Banner Document Management (BDM)

About Banner Document Management

The Banner Document Management (BDM) system integrates several enterprise applications for efficient document management. BDM is an integration of ApplicationXtender Web Access product from EMC Corporation, Banner and Banner Workflow products. 

ApplicationXtender Web Access (WX) is an excellent 'stand alone' document management system, but greater value is realized through the merging of WX with Banner and Banner Workflow. For example, a Banner Workflow can be initiated when a document is added, indexed, updated, or deleted. Users may also add or view ApplicationXtender Web Access documents directly from within Banner forms. Banner information can be passed to ApplicationXtender Web Access based on data on the current Banner Form reducing the need to manually enter index values. Document index value changes can initiate changes to Banner data or Banner Workflow as needed.

There are several solutions currently deployed that serve a variety of administrative units at Virginia Tech including the Controller's Office, Graduate School, Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, College of Engineering, Student Academic Advising, Travel and Expense, Student Conduct System and others.
