Deploy the next generation of Banner software.  This project includes working with administrative units to review and verify the need for local customizations previously implemented in Banner 8, returning to baseline solutions where possible.

Status Summary: 

All Banner 9 modules have been implemented.  We have submitted several change requests to Ellucian to improve Banner 9 forms and fix defects.  We continue to deploy and test Ellucian releases through the end of the year to resolve as many bug fixes and enhancements as possible.  The ACT is currently developing the final 7 Banner General forms.  All of these have limited use cases.  Banner 8 will be decommissioned on January 1, 2019.

Approximately 50% of the modifications and custom objects have gone back to baseline or been deprecated. 

Recently Completed: 

Completed installation of latest Banner releases and patches over Thanksgiving weekend.
Completed 3 General forms. 
Completed the Banner 8 decommission plan. 
Communications to all banner users concerning the use of Banner 9 and the decommissioning of Banner 8.
Installed a string of releases and patches to Dev2 and PPRD.

What's Next: 

December 22 installation of latest releases and patches to Prod (final release scheduled for Prod prior to decommissioning of Banner 8).
Decommission Banner 8 on Jan. 1, 2019.
