Bloor organises regular events for our end-user and vendor communities including:
  • Annual Bloor Symposium
  • Executive programme events such as roundtables, workshops and seminars
  • Executive peer-to-peer networking events
  • Tele-briefings and Webinars
We have found that CIOs and other senior executives are keen to engage in discussion and debate with technology partners. Bloor brings relevant service and technology partners together with our CIO and leadership communities, in ways that maximise the value to both, making them mutually beneficial conversations. Bloor events enable CIOs and other senior executives to come together with technology vendors and service providers in a non-sales environment for the mutual benefit of both the vendor and the business. What sets Bloor apart from other providers are three key points:
  • We have close relationships with many of the most successful CIOs around the world
  • The calibre of our facilitator, often an ex-CIO, will create a frank, honest, and constructive atmosphere where you can gain the insight into what your target audience thinks.
  • Being vendor, media & research agnostic, we are recognised by the CIO community as an independent voice, able to create mutually-beneficial conversations between CIOs and vendors
Bloor is happy to assist you if your organisation is running or participating in an event. For instance, we can provide a speaker on an appropriate topic from among our independent analysts or a facilitator. Where appropriate we can carry out background research on the issues being addressed. For more information, please contact us.

Big data combined with advanced analytics are reshaping the world today and creating a smarter tomorrow. Turn the challenge of volume, variety and velocity of data into an opportunity to find insight in existing and emerging types of data and content, to make your business more agile, and to answer questions that, in the past, were beyond reach. IBM’s platform for big data uses state of the art technologies including patented advanced analytics to open the door to a world of possibilities.

Not all Big Data applications are the same. Some, for example, require an understanding of time, but some don’t. Similarly, some are location-specific but some are not. Some process unstructured data such as text or video, some do not. It should therefore come as no surprise that you can’t take a ‘one size fits all approach’ to big data: what is needed are solutions that fit business needs. In this presentation we will examine different types of big data requirement and the types of solution that are best suited to handling those environments.
