ForgeRock – New RockStar!
Lasse Andresen advised me today that he will be shifting roles from the CEO position with ForgeRock to that of CTO. This is great news as everyone who has worked with Lasse knows he is a “geek” at heart and will get to focus his passion for product innovation and excellence on the ForgeRock Open Identity Stack. The ForgeRock board of directors led by Lasse conducted an extensive search for their new CEO. Their dillegence was rewarded with Mr. Mike Ellis join the team as the new Chief Executive Officer and member of the board.
“ForgeRock is redefining Identity & Access Management with unparalleled innovation…”
Lasse spoke highly of Mike’s solid track record with the likes of SAP, I2, Oracle and Apple. Mike’s past experiences obviously give him the experience to help extend the success that ForgeRock has been experiencing over the past 2 years. “ForgeRock is redfining Identity and Access Management with unparalled innovation and an open source model that is revolutionizing security” said Ellis in the ForgeRock press release. Rock on Mike!
I have to say that we at Nulli are really excited to hear the news that ForgeRock continues to accelerate in the market-place by providing customer-centric products that are reliable, rapidly deployable and readily supportable. Nulli Identity Solution Architects have been using the ForgeRock OpenAMj and OpenDJ products with great success with their clients and are happy to hear that ForgeRock will continue with their focus on customer driven innovation for their products.
I look forward to working with Mike and his team to continue to promote successful, cost-effective and sustainable Identity solutions.
