Today I woke up to delightful news. CIOReview shortlisted ForgeRock as one of the 100 Most Promising Oracle Solution Providers. That’s right, CIO “analyzed over 3500 companies providing solutions for various Oracle products and … short listed companies that are at the forefront of tackling [Oracle] customer challenges.” On the one hand this is incredibly funny given ForgeRock’s long history being the anti-Oracle identity company. On the other hand, there is some serious truth to this award given the number of customers we’ve saved from legacy identity trauma. Can’t help but wonder what our acceptance speech would be like if we continued on in the process and won. Unfortunately, we’ll never know as the next hurdle involves a “nominal sponsorship of $3000.” How very Oracle-ish.
