Integrating Deployment Management

Integration with Version Control

Deployment Management provides complete integration with all standard version control systems, including RCS, SCCS, PVCS, ClearCase, CCC/Harvest, and Visual SourceSafe. The Deployment Management outbound API provides all check-in, check-out, and promotion functions during deployment.

File system objects can be deployed to new installations and updated in version control simultaneously. This synchronizes your version control repository, physical installations, and Deployment Management workflows.

Integration with Demand Management

Deployment Management manages the physical deployment of changes to your application environment, but equally important, it also gathers and analyzes issues (requests) related to system stability. To facilitate this request gathering, Deployment Management is integrated with Demand Management.

Like Deployment Management, Demand Management is a workflow-based system that features complete audit trail tracking of requests from submission to closure. The tight integration between Demand Management and Deployment Management allows packages to be automatically generated from requests.

The requests are then automatically updated upon package completion. This closed-loop integration ensures a coherent and consistent view of issue status and removes the need for redundant data across multiple applications.

Integration with Third-Party Applications through Deployment Management Extensions

Deployment Management Extensions are application-specific modules that automate the deployment and post-deployment steps of objects, files, and patches. Extensions are fully integrated with Deployment Management to provide a total solution for managing various enterprise applications. The following extensions are available:

  • Deployment Management Extension for Oracle E-Business Suite

  • Deployment Management Extension for Oracle Technology

  • Deployment Management Extension for SAP Solutions
