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.

Commercial Negotiations – In house vs outsourcing

11th March, 2015
9:00 am - 11:30 am
Event Category:
Attending from Bloor:
Bloor Research

Are you getting the most value for money of your in-house IT model … or your outsource model … or your hybrid? Whether you have a well-established outsourced model or have a need to keep the majority of IT service in-house, how do you make sure you get what you want from your vendors?

What are the current commercial approaches a CIO can use to:

  • exploit the new technologies out there
  • take advantage of the the various vendors economies of scale and
  • mitigate risk?

This meeting will bring together those at very different ends of the spectrum and look at new approaches to negotiations and current contract management approaches enable your organisation to see alternative perspectives and so achieve the best inevitable hybrid approach for you.

We will create a 2015 perspective on the pros and cons for a largely in-house vs. largely outsourced approach and enable CIOs to bring new ideas to their organisations for who are holding strong with an in-house model, how their team gather insights and benefits to improve the services they provide internally?
