Software Deployment is one of the most important activity in the software development cycle. Software Deployment is combinations of all activities that make a Software System available for the End Use.

A Software deployment is the process of moving software (broadly defined) through various preproduction stages to final production. Typically, each stage represents a step of higher criticality, such as quality assurance to production.

Deployment Automation Tools help organizations improve the speed and quality of software releases, and address the challenges of manual software deployment.

Therefore, “deployment” should be interpreted as a general process that has to be customized according to specific requirements or characteristics.

Software Deployment Activities:

  • Release
  • Install and activate
  • Deactivate
  • Uninstall
  • Update
  • Built-in update
  • Version tracking
  • Adapt

For Proper Deployment, Project needs a good deployment tool. So below we have compiled publicly available sources from around the world that present views on Deployment Automation Tools.

Components are deployed by component processes, which consist of user-configured steps, many taken from integrations with third-party tools called plug-ins. Multi-component deployments are handled by user-assembled applications.

IBM® UrbanCode Deploy helps you meet the challenge by providing tools that improve deployment speeds while simultaneously improving their reliability. The release automation tools in IBM UrbanCode Deploy provide complete visibility into n-tiered deployments, enabling you to model processes that orchestrate complex deployments across every environment and approval gate. The drag-and-drop design tools decrease design-time by making it easy to visualize the end-to-end deployment process and develop the big picture.
