Esther is the self-service interface to the Banner database and is a combination of applications from Ellucian and some that are custom to Rice. As a part of the Banner 9 upgrade, Ellucian is also developing and releasing several self-service applications that will coexist with Esther (Banner 8 Self Service). The Banner 9 Self Service applications provide extensions to the core Banner Administrative Pages and specific functionality for activities including registration, grade entry, direct deposit, labor redistribution and others. The implementation of the new Banner 9 Self Service applications is the second major phase of the Banner 9 project.
