The Enterprise Directory Services project continues to prototype the conversion to the Banner system, focusing on changes that will allow Banner to write identity changes to the Registry, which will become the primary location for identity management. A key issue for the project is management of ambiguous identities (records that are not clearly a match) or new identity records. This fiscal year, the project team expects to architect a solution for the Banner conversion that will pilot future conversions. The project team has purchased and set up hardware for the development environment. They have created a Registry database and completed an initial load of Banner identities. The team is now converting the first set of Banner load programs ? batch and online ? that will provide templates for future programming changes.
