It’s easy to assume that for-profit companies can lead the way in enterprise technology, especially intranets. But government agencies are innovating in inspiring ways and leaving many corporations in their dust.

The Dutch government uses Pleio, an open source social networking platform, to create a collaboration platform that extends across departments and out to citizens. And the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency just won an award for its sophisticated use of data to make decisions about its services.

Join IBF Live on November 5th to see and hear the details from both case studies.
