You are about to use BlueDolphin. This page gives a brief summary of BlueDolphin, how it works and refers you to additional user documentation. In this way you get off to a flying start with BlueDolphin.
What is BlueDolphin
ValueBlue developed BlueDolphin to get a grip on the application and ICT landscape. BlueDolphin makes it easy to get an insight in the connections between business process, applications and their underlying infrastructure. So that you can visualize the chains and information flows.
You can apply effective improvements and identify cost reduction opportunities with these new insights. For example, overlapping application functions are quickly made visible and its impact analyzes are rapidly made.
BlueDolphin is highly configurable and is easy to configure for one or more application areas. Your BlueDolphin admin is able to implement these configurations. You can think of the following configurations:
- Configuration management
- Rationalization and consolidation tracks
- Application Portfolio Management
- Process support
