Design a deployment concept
The deployment concept is developed to such an extent that deployment can be prepared in the implementation phase.
The deployment concept determines how deployment is to take place:
Deployment procedure: decide between deployment on a specific date or phased deployment, and plan accordingly
Deployment organization: define deployment support roles
Deployment measures: develop training, prepare documents
The deployment concept is designed based on the concepts of the various modules.
The deployment measures defined in the deployment concept are realized in the implementation phase and executed in the deployment phase.
Based on the deployment concept, the release criteria for the decision to launch operation are defined.
If a product or IT system is procured, the developer uses his experience from similar projects in designing the deployment concept. In this case, the deployment concept is designed after procurement.
When replacing an existing system, the content of the deployment concept is related to the migration concept. They can influence each other.
