A great article about the relationship between BIM and IWMS that questions IFC and other assumptions we make about BIM.

Just got a link to an article on Javaknight about BIM and IWMS (Integrated Workplace Management Systems). I have personally no idea about IWMS so far, but the article is very interesting and critical on matters about interoperability an IFC (Industry Foundation Classes).
IFCs are regarded as the Holy Grail that is suposed to allow users to inter-operate despite using different BIM platforms. The article poises some doubts about the role of IFCs, putting them at the level of what DXF is to the DWG format. Definitely a very interesting read.
