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.

Comparing online collaboration at financial institutions
Most large organizations today are wrestling with collaboration: how do you properly implement online social tools that truly help employees and the company? Financial institutions face increased challenges due to special rules and regulations targeted at protecting personal and financial information.
During IBF Live on January 7th see how two very different global financial institutions, Barclays and AXA, are using online collaboration tools for employees. Both Barclays and AXA work in over 50 countries and employee around 150,000 employees globally. Based in the UK, Barclays has a history spanning over 300 years and offers a broad range of financial services. AXA, based in France, started out as an insurance company and now has many services in savings and asset management.
SharePoint 2010 + Newsgator vs. IBM Connections
The AXA intranet team recently launched IBM Connections and is exploring best practices in enterprise social media adoption and metrics.
The Barclays intranet is built on SharePoint 2010 with the NewsGator social media platform. The team has gained traction over the past year engaging employees via user-generated content, ideation, badging and mobile, while also working on a data warehouse for analysing the social events and gaining insight via sentiment analysis.
This episode of IBF Live offers a unique opportunity to compare two different and very popular enterprise social platforms side-by-side.One-time guest pass
