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.

At DWF we like to keep an eye on the Digital Workplace news – here’s a quick roundup from September.

If you only read one thing

Well four things actually, but they’re worth it. And yes, we’re biased about the first one, but it is very good (and free).

Living the flexible working dream

KPMG, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Barclays, Citi, Royal Bank of Scotland and UBS have all been in the news this month for their flexible working practices.

Up and coming

Just how digital are ‘digital natives’, and what do they mean for the future of work?

BYOD (not going away!)

More in September on what iPads and Apps mean for BYOD, plus Dell’s BYOD story.

DW in numbers

  • Yankee Group: 60 percent of companies are allowing consumer devices and software, up from 43 percent in 2011.
  • IDC: despite global economic doldrums, IT spending will still grow by an average of 6% globally.
  • US Office of Personnel Management: one quarter of all eligible federal employees work outside the office at least one day a week
