 What is Banner?

Banner is the Enterprise Resource Package used by FGCU to gather and process data for Students, Student Financial Services, Faculty, Human Resources, Finance, and to interface with many other University, State, and Federal information systems. The functional areas listed above are the “Data Custodians” for the University business applications.
Banner is a product of DATATEL + SunGard Higher Education and is a leading Student Information System used by over 2,300 colleges and universities in over 40 countries. Additional information about Banner can be found on their website at www.sungardhe.com.

 What is GULFLINE?

GULFLINE is FGCU’s name for the Banner Self-Service applications. Students can use the Self-Service applications to perform functions such as applying to the university, registering and paying for classes, viewing their class schedules, requesting transcripts, and applying for graduation. Faculty can view their classes, print rosters, and enter grades. Employees can register for benefits, view their pay-stubs, enter their timesheets, and see their leave balances. Parents can use GULFLINE to add money onto a student’s Eagle ID Card for purchases at many of the vendors, the bookstore, and printers and copiers on campus.

 What reporting resources are available for Banner?

Banner provides built-in reports for each of the specific functional areas.. Custom reports and processes are developed by the Applications Group of Buisness Technology  Services for Banner and GULFLINE. Data Custodians for each of the functional areas provide access to these reports and submit requests to Buisness Technology  Services for the development of custom reports and processes.
FGCU has implemented the Cognos web-based reporting tool that pulls data from the Banner Operational Data Store (ODS), which is a transactional reporting database,  refreshed with data from the Banner production system daily. Cognos reports are developed by Cognos Report Authors within the functional areas and by Business Technology Services Applications Group staff. Cognos reports are published and made available to Consumers, which are Faculty and Staff who have been given access to view and run the reports.
