deployment

Installing, setting up, testing and running. This military term, which means the placement of troops and equipment in the field, is widely used with computers as an alternate to the word "implementation." For example, "XYZ software deployment" is the same as saying "XYZ software implementation." To "deploy" something is to "get it installed and running."
