Banner by Ellucian ERP is in transition from a current-state, legacy Oracle Forms-based technology stack to a future-state, Java-based technology stack. The transition is considerable and institutions that are using and maintaining Banner by Ellucian require a large learning shift to supporting technology, skills and identity management landscapes. Please join a panel of higher education professionals from a number of institutions to discuss their challenges and progress in implementing Banner XE.
