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.

This is a talk for the BCS Financial Services Specialist Group as introduction to a seminar on Latency.  “Latency” is the time taken for changes to data in an automated system to reach the “user” (which might be another computer). Technology solutions to managing latency can be seen as part of “good IT governance”, and have to deliver compliance with internal policies for “acceptable latency”.

However, failing to implement good governance in this area isn’t about failing to check a box or meet some industry good practice standard or even about the possibility of annoying some regulators. It’s about having increasingly unhappy customers and perhaps being unable to implement an innovative channel to market that could deliver more customers and higher profits.

There will always be some latency –  every network node a message passes through imposes some delay, on top of that associated with the finite speed of light. 

Part of the function of IT governance is to give the business confidence that its latency issues are managed so as to support its business strategies and vision, at the business level.
