Out of the box, Release and Deployment is integrated with Change Management where one or more Request for Changes (RFCs) has to be associated with the Release before the package stage in the work flow is completed. Release approval is routed to the appropriate release manager. Approval is granted via a secure web page from which the release manager can selected and approve RFC(s) to be deployed with this release package. Once approved the release package can be scheduled for deployment. The deployment date is updated on the RFC, thereby providing a closed loop between Change Management and Release and Deployment.

IncidentMonitor™ Release and Deployment is integrated with Service Assets and Configuration Management to ensure that a new version of the CI is associated with the release package. The CI maintains a full audit of all previous versions with associated release and RFC requests.
