  • When Banner was first implemented, it was miraculous to have everyone in the same system. We were all looking at the same thing and speaking the same language, which saves a lot of time and energy. However, one of our primary offices recently found a product that better suited them and are no longer using it. I worry that Ellucian isn't staying competitive and that, if more offices leave, we'll be back to speaking different languages, writing interfaces to try to get our various programs to communicate.
  • When students are oriented to Self-Service Banner, most find it to be helpful for referencing information pertaining to their academic experience. The information it lists is basic, but it's nice that it is available nearly 24/7. I think that is increasingly becoming an expectation, rather than a perk, but students who engage in this way generally seem to do better academically. They retain and graduate, which are metrics we want to support!
  • While I don't think we've quite used it to its fullest potential, reporting on outstanding requirements in CAPP has helped departments be more intentional with their offerings. If we know what students need to take to graduate, then we can make sure to offer those sections. This can become a money-saver when it comes to faculty salaries, because then part-timers and adjuncts are only hired when they are truly needed.

  • It allowed the university to retire a mainframe, which was quite expensive.
  • It added web access to student data, which was a big win, and since has also added a mobile app.
  • It processes many things in real time, which the mainframe had to run as a nightly batch.

  • Definitely, both positive and negatively.
  • Positive would be the ease at which the student can access data and also the developers that use the data.
  • Negative - Upgrade frequency and poor documentation.
  • Overall, Banner Student is a good product and I would recommend it to another school.

  • Banner was already in place when I arrived at my current school, but the centrality of Banner and its constituent applications contained therein has been far more integrated into the common business practices of the various disparate offices and their charges on campus. A hodgepodge of software that incongruously fits together by force of will or lack of other options seemed to rule the day for most other schools I've worked at. It was often someone's job to migrate data manually from one area to another just to get everything to work.
  • I think Banner's limitations extend from its ubiquity, utility, and centrality. At this point, moving from Banner to an entirely different Student Information System would be like tearing out all of the water pipes in your house. We're an Ellucian school, and by hook or by crook, they're going to be a part of the student, faculty, and staff experience for some time.
  • from what I know about the previous system used, it was an outdated system, based on very old software. Updating to Banner over 10 years ago meant that the school was able to accomplish far more with far less. This is not unique to Banner, but it is something that Banner is responsible for in our instance.

  • We are a non-profit educational organization, so the financial impact is not as quantifiable, as the number of students who graduate from the multiple graduate-level programs offered. Banner has helped to process grades, and manage finances, for over 500 students each year from the largest Evangelical seminary in the United States.
