Deployment is the means by which you move your processes and deployable components into a runtime environment.

A package represents a point in time during the development of a process or component — for example, a point at which you want to test the process or share it with other users.
In addition to processes, the following types of components can be packaged and deployed independently:

The Deploy menu provides access to the following deployment tools:
