The Information Systems department has started a 4 year project, ConnecTech, to replace all mainframe based systems with Intel server based solutions. Systems to be replaced include TechSIS (student system), TechPAY (payroll system), TecHRIS (human resources system), TechFIM (financial system), and TechBUD (budget system). These systems are being replaced with Banner, a tightly integrated Oracle based vendor solution from Sungard Higher Education. Also included in this project are Banner&s Operational Data Store (ODS) and Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) products (data warehouses for reporting), the Luminis Platform (a Portal), the Luminis Content Management System (a management system for web content), and XTender (an imaging solution). For more information on the ConnecTech Project, and a complete list of software included in the project, see
