Each year, over 7 million tourists visit the Dominican Republic. However, most of the planes that leave the Caribbean island are taking these people home. Very few are transporting Dominicans on trips of their own. “It’s shocking that so many people can’t leave their country,” Camilo Convers says. “Anyone can come, but natives can’t leave.” […]

At the start of her career, Kasey Ortoski knew she was helping society as a teacher, spending nearly half a decade imparting knowledge to kindergarteners as well as second and fourth graders.

Alan Schomaker – Loyola University New Orleans

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The National Hurricane Center calls it the “cone of uncertainty”—the projected track of a hurricane for five days measured from its current position. New Orleans—and Loyola University—were in the cone of uncertainty eight times in 2020 as three tropical storms and two hurricanes struck Louisiana. That vulnerability to storms, as well as a 45-year-old IBM […]

Christopher Maynard has been leading IT teams and guiding technological transformations for more than 35 years. But it’s where he’s applied those skills—and the causes behind that work—that matter the most to him. “My career has always been in the nonprofit sector,” he says. “That’s been intentional.

Gary Kraversky – The Kraft Heinz Co.

So, he is asked, is technology what enables The Kraft Heinz Co. to churn out so many processed foods and beverages? Not quite, responds Gary Kraversky, who’d rather credit the people who manage and run the 33 plants in the United States and Canada. But how much more efficiently they oversee production, maintenance and quality […]

Aldona K. Valicenti – Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is a gigabit city. Lots of complexities must be satisfied when laying down a fiber-optic network with its nearly unlimited bandwidth and speed-of-light data transmission. All things considered, the four years-plus that it took to wire Lexington, Kentucky, went about as smoothly as could be expected, says […]

Richard Ly – Plus Company

Est. reading time: 4 mins

In March 2020, companies across the globe were racing to adapt to COVID-19’s rapid spread: shuttering offices, setting up first-time Zoom meetings and struggling to move operations to the cloud. At Toronto-based Vision7 International—which was renamed Plus Company in 2021—they did nothing. In the years prior to the pandemic, the IT department at Vision7 had […]

Dr. Robert W. Smiley – The School District of Janesville

Pens, sheaves of papers, the squeak of chalk across a green board that’s never quite clear of dust—all these are relics of the classroom even before the COVID-19 pandemic led to remote learning. Yet Dr. Robert W. Smiley remembers a time when not a single classroom had internet. In fact, as the technology coordinator for […]

Joseph Patuto – Middlesex Community College

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Credit him for foresight. It was around a quarter-century ago when Joseph R. Patuto began assembling infrastructure for off-campus learning at Middlesex Community College. The need for it was widely doubted and the faculty were often unreceptive to the ideas of this former systems engineer from Digital Equipment Corp. “To a lot of people there […]

Jean Guezmir – St. Catherine University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Jean Guezmir’s tech career was going well and she wasn’t planning on making big changes. At Target, for instance, she drove major improvements to the supply chain and partnered to replace the retailer’s enterprise resource planning platform and software, among other tasks.

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.
