Banner cloud migration on track

February 18, 2022

The UA Banner Cloud Migration project is currently on pace to meet a fall 2022 go-live date. With this migration to the Amazon cloud, UA will have a renewed capacity and agility to focus on innovations instead of mostly focusing on Banner maintenance. 

One of the most exciting projects to follow the cloud migration is the Student Modernization Initiative. During the coming year, functional and technical teams will be assessing the current digital trail that students navigate to attend and learn at UA. The objective of modernization is to streamline the student experience and mitigate technology bumps along the way. Students appreciate challenging courses rather than a challenge to sign-up for them. An improved student experience is a win for students and a win for student services staff all around.

Now that the migration project’s first phase of testing is complete, expect other testing efforts including swim lane testing to vet specific functionality, and community testing of processes from start to finish.

Thanks for your interest in the Banner Cloud Migration project and look forward to periodic updates. If you have feedback or would like to subscribe to the weekly update, please contact Chris Strube.
