The Company and Its Goals

Founded by Eric Kavanagh and Robin Bloor, The Bloor Group has the goal of expanding normal analyst activities into broadcasting and publishing. Like other analyst companies, it will pursue a planned research program, write blogs and publish technology articles. However it will also broadcast a series of live radio programs and webinars (to be made available also as podcasts) and it will publish IT books.  The primary activities of The Bloor Group are orchestrated via Inside Analysis – a web site that is both a web magazine, a broadcasting hub and a business/IT social network. This network is currently in the process of being established.


Eric Kavanagh established DM Radio for SourceMedia’s Information Management Magazine as a broadcasting phenomenon within the IT industry in a few short years. It was counter-intuitive to many that Live Radio could regularly attract audiences in their hundreds in the Internet Era, and yet DM Radio does exactly that – and the audience numbers continue to rise. Eric is now also the producer and, in many cases, the host of The Bloor Group’s live broadcasting events, which are an inherent part of its research programs.


The Bloor Group’s reputation rides or falls on the basis of writing and publishing talent. It is evident in the blog postings we produce, in the editorial commentary, in the white papers we write and in the artwork with which we enrich our publications. Our research program is centered around the publishing of two major research books each year. Our goal is to provide the highest quality of research to the widest IT audience in a way that enhances their business decisions and their businesses.

    Dear Eric, we are starting a job in Data Mining in one of our refineries at Colombia. We want to make good use of the information in the real time database using data from operational variables (flows, temperatures, pressures, etc.) to detect correlations between variables of different process plants, making detection and diagnosis of operational faults, developing virtual sensors, among other things. We’ve had trouble finding papers with data mining applications in the world of oil & gas refining, to gauge the economic impact would this work. I would like to ask if you have any information on these topics can we provide? A hug
