What is the Banner Cloud Migration Project?

Administrative Systems completed a collaborative 18-month Banner Cloud Migration project with Ellucian and other representatives from VCU. The project migrated our existing Banner ERP solution, Degree Works, and ODS systems from our University Computer Center (UCC) on the VCU campus into the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud managed by Ellucian. Ellucian is the vendor that created and maintains the Banner software suite and licenses its use to VCU and other colleges and universities worldwide. Our journey to the Ellucian Cloud began in September 2021. We completed the Banner Cloud Migration project on December 9, 2022. Banner, Degree Works, Operational Data Store (ODS), and eServices are now available and accessible in the Ellucian Cloud.
