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.

Adobe’s intranet is beautiful, as you’d expect

Just weeks after it launched I got to see Adobe’s new intranet. It was gorgeous. Clean lines, simple colours, balanced homepage content.

The Adobe team combined that quality feel with user-centred design for the site navigation and useful features such as:

  1. personalization
  2. social activity streams on the homepage and
  3. megamenus.

All of this they accomplished using Adobe’s own content management system (CMS) of course – Adobe Experience Manager (formerly “Day Software” and “Adobe CQ”).

Join Digital Workplace Live on Tuesday, February 4th to see the site for yourself and hear from:

  • Andrea Brant, Group Manager, Digital Communications
  • Ray Brulotte, Senior Manager Inside Adobe/Intranet.

Andrea, Ray and their team have been on a fascinating intranet journey for the past couple of years. Early on in the process they even presented their site mockups to a DWG Member Meeting to gather honest feedback from a room full of intranet professionals.

Seeing Adobe’s beautiful new intranet is a testament to the power of good intranet practices and running an ongoing intranet programme, rather than just an intranet project.

IBF Live is now Digital Workplace Live
