Simon Phipps joins fully integrated, open source stack company.

Former Chief Open Source Officer at Sun Microsystems, Simon Phipps, has announced that he is joining ForgeRock as chief strategy officer.

ForgeRock define their mission as delivering a fully integrated open source stack of open source middleware products.

“(ForgeRock) are a company building an enterprise integration and identity platform using some superb code that has been set aside in the acquisition of Sun by Oracle,” writes Simon Phipps at his new blog. “Customers worldwide rely on OpenSSO; ForgeRock will be offering them the option to stay with it (renamed OpenAM for trademark reasons) rather than needing to re-architect their systems to use a different product.”
