Banner

This enterprise resource planning (ERP) system manages the university’s business transactions, including student registration, records and financial aid; finance and budget;  and human resources and payroll.  Access to Banner data for faculty is most easily managed through Banner’s web interface (banweb.pdx.edu), where faculty can find course rosters, submit grades, review payroll information, and more.  Much of the Banner data is streamed nightly to DataMASTER (datamaster.pdx.edu), the university’s data warehouse solution, where faculty will find detailed and summary reports.  Overview training (http://www.pdx.edu/oit/training) on DataMASTER is regularly offered by OIT.
