BANNER 8.6 Upgrade
During semester 2 of 2014 BANNER will be undergoing 2 major upgrades. The first phase, which is now complete, was an upgrade to the software managing the server ‘WebLogic Server Basic Edition’. This has carried over the same functionality as previously existed on BANNER without any changes, but with updates to some of the background software.
Phase 1 was implemented in Production over the weekend of 16 and 17 August.
Phase 2 will update BANNER from the current 8.3 version to 8.6. This will introduce some new tables and structure which will allow us to move on next year to the new version of ‘BANNER XE’ which brings with it many new exciting enhancements and improvements.
We plan to have Phase 2 completed by the end of November this year. We will pass on more detailed information on when access to BANNER will be affected by the Phase 2 cutover period when it becomes available to us.
The Student Systems will be attending Student Administration Conference at Brisbane on 11 and 12 September. There will be no service during these two days. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. If your request is urgent please contact Patrick Player, Assistant Academic Registrar (Systems).
Webinars will be running as usual throughout September. Please visit Banner and Student Systems Training for session details and the Student Systems Training Calendar for dates and times. All module content/training guides will be made available to attendees after each session via the Student Systems Training SharePoint site.
