19th December, New York

The Digital Workplace Group (DWG), the global leader in benchmarking, interaction and research for intranets has announced its research program for 2012. Topics include intranet strategy and governance and the next generation of intranets.

Elizabeth Marsh, DWG’s Chief Knowledge Officer, said “We’re excited about the 2012 research program.  Over the years IBF has built up a rich library of intranet-related research for its members, and there will be some great additions next year. We’ll be covering diverse subjects from metrics and measurement to video-sharing platforms.”

Marsh continued “What makes the IBF research program so strong is that the key trends and best practices we uncover are always underpinned and illustrated by detailed case studies. Moreover we know the topics we cover are the ones that intranet managers really want to know more about because our members vote on the topics they wish to see.”

From early 2012 IBF will be releasing three full length reports and three briefing papers for members, with two further briefing papers which will be publicly available. The full details are:

Full reports: 

  • Best practice in intranet strategy and governance
  • Metrics and measurement for intranets
  • Managing content

Briefing papers: 

  • Next-generation intranets
  • The real story about intranet search
  • Video on the intranet

Publicly available briefing papers:

  • Collaboration good practice
  • 10 years in intranets

IBF will also be shortly releasing the final two reports from its excellent 2011 Research program. These are a briefing paper on “Social Intranets” which will be publicly available and a report on “Intranet Love Affairs” detailing how being passionate about the intranet can help promote it within the enterprise.
