in future Banner migrations. Our Banner “extensions” will carry over automatically.
Banner 9 deployments were completed as of January 1, 2019. We are now working on the implementation of the Banner 9 Self-Service. Ellucian plans to continue releasing new self-service functionality through the first quarter of 2020 and OSU expects to have all Banner 9 Self-Service applications installed by the end of calendar year 2021. OSU will work to implement new Banner 9 Self-Service functionality as it is released to take advantage of the improved user interface and streamlined design. During this transition, some functionality will be available in Self-Service 8 and some functionality will be access via Self-Service 9.
