In this chapter we discussed how to deploy CMS packages. CMS provides a utility called Site Deployment Manager, which allows you to interactively import or export content. This utility also allows you to create profiles to eliminate the somewhat tedious tasks of reconfiguring a reoccurring import/export operation.
In addition to the interactive SDM interface, CMS provides a rich deployment API. This COM-based API allows you to script incremental deployments. Once the scripts have been created, you can schedule those scripts through the Task Scheduler in Windows.
