It is designed to provide an individual with the appropriate access to enterprise systems based on the individual’s affiliation with the University (i.e. Faculty, Staff, Student or Alumni).
Banner® ERP system is the authoritative source for the majority of Identity information for identities associated with a college or a university. Banner® also implements critical business processes for managing information related to employees, students, recruits and some vendors. The role of Banner® in a Banner®-IAM integration is to be an authoritative source for data.
