ITS launching enterprise resource planning assessment, Banner review 

The MINES@150 strategic plan is still moving forward, and the need for an effective, powerful and flexible enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is more important than ever. With this in mind, ITS is launching a review of Mines’ Ellucian Banner platform and competing tools. As Kirsten Volpi said in an email to campus partners, she has commissioned CIO Monique Sendze to lead this effort because she believes more than ever before, “we must align our core technology infrastructure with who we are and where we are heading.”

Mines has engaged BerryDunn—an independent consulting firm experienced in higher education information technology—to conduct an objective ERP feasibility assessment. As BerryDunn begins their work, they will distribute a survey to Banner users and schedule work sessions with campus constituents. Updates on their work will be provided in upcoming Today at Mines emails, as well as on the ITS website.
