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.

The holy grail of analytic technologies has long been the promise of predicting future outcomes by analyzing data “as things happen”, allowing for rapid business insights and responsiveness. Challenges still remain, however, it an IT world faced with big data, cloud-hosted applications, and enterprise data warehouses.

Philip Howard, Research Director of Data Management for Bloor Research, has published many research papers, articles, and blog posts on the topics of analytics and analytic applications. His recent analysis of IBM Informix software led Philip to conclude: “… for hybrid environments, IBM Informix software has a number of unique capabilities that cannot be matched by either conventional data warehousing vendors or traditional data warehouses.”

In this eSeminar, Philip will discuss various types of analytics and data warehouse environments and the facilities required to support each. There will also be an overview of Informix functionality from Kevin Brown, Informix Database Chief Architect, IBM.
