    ALM - Rocket Aldon Lifecycle Management (LMi or LMe) performs two distinct steps.

    PROMOTE
    Moves objects within the ALM  from one environment to the next within the ALM database without affecting the outside world..
    e.g. from Quality-check to Inventory

    DEPLOY
    Copy objects (Extract) from an environment to Install in a library or path that are not directly managed by the ALM (i.e the outside world that is external to ALM).
    Often these copies are installed on a REMOTE server.
    e.g.Deploy to the Quality-check approval server or the Production server.
     

    Seamless configuration
    Your ALM could be configured to seamlessly trigger Deployment following a successful Promote:

    LMe:

    LMe Client > Setup (Menu Item) > Release Configuration > Expand your Group/Application/Release > select Environments > Right-Click the Environment to Deploy from > Properties > Options (tab) > Select your Deployment Profile

    LMi:
    Main Menu > 13. Work with releases > 2=Change > 1. Change options > Page down (5 times)  > change one or more of the following lines to Y as required
    Install live when promoting to ITG . . N
    Install live when promoting to QUA . . N
    Install live when promoting to PDN . . N
    Deploy when promoting to ITG . . . . . N
    Deploy when promoting to QUA . . . . . N
    Deploy when promoting to PDN . . . . . N
