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.

The Digital Workplace Group is pleased to announce that IBF Global Director Andy Jankowski will be speaking at the prestigious KMWorld 2011 Conference being held in Washington DC from 1st November to 3rd November. Jankowski’s presentation is entitled “Evaluating Intranets for Future Directions”.
KMWorld 2011, now in its 15th year, is a leading conference covering themes diverse as knowledge management, collaborative Web 2.0 technologies and intranets. It is being held at the Washington Marriot Wardman Park in Washington DC.
Andy Jankowski said, “I’m excited about speaking at KMWorld 2011. It’s one of the biggest events in the intranet and enterprise collaboration calendar, and there’s a phenomenal line-up of speakers including Jeremiah Owyang.”
Jankowski continued “My session is designed to get intranet professionals thinking about the future direction of their intranets. DWG’s Digital Workplace Maturity Model is an excellent way to illustrate which stage of evolution a firm’s intranet is at, and how it can move forward to build a user experience which includes a wider set of essential collaboration and social tools. My speech is going to be very practical. Anybody who attends will have something that they can take back to use in their own organization.”
KMWorld 2011 is the second speaking engagement in a very busy fall for Jankowski. Having already appeared at the recent Social Intranet Summit in Vancouver, he has further presentations at the Ragan Communications 2011 Intranet Summit, the Conference Board Council on Internal Communications and Public Service Engage 2011.
