1.1 Determine if a client system and a server system meet the requirements for installation

1.2 Determine an installation method

1.3 Review the security requirements

1.4 Prepare a software-installation plan

2. Perform the software installation

2.1 Create an install package for an application

2.2 Test the install package in a test environment

2.3 Deploy the install package to a production environment

3. Plan and test an application removal

3.1 Create an uninstall package for removal of installed components

3.2 Test the uninstall package in a test environment

4. Perform the database installation

4.1 Deploy a database from the development environment to the production environment

4.2 Specify the connection string to the database

5. Manage an application configuration

5.1 Configure the application to use parameters that are valid for the production environment

5.2 Use the configuration files to modify the deployment variables

5.3 Configure the security features in an application

Assessment requirements

Modification History

Release 

Comments 

Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 1.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of the ability to:

  • prepare plans for software installation taking into account data, resource and security requirements
  • create application install and uninstall packages, and then test and troubleshoot any issues
  • install a database to a production environment
  • configure variables, parameters and security features for a production environment.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • describe the basic principles of database management systems
  • outline the software development life cycle (SDLC)
  • explain the coding used to create deployment applications
  • explain the information and communications technology (ICT) hardware, software, security protocols and standards and organisational policies relevant to deployment of applications.

Assessment Conditions

Gather evidence to demonstrate consistent performance in conditions that are safe and replicate the workplace. Noise levels, production flow, interruptions and time variances must be typical of those experienced in the programming and software development industry, and include access to:

  • sufficient privileges to install packages on client and server system
  • database management system software
  • specific tools and licences, depending on the particular platform.

Assessors must satisfy NVR/AQTF assessor requirements.
