Chris Cate – Valpak Direct Marketing Systems Inc.

The ability of a company to prevail through a crisis, as other companies fail, is a sign of strength and thoughtful determination. Such was the case during and after the Great Recession in the mid-2000s, and it seems to be happening again, as normalcy slowly returns to the business world. “When small businesses took a […]

As the chief technology […]

Dan Granieri – Summit Funding Inc.

You’ve got to allow the salespeople to do what they do best, which isn’t banging their heads on a keyboard because of infotech issues that should be someone else’s concern. So emphasizes Dan Granieri, CIO at Summit Funding Inc., the Sacramento-based mortgage firm that’s active in over 35 states with 80 locations and over 300 […]

Dr. Simeon Ananou – University of Vermont

When Franklin Delano Roosevelt was inaugurated as president in 1933, he moved a legislative agenda through Congress to fight the Great Depression.

Greg Streets – Fresno Economic Opportunities Commission

With a sudden burden placed on nursing homes, food banks, homeless shelters and schools, the COVID-19 pandemic has shined a light on what it means to be essential. But it’s not just frontline employees who’ve been burdened. IT departments, too, have shouldered more responsibility, particularly as employees have transitioned to remote work in massive numbers, […]

Jeffrey Sturman – Memorial Healthcare System

When a COVID-19 patient in noncritical condition leaves a Memorial Healthcare System hospital, they often don’t go home alone. When these patients are discharged from the emergency room, they’re given a pulse oximeter to measure the oxygen in their red blood cells. Worn over the finger, the device displays health data, which patients input into […]

Ken Stanwood – WiLAN

They made a movie about this once—sort of. In the 1966 sci-fi film “Fantastic Voyage,” a team of scientists, led by Stephen Boyd and Raquel Welch, explored a man’s bloodstream in a submarine reduced to microscopic size. While no one at the University of Saskatchewan and its partner company can shrink submarines and a crew […]

Michael Haenelt – Weed Army Community Hospital

When the COVID-19 pandemic made its way to Weed Army Community Hospital at California’s Fort Irwin, one of the largest military training facilities in the U.S., its IT staff spent long nights responding—securing hundreds of laptops for administrative workers and restructuring hospital processes to accommodate telehealth and software upgrades. But if Michael Haenelt is being […]

Phillip Winder – State of Delaware

When the COVID-19 outbreak hit Delaware’s prison system in 2020, prior work updating technology and electronic medical records at the Department of Correction—including a module that would aid in contact tracing—allowed for a swift response to quarantine-positive cases. It was welcomed relief at a time of crisis, says Phillip Winder, chief of information technology at […]


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.
