Thanks for visiting the Digital Workplace Group (DWG) website. You'll see this post may refer to the "Intranet Benchmarking Forum (IBF)," the "Digital Workplace Forum (DWF)" or "IBF Live." But that doesn't match our website name!

In a nutshell, we merged IBF and DWF into one service and changed our name to "Digital Workplace Group." The new name represents the broader set of services we've grown to offer, beyond an original focus on just intranets. We also changed the name of our monthly webinar from "IBF Live" to "Digital Workplace Live."

Although we've relabelled things, we're proud of our decade+ history and have left this page intact. Enjoy your time on our site and please contact us with any questions or comments.

This invitation-only community for organisations outside of membership to ask questions, share knowledge and learn about IBF.

In conjunction with the May 3rd broadcast of IBF Live, the Digital Workplace Yammer group has been renamed IBF Live. The name change is part of a wider effort to synch up DWG’s various external channels including its monthly visual radio broadcast and Youtube.

Originally launched in July 2010, this invitation-only Yammer group has grown into a vibrant online community for some 300 intranet and digital workplace professionals who share knowledge and ask questions whilst learning more about the Digital Workplace Group.

Recent conversations have explored SharePoint 2010 implementations, delivering online training to geographically dispersed intranet teams, social media security and strategy along with insights into DWG membership.

Among the participating organisations in the IBF Live Yammer Group are Coca-Cola, Intuit, Deloitte, Pearson and Amnesty International, Nationwide, Capital One, Monster, AARP, Sprint, Tesco and Nestle.
