Est. reading time: 4 mins

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 […]

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 […]

In 2017, the leadership at Tualatin Valley Water District decided it was time to have a dedicated information technology department and someone at the helm of that team.

Ken Murray – Digital Guardian

Data is often the lifeblood of a company, meaning it needs to be protected—sometimes even from employees. For instance, lumber company employees working in forests don’t need access to the cost of equipment repairs and customer invoices, though this data is imperative for leadership and accounting. Meanwhile, data-rich organizations like investments banks rely on data […]

Ryan Lee – KLJ Engineering

Ryan Lee says his IT career has been built on “goal setting with ruthless execution to get there.” However, the affable IT director for KLJ Engineering isn’t the type to trample over people to achieve success. Rather, he’s always identified the skills he needs and found ways to get them. “I always wanted to go […]

Brian Kozlowicz – Juice Press

Est. reading time: 5 mins

While it’s mostly about the product, the customer experience is important. A smoothie, protein bowl or salad is to be savored, not gulped, at Juice Press.

Kenneth Ray Jr. – Sam Houston State University

While Kenneth Ray Jr. may be more at home with a fishing rod or hunting rifle in hand, he’s pretty handy with technology too.  “I’m kind of a different IT person. I’m a rodeo country boy,” he says. “I got into tech for the people. I like to interact with people, and the collaborative nature […]

Paul Locander – Intapp

In the world of IT, innovation happens through creativity and complex problem-solving. That’s why fully realized artificial intelligence remains a long way off, with AI just another tool for companies to use, says Paul Locander. AI, he explains, just can’t think for itself. Locander is the senior director of global IT services and infrastructure at […]

Tom McClain – ITA Group

Tom McClain had an epiphany early in his career. A programmer at the time, he was developing on a mainframe computer and coding in COBOL, which was popular in the 1980s. After a couple years, he realized something was missing. “You know, I really enjoyed technology, but I enjoyed the people side as well,” he […]

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team.
