According to ITIL, can anyone clarify something definitely for me please.
Software distribution, so transmitting new code (packaged or not) to a number of targets, to me is deployment under ITIL.
If, however, the deployment is via a process of promoting code to a back end in the live environment which is then instantly visible (yet not actually distributed to end user clients), is this deemed as deployment under ITIL?
In addition, are both deemed as 'releases' under ITIL?
UKVIKING - thanks for your response. To answer your question:
I see a back end change as a blanket change on one target. There is therefore little debate as to how it is promoted ie. you wouldn’t need to consider how it is rolled out, eg big bang or phased, push or pull. So it feels as if it is more like a back end configuration change rather than client installation activity (which I see as being software deployment).
