Heart of systems development process
Heart of Systems Development Process

  • Traditional ‘Waterfall’ Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

    • Planning

    • Analysis

    • Design

    • Implementation

    • Maintenance

  • Missing Link

    • Evaluation of New System

      From “Modern Systems Analysis and Design”

      by Hoffer, George, Valacich, 4th edition

Banner implementation
Banner Implementation

  • Feasibility Study – most likely

  • Planning – guided by SCT

  • Analysis/Design –

    • Existing system analyzed

    • Future system designed

  • Implementation –

    • Phase I – conversion

    • Phase II – make it work

    • Phase III – testing and training

  • Maintenance – where are my reports???

In a perfect world
In A Perfect World

  • All existing Reports will be converted prior to implementation of Banner

  • All users will be trained on the Banner system

  • All users will have reviewed their ‘new’ Banner reports and approved of them

  • Everyone is happy with a smile on their face

Tarleton State University

In the real world
In the REAL World

  • Most of the reports are unknown and are not converted

  • Majority of new Banner users did not have time to attend the training sessions

  • Many of the users will not realize that ‘THEIR’ reports were affected

  • Happy and Smile are five letter words only…

Missing link situation
‘Missing Link’ Situation

  • Evaluation of New System

    • Meet with the Primary Users in their areas

    • Discuss the Positives as well as the Negatives

    • Determine their immediate needs

    • Help them to think ‘Outside of the Box’

    • Assess their Training Needs

    • Establish ‘Priority’ within their ‘needs’

    • Provide Feedback on progress to meeting their needs

Solution to the missing link
Solution to the Missing Link

  • Determine viable options for Report Replacement tools

    • Research using the Internet

    • Contact other TAIR members

    • Contact peers at other Institutions

    • Attend Workshops and Seminars

    • Visit vendor booths at conferences

    • Contact your SCT representative

Perfect meets real
Perfect Meets Real

  • Planning and Preparation

    • are prime components to successful implementation of any new system, including Banner

  • Selecting Business Intelligence tools

    • assist in the transition to a new system

    • is time and money well spent

  • Including all areas in the transition phase

    • instills confidence and ownership of the final product

Understand thePurposes of Reports

  • Historical Reports

    • Such as Fact Books serve archival roles

  • Support Planning and Decision Making

    • Provide information to decision makers

  • Public Relations

    • FAQS or Stats for public information

  • Information Dissemination

No report left behind
No Report Left Behind

  • Analyze ‘existing’ reports

    • Identify ‘Producer’ of the reports

    • Determine ‘Users’ of the reports

    • Document ‘Criteria/Specs’ for the reports

    • Establish ‘Scheduling Timelines’ for the reports

    • Create ‘Priority Rating’ for the reports

    • Refine

    • Redirect

    • Clarify

    • Revise

      to accommodate emerging demands or changing circumstances

      From “Effective Reporting” by Trudy H. Bers with Jeffrey A. Seybert, 1999
