Banner 7 - Coming Fall Break WeekendOct. 6, 2006
Baylor University's central information system for services to students, faculty, staff, and alumni is the SunGard Banner software. This software includes SunGard's self service web system, which Baylor has implemented as "BearWeb". A major upgrade to version 7 of these systems will occur Fall Break Weekend, Oct. 13 -15.
The BearWeb and Banner systems will be unavailable for all three days during the upgrade, including Friday, Oct. 13 (Fall Break). For a complete list of affected services, click here.
The primary technology improvement with Banner 7 is that it runs in a web browser. This simplifies installation and also allows for easier access from remote locations. The web browsers supported for running Banner 7 are Internet Explorer on Windows and Safari on Macintosh.
