There are conferences and there are Conferences. The Conferences are the ones that you remember, because they happened in unusual places, because they’ve had a different atmosphere, you’ve met lots of friendly and bright persons. They are the ones you leave with the satisfaction of having learned something, having received value, and you’re looking forward to come back next year.
The IRM Summit is one of these Conferences. The next European IRM Summit is taking place in November, 3 – 5, near Dublin, Ireland, at the Powerscourt Estate pictured here. It’s a 2 days event where you can learn and discuss about the Identity Relationship Management space, standards, platforms, solutions…There will be many presentations, demos, trainings, plenty of time for discussions and meetings, a free half day Kantara Initiative workshop around “Trusted IDentity Exchange (TIDX)”, and some fun. I can already hear the fiddle, the pipes, the harp and smell the Guinness ! And I hope the weather will let us enjoy the wonderful garden.
Check out the agenda and the list of speakers, and don’t wait until last minute to register. While there are hundreds of rooms available, they are still counted and limited. Last year’s summit was sold out !
I’m looking forward to see you in beautiful Ireland !

Mark, who run ForgeRock documentation team, describes the improvements done on the Introduction section of the OpenIG docs that we’re making based on received feedback since the release of OpenIG 3.0.
Four years ago, exactly I was free from all obligations with my previous employer and started to work for ForgeRock.
My first goal was to setup the French subsidiary and start thinking of building a team to take on development of what we named a coming later OpenDJ.
4 years later, I look at where we are with ForgeRock and I feel amazed and really proud of what we’ve built. ForgeRock is now well established global business with several hundreds of customers across the globe, and plenty of opportunities for growth. The company has grown to more than 200 employees worldwide and still expanding. The ForgeRock Grenoble Engineering Center has moved to new offices end of May and counts 13, soon 14 employees and we’re still hiring.
Thanks to the ForgeRock founders for the opportunity and let’s keep rocking !!!
Since I’ve started working at ForgeRock, I’ve had hard times to explain to my non-technical relatives and friends, what we were building. But those days are over.
Thanks to our Marketing department, I can now refer them to our “ForgeRock Story” video :
Great article about ForgeRock and its CTO and founder, that tells a lot about the culture of the company: Forgerock’s startup journey.
Two weeks ago, the first IRM Summit took place in Phoenix AZ, at the amazing Arizona Biltmore. It was a great pleasure to meet with many friends and acquaintances, analysts and experts in the Identity space. Lots of conversations, ideas et food for thoughts !
If you haven’t been able to attend, or missed a session or two, you can watch the videos from the event : https://www.youtube.com/user/ForgeRock/videos
And as usual, I’ve made all the photos that I’ve taken during the event available online, including the ForgeRock Partner event that happened the day earlier.
