Yes, the picture looks familiar for those who have already come to visited us. In fact, we haven’t changed address, we’ve just moved the ForgeRock Grenoble Engineering Center to a new office space, in the same building, doubling in size, building our lab in the facilities.
With now 23 employees based in the Grenoble area, the expansion was long due. We now have more space for everyone, more meeting rooms, a creative area with huge white board, and a dedicated kitchen area.
Last Thursday, Mike Ellis, ForgeRock CEO, and Jonathan Scudder, co-founder were in the office for the opening party.
We also had visitors from the Bristol engineering team, the Vancouver WA engineering team and the Czech republic ProfiQ team, truly showing our diversity and international presence.
I hope that we will continue to grow as we’ve been doing in these first 7 years… We have an amazing team and a great culture. Let’s keep rocking on!

Last Sunday, ForgeRock team participated in the Ekiden, a marathon organized in Grenoble, in favor of various charities, including the “Papillons de Charcot” (literally Charcot’s butterflies, to help people with Charcot’s disease).
The race is a marathon, but run as a relay of 6 persons respectively running 5km, 10km, 5km, 10km, 5km and 7.195km).
The ForgeRock team did great and finished in 3 h 28 min and 6 secs. Congrats to the team and we’re looking forward to next year edition, see if we can register 2 teams.
I’m back after a late summer break spent across France.
Now it’s back to business full speed, to finish and deliver new major releases of our products by the end of the year.
I will also be traveling and attending a few events. The closer will be “Les Assises de la Sécurité” in Monaco, at the end of the month. If you’re attending the event, drop me a note. I’ll be happy to meet with you and discuss our products and solutions.
Two weeks ago, I was in the mist of Half Moon Bay, attending the ForgeRock Identity Summit. This is the 3rd conference in the US and each year, the event becomes bigger, nicer and better. The location itself was amazing, sitting on the edge of the Pacific ocean, rocked (or lulled?) by the sounds of the waves.
On the day before the main conference, we hosted a ForgeRock User Group, very well attended and had the opportunity to exchange with our customers, future customers and users about our product directions, and their experiences deploying the products. I’d like to thank the attendees for the great discussions, the sharing, and the excellent feedbacks that are definitely going to translate into product features and enhancements.
Je serai présent avec notre équipe au SIdO, l’événement 100% dédié à l’Internet des Objets qui aura lieu à Lyon les 7 et 8 Avril 2015.
