Ahmad Sharif, MD – Fresenius Medical Care

During his days as a surgeon, Dr. Ahmad Sharif’s family couldn’t have been prouder. He’s performing miracles, they thought. Changing lives forever. So when Sharif decided to switch gears and enter health care IT, their reaction was strong. Why, they wondered, would he stop doing something that helped so many? Today, those loved ones may […]

Archana Vemulapalli – Washington DC

Not quite Maryland, not quite Virginia, Washington D.C. may be its own kingdom stationed on the Potomac, but it faces technology challenges similar to those of any other major metropolis, including tight budgets and a lack of access to digital devices for low-income residents. If anything, the challenges may be more pervasive in the nation’s […]

Don Welch – Penn State University

Over a 25-year career in the Army, Colonel Don Welch confronted his share of challenges. Only, back then, the enemy was much better defined. Now, as the chief information security officer for Penn State University, a position that spearheads cybersecurity for 80 IT departments, Welch is confronting a threat of a different kind in the […]

Drew Lane – Shawnee Mission School District

In “Inception”, the 2010 sci-fi thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio, the protagonist is forced to navigate a series of dreams, each more involved than the last. While that might seem like a strange analogy for an IT initiative, Drew Lane insists his school district shares something in common with the special effects blockbuster. “What we’re doing […]

Eugene Vatnik – Rockingham Group Insurance

Shopping for car insurance can often feel like a shell game, where even an impeccable driving record—no accidents, no speeding tickets—doesn’t guarantee competitive rates. Even worse, one minor accident could peg you with a sky-high rate for years, subsequent sterling record be damned. Now imagine getting a lower bill for parking your car eight hours […]

Greg Owen – Western Reserve Group

The idea sounds simple enough: leveraging cutting-edge software to simplify and optimize your company’s operations. For Western Reserve Group (WRG), an Ohio-based insurance provider servicing more than 170,000 customers in the personal, commercial and farm sectors, it’s meant a near-total overhaul of the firm’s internal processes—from claims to customer service. Using software provided by Guidewire, […]

Gregory Chi – Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corporation (MGIC)

Before 1957, private mortgage insurance didn’t exist in the United States. Then a Wisconsin real estate attorney, Max H. Karl, noticed an alarming number of his clients were defaulting on their mortgages and a light bulb went off. He secured funding from friends, families and partners, and in 1957, started the Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corporation […]

Jack Byrd – Fort Wayne Community Schools

Forty years ago, if you needed Jack Byrd to repair something—a flickering overhead projector, a crackly PA system—you’d call his office in the technology department of Fort Wayne Community Schools (FWCS). Rest assured, he’d be there to fix it, before moving on to the next school, the next minor malfunction. It was rewarding work, as […]

Jacques Laflamme – New England Institute of Technology

Standing four stories high and with countless light-inviting windows studding the requisite brick, New England Institute of Technology’s (NEIT) recently completed residence hall isn’t merely the biggest or best student dorm in the school’s history; it’s the first and only. But it’s inside the 123,000-square-foot building where the university—founded in 1940 in East Greenwich, Rhode […]

Jagan Gudur – Regis University

When you think of a typical college classroom, a very particular image comes to mind: the professor standing at the front, with rows of students sitting attentively. For all the ways in which technology has transformed learning, this dynamic remains the default setting at most universities. As chief information officer of Denver’s Regis University, Jagan […]

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.
