Change Management process and Technology Maintenance Window information

NOTE:  Illinois Tech is upgrading from Banner version 8 to Banner version 9. This is a major undertaking, involving multiple applications, and it will happen in phases over time. In each phase, services will be impacted. Because of the time needed for this initiative, extended Maintenance Windows will sometimes be necessary to perform the steps required to deploy Banner version 9.  If you would like to learn more about the Banner Version 9 Project, please click here.
