PeopleSoft was more user-friendly. It also provided the ability to save and bookmark queries. PeopleSoft will allow users to use common names to search for queries. Overall, it seemed much more current than Banner. PeopleSoft provided enrollment data for specific sections which allowed one to spot trends of enrollment in a given class.

We actually selected a different product, but Banner's then-publisher promptly bought it and deprecated it. Banner was our second choice. There are newer products which are web-based and have great features, but the effort to migrate to one of them exceeds the resources we can offer now -- both within IT and in other departments.

We use Blackbaud Fundraiser Performance Management as our supplementary platform, but it feeds into Ellucian Banner on a nightly basis to back up/cross-populate data. BFPM is much more user-friendly - has better search features, can easily run reports and/or pull lists without having to go into the back-end, etc. However, we have found that Ellucian Banner has a better data storage system and is used by other units on campus and within our organization, so that is why we continue to rely on it as the basis for our data management.

Banner Student is better than most of the other products that we have used in the past. It's ease of use tops all the other products that we have purchased in the past. We have never user another product other than Ellucian Banner since I have been there.

PeopleSoft had far more robust reporting tools and a shorter learning curve, but the navigability felt overwhelming. Where Banner provides several menus to click through (which, to be fair, can be frustrating when you just want to get to the application buried behind six menus) PeopleSoft provided expandable options from one giant list that could wind up feeling overwhelming when you're not sure which application or function you need.

Ellucian Banner is definitely a good product as it is able to serve several departments at once. However, newer programs are able to adapt a little easier to the coming generations and be a little more user-friendly. I was able to use Intacct for some time and I definitely found it to be much easier to learn and become proficient at as opposed to Banner.

Ellucian Banner blows SIS Partner Platform and Oracle PeopleSoft out of the water. I worked in another university prior to where I am currently and I was trained on SIS; however, I found it to be quite difficult to navigate and I would often have to logout and log back in because I was unable to get my tabs to move; although, logging in was a process. Before I left the prior institution, we began training on Oracle PeopleSoft; although, it was more user friendly, and advisors could function with less difficulty, I still prefer the use of Ellucian Banner 9. Ellucian Banner 9, is much easier to navigate; therefore, I would struggle to work with anything less than Ellucian Banner 9.
