Mobile County Public Schools

At the Las Vegas International Technology Operations Conference in 2015, David Akridge found himself at a presentation on Cisco’s Digital Ceiling, a Power over Ethernet (PoE) network that connects a building’s systems for HVAC, security and lighting. As CIO for Mobile County Public Schools in Alabama, Akridge was immediately hooked on the technology, especially the […]

Mobile, Alabama

Sue Farni has a unique perspective on technology in Mobile, Alabama. It’s the kind of perspective you only get after 39 years on the inside, fighting to make Mobile a forward-thinking tech city. When the City of Mobile launched its first IT department in 1978, Farni was hired as one of its first programmers. She’s […]

North East ISD

It’s not uncommon for students at North East Independent School District (ISD) to take a virtual field trip to NASA or use video conferencing to read a book with students in another part of Texas. Some study weather online with peers in Michigan or head to the library to experience makerspace activities, such as basic […]

Palace Sports and Entertainment

Professional sports franchises have been unsung pioneers of technology for decades. There is a lot of money at stake and a high volume of data-producing traffic at games—conditions that are ripe for data analytics. Chris Pittenturf is vice president of data and analytics for Palace Sports and Entertainment (PS&E), which owns the Detroit Pistons, and […]

Robert Abate

In 2012, Walmart started building its first ever Data CAFÉ for its Sam’s Club subsidiary. Located inside of the company’s Bentonville, Arkansas, headquarters, the CAFÉ wouldn’t be a place for a cup of java so much as Java, the programming language. Equipped with world-class visualization and analytics software, it was designed to serve as an […]

School District of Philadelphia

The pioneering American educator, Horace Mann, called education “a great equalizer of the conditions of men—the balance wheel of the social machinery.” More than a century later, that still holds true. But today, education has its own equalizer: technology. In order to produce college- and career-ready students, schools must have access to modern, real-world technology. […]

Sparks, Nevada

City managers have come and gone during the past 33 years in Sparks, Nevada, a community of almost 94,000 just east of that gambling mecca of Reno. Same for mayors, city councilors and city managers. And police and fire chiefs and public works directors. But there have been some constants, high among them Steve Davidek, […]

UMass Amherst

When University of Massachusetts (UMass) Amherst IT asked students to help improve their information security messaging, the students had a ready answer. In focus groups, they said: “Stop giving us the same old posters. Stop giving us campaigns that you created. We’re a generation that wants to build with you and you need to make […]

University of Tennessee

College students aren’t especially keen on waking up early. So, when 4,233 University of Tennessee students, faculty and staff gathered in the university’s Neyland Stadium, it was impressive for two reasons. First, those students showed up at 6 a.m. Second, they broke the Guinness World Record for largest letter formed by humans—a University of Tennessee […]

West Covina, California

When the city of West Covina, California, set out to update its technology systems and reimagine its IT division, it took a collaborative approach to getting the most out of a small, yet mighty, crew. In 2015, the city just east of Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley, put forth its first five-year master […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
