Completion of Banner Upgrade

Wed, 15 June 16

Earlier this month, IT Services completed an upgrade of the student system hardware to install new servers and to move to a more up-to-date version of Oracle. Banner, InfoHub and SISWeb are all now running on this new and more resilient infrastructure.

The project was run jointly by UCD Registry and IT Services. Staff from both units were involved in testing and signing off on the new hardware. Thanks to comprehensive testing done prior to the switchover day, the actual downtime involved for students and staff was reduced to a minimum.
