I think "deployment" has its own meaning in information
technology/software development. You can find information e.g. at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_deployment. The word is very
common in the "IT-language", so probably that is why it is not explained
further. In German it is one of the many words in the area that are very
often not really translated but used as such, probably it is used in the
same way in Spanish...
