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 Great Tape Debate

15th September, 2009
1:45 pm - 2:45 pm
Event Category:
Attending from Bloor:

The great tape debate – one that has raged for some time and with the advent of SSDs is as prevalent today as it ever was. Should we still be using tape, is it still fit for today’s modern storage demands? All question that the session speakers will be seeking to address. In addition, the question of whether 30 years from now if you turn them off will they still work?! Can they always be relied upon? Perhaps the next 12 months will tell in terms of determining the future of tape – is there still a significant role for tape technologies or has SSD/Flash seen its demise?

5 key take-away from this discussion include:

  1. Why backup is not archive and why you need both
  2. Commercial vs. regulatory and compliance issues
  3. Impact of e-discovery and data destruction requests on archive and back up
  4. Most appropriate technologies available
  5. Why disk and virtual tape libraries are not a viable long term backup and archive solution
