Private and Public Sector Giants Join World’s Leading Corporates as the Latest Members of the Intranet Benchmarking Forum Tuesday 15 July 2008 PDF Print The Intranet Benchmarking Forum (IBF at www.ibforum.com), an exclusive, confidential intranet and portal benchmarking group of leading European, US and global organisations, has announced that EADS, SAP, RSA (formerly Royal & Sun Alliance) and the UK’s DSA (Driving Standards Agency) have joined the forum as corporate members. Formed in 2002, the IBF is the world’s foremost intranet and portal benchmarking group and is acknowledged to have established industry standards for intranet and portal performance. IBF members now include more than 60 of the world’s leading public and private sector bodies such the BBC, BT, HM Revenue and Customs, Nokia, Unilever, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Kellogg’s amongst others. Paul Miller, IBF Chairman and CEO, said: “The mission of the IBF is to drive forward the performance of member intranets and portals through interaction, measurement and best practice and we are delighted to welcome yet more leading international organisations on board as members of the IBF.” EADS, a global leader in the aerospace, defence and related industries sector, joins IBF Global, a division of the Intranet Benchmarking Forum for Global 500 organisations that was established in 2005 to meet the unique issues and challenges that global organisations face in managing and progressing with their global intranet and portal services. The world’s leading provider of business software, SAP, joins IBF Europe - the recently established IBF division whose membership is drawn from the Dow Jones Stoxx 600 - and both RSA and the UK’s DSA join the IBF 100. This division consists of companies in the FTSE100 or equivalent organisations. In total, the IBF has six membership ‘tiers’ which includes, in addition to the above, IBF North America, IBF Asia Pacific and IBF Public. “These four new members,” continued Miller, “can now benefit from services that include independent intranet benchmarking and frequent opportunities for interaction with their peers in member-only meetings and intranet ‘tours’. We also provide members with a programme of exclusive, high-quality research into best practice in intranet management.” ENDS For further information please contact: Fraser Butters at Pervasive PR on +44 (0)7766 566396 or email@example.com Or Paul Miller at the IBF on +44 (0) 20 7435 6606 or +44 (0)7785 255883 or firstname.lastname@example.org at www.ibforum.com This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of Pervasive PR in the following categories: Consumer Technology, Business & Finance, Computing & Telecoms, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
