With the announcement of Ellucian Banner XE, the Banner customer base is faced with the decision to stay with Ellucian and eventually upgrade to Banner XE or replace with a new ERP and/or SIS such as Workday.  Both a Banner XE upgrade and a transition to Workday will require change and each option will incur change in different ways.

The report is designed specifically to help Ellucian Banner institutions compare and contrast an upgrade to Ellucian XE versus a migration to Workday ERP Cloud with the most current data, research and analysis.
