The District ITS analysts are responsible for the installation, maintenance, and operation of our main Enterprise level system, the Banner Ellucian (previously known as Sungard) System.  The Computer Operations Group works closely with the Systems and Programming Group to run the nightly production jobs associated with Banner as well as user ad hoc requests.  This Enterprise product consists of Banner modules for the following disciplines:

The Banner System resides on an IBM P570 AIX server with supplemental AIX Web servers that are used for the CLASS-WEB application.  The Web server provides Self Service features within Banner for each of these user groups:  Student, Faculty, Employee, and Finance.

The ITS Systems & Programming staff  serve dual roles in supporting both the new development projects as well as to provide operational support for the existing systems.  Programmer and Administrative Analysts that support the district-wide applications provide the following services to the colleges and district personnel:
