ADM Framework High-Level Overview
The Application Deployment Manager (ADM) framework is the recommended support structure for migrating application customizations from a source environment to one or more target environments. To manage and execute the application customizations migration, the ADM framework includes an orchestration environment hosted within the Siebel Management Server. Each environment in the migration process contains ADM-specific entities involved in the migration. For a high-level overview of the ADM entities of the ADM framework, see the following environment-specific topics:
- ADM Source Environment. This topic describes the origin of the application customizations and the initial preparation of these customizations prior to deployment to a new environment. For more information, see About the ADM Source Environment.
- ADM Client Environment. This topic describes the various client interfaces used to control the ADM deployment process. For more information, see About the ADM Client Environments.
- ADM Orchestration Environment. This topic describes the ADM framework components that manage and execute the ADM deployment. For more information, see About the ADM Orchestration Environment.
- ADM Target Environment. This topic describes the target environment that receives the ADM-migrated customizations and the necessary ADM framework components that facilitate the migration on the target environment side. For more information, see About the ADM Target Environment.
See Figure 1 for a view of the ADM environments.
