ForgeRock Identity Live Berlin

Last week, the IdentityLive tour stopped in Berlin for the first European event of 2019 (the second one will be in London on October 8th-9th).

It was a good opportunity to meet and discuss with our European customers (or the European teams of our global customers). For me, the main topic of discussion was Kubernetes and running Directory Services in Docker/K8S. It was also something that I’ve discussed a little bit during the Nashville Identity Live, but not as much as I did in Berlin. I also did a talk on that subject at the Identity Live Cloud Workshop (the second day of the event is focusing on the technical aspects of our products and solutions). I’ve started to write another article to detail my talk. I hope to publish it here in the next few days. Meanwhile, you can find all the photos from Identity Live Berlin on my Flickr page as usual.

Note that Identity Live Berlin took place at the “Classic Remise” which is a showroom for old and sports cars. An unusual place for a conference, but a good opportunity to admire some pretty old cars and try to take a different kind of photos.

ForgeRock Identity Live Nashville, TN

Two weeks ago debuted the ForgeRock Identity Live series of events. This year the USA based event moved to Nashville TN.

This was my first visit to the city of Country Music and honky-tonks. It was fun listening to the live music everywhere, trying (and buying) boots, visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame, although we didn’t really have much time for leisure.

The Identity Live event itself was really good and very well attended. The engagement of our Customers and Partners was great and we’ve had a myriad of discussions, feedbacks and questions about our products, our roadmap and our progress on our move to the Cloud.

The videos of the sessions are already available on ForgeRock website. And you can also see the photos that I took during the event.

Next is Berlin Identity Live, on June 6-7. Registration is still open! I’m looking forward to seeing you in Berlin!

Happy New Year 2019!

Wow, 2018 is already over, and a new year has started. It’s a usual time to look back at what we’ve achieved, make a clean slate (zero inbox), take a deep breath and jump ahead to the new projects, goals or adventures, both personal and professional. Including posting more on this blog ! 🙂

I’m wishing every day of the new year to be filled with love, success, happiness and prosperity for you.
Happy New Year!
Bonne Année !
Godt Nytt í…r !
¡ Feliz año nuevo !
あけましておめでとうございます。

ForgeRock IdentityLive APAC

Last month, ForgeRock hosted two IdentityLive events in the Asia-Pacific region.

One in Sydney on August 7 and 8

Sydney Australia

And the second one in Singapore the week after.

This was my first participation to the events in this region (somehow I managed to convince my family to move our vacation earlier so I could attend), and it was great meeting in person with many customers and prospects I’ve interacted with over the phone, as well as meeting the ForgeRock colleagues I hadn’t seen for a while. As usual, the conversations around our products and the customers solutions were very rich and open, and I came back with great inputs and confirmations for our roadmaps.

You can find my photos of the events in the following Flickr albums:

The next IdentityLive events will take place in London on October 30-31, and Paris on November 13-14. I hope to see you there!

ForgeRock Identity Live Austin

The season for the ForgeRock Identity Live events has opened earlier in May with the first of a series of 6 worldwide events in 2018, the Identity Live Austin.

LP0_3097With the largest audience since we’ve started these events, this was an absolutely great event, with as usual, passionate and in depth discussions with customers and partners.

You can find highlights, session videos and selected decks on the event website.

And here is my summary of the 2 days conference in pictures.

The next event will take place in Europe, in Berlin on June 12-13. It is still time to register, and you can look at the whole agenda of the summits to find one closer to your home. I’m looking forward to meet you there.
