Phase eight of the Software Development LifeCycle is the Deployment and Implementation Phase. We have now written technical documents for the Initiation, Concept Development, Planning, Requirements, Design, Development and Testing phases. Next, we will write documents to show how the system is installed and made operational in a live production environment.
