UI Workstation Recommendations for Administrative Applications

Details on software requirements, supported operating systems, and supported web browsers for administrative applications such as Banner may be found on the Enterprise Applications' System Requirements page.

Workstation recommendations are intended for those who plan to purchase new workstations that will run AITS-supported administrative applications. Administrative application software requires desktop systems with the processing power defined below as a "Minimum Recommended Desktop Configuration." Monitor resolution for Banner 7 form layout is optimized to 1024 X 768 making a larger monitor advantageous for significant use.

Our recommendations are subject to change in light of technology advances, which may bring greater processor speed or more memory/disk space to personal computers, at affordable prices. This information is reviewed quarterly.
