Allan explains the conditions which sparked the formation of ForgeRock, largely thanks to the purchase of Sun Microsystems by Oracle Corporation. Allan speaks in depth about the effects the purchase has had on endangering several open source projects and communities, as well as the effect the purchase has had on enterprises that have adopted and rely on various open source technologies formerly shepherded by Sun Microsystems. Allan also talks about some of the projects which have come out of ForgeRock in response to the potential vacuum that the purchase has made.
