Netiquette IQ Technical Term Of The Day - Brownfield Deployment - Do You Know What It Is?

Brownfield Deployment
A brownfield deployment, in information technology, is the installation and configuration of new hardware or software that must coexist with legacy IT systems. A greenfield deployment, in contrast, is the installation and configuration of software or hardware that a company has not used before and is not dependent upon legacy technology. 

The terms brownfield and greenfield come from the building industry, where previously developed land is described as being brownfield and previously undeveloped land is described as being greenfield. In information technology, as with construction, brownfield deployments can be cost-effective because the infrastructure to support the new installation is likely to be already in place. However, brownfield deployments can be complicated by the need to rectify dependencies between the new and current installations.
Good Netiquette to all!
