Migrating legacy enterprise infrastructures to the cloud is highly desirable due to greater versatility, lower management costs, as well as improved scalability. However, the large scale of these systems makes transforming the current architecture a long and difficult process that involves weeks or even months of manual collection and analysis of data. BlueSight serves to expedite and simplify this process by collecting the data through an agentless process and analyzing the collected data to determine which and how applications should migrate.
