News: Ellucian Partners with Morphis to Complete Banner® Modernization

Body

BOULDER, Colo. — Nov. 8th, 2016 — Morphis, an application modernization software company based in Portugal with offices in the U.S., U.K., Spain and Brazil, announced today the completion of a significant modernization project with Ellucian, the leading global provider of higher education software and services.

 

The project, which included the migration of over 4,000 pages from Oracle Forms to Java, specifically aimed to transform the user experience, accessibility, and extensibility for Banner® by Ellucian, the world’s leading higher education ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system, which serves 1600 institutions across 40 countries.

 

“Banner® is the most feature-rich, widely adopted Student Information System (SIS) in the world of higher education. Ellucian has transformed the entire system, including administrative functions, self-service functions, integration capability, and cloud deployment options. We trusted Morphis to assist us in the complete transformation of the user experience for administrative users,” said Kari Branjord, senior vice president, strategy and product management, ERP at Ellucian. “While we looked at several, there wasn't another vendor that could execute with the same level of proficiency as Morphis. Their technology was vastly superior to anyone else we considered.”

 

The engagement, which began in October 2014, focused not only on a complete renewal of the user experience, but also strengthened one of Ellucian’s major differentiators in the market—extensibility—allowing their clients to manage their Banner® solution to ensure adherence to their unique academic policies and requirements, without having to modify the underlying source code.

 

“We are the only vendor serving higher education that gives our customer institutions a viable, strong, and compelling path to the cloud while preserving the investments they've made,” said Branjord. “We enable colleges and universities to utilize their resources more effectively by providing a path to meet the unique requirements of the institution without modifying the system, all made possible by adopting the next generation of Banner®.”

 

“Completing a project of this magnitude is great validation that our technology, processes, and people are the best in the industry,” said Luis Andrade, CEO, Morphis Technologies. “The work we did with Ellucian is an example of the way we fulfill our mission; we are proud of the contribution we’ve been able to make to Banner®.”​
