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.

Like most organizations, you’ve probably invested heavily in your SAP environment. Protecting this investment means ensuring that the underlying infrastructure supporting your landscape is state-of-the-art, including the database and servers that support running SAP applications. Do you know if your technology is up to the task?

Join this webinar to hear directly from Bloor Research’s Philip Howard, who will explore the challenges facing SAP customers today, how they are solving them, and which technology decisions help organizations drive the optimum value from their technology infrastructure. You’ll learn about different types of in-memory databases and discover the truth about the impact of data compression on performance. This leading industry analyst will also evaluate IBM’s latest database software and server offerings (IBM DB2 with BLU Acceleration running on IBM Power System servers) for data warehouse and analytics workloads, including those from SAP.

Topics include:

  • Top factors to consider when formulating a data strategy and choosing the right technology architecture to support it
  • How to ensure scalable system architecture
  • How data organization and memory usage can speed application processing
  • How the integration of DB2 BLU with Power Systems servers provides a strong platform for data warehouses and analytical applications

This session will cover in-depth discussion of database technologies and hardware systems supporting SAP applications. IBM’s SAP Subject Matter Experts will also be available to answer questions during a live Q&A immediately following the presentation.
