Cinthya Sánchez – Universidad de Los Andes

In the nine years she’s been at Universidad de Los Andes, Cinthya Sánchez has been focused on transformations. As the school’s director of information and technology services, she’s reduced her department’s operating budget by 30 percent while better aligning tech with desired academic outreach and outcomes. Yet these were not overnight changes, and her ideas […]

Charles Cooper – Clark Atlanta University

Infotech pros know that life rarely goes as planned—especially when building a resilient network architecture designed to respond to ever-evolving threats. As organizations around the world try to get their arms around the spiraling public health threat of COVID-19, technologists are being asked to keep normal life going, underscoring the importance of maintaining network access […]

Chris Smallen – Lenoir City School District

Some students are using 3D printers to retrofit vehicles for disabled individuals—installing brake and gas pedals on steering wheels, for example, or ensuring that seats are molded in such a way that occupants can safely remain upright. Others students are working with local businesses to develop their online marketing, or they’re helping fellow students when […]

Claudio Zavala – I am Claudius LLC

Belting out Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long” in front of thousands of people was a liberating moment for Claudio Zavala. Being a shy guy—and by his own admission not the greatest singer—it was a bold move for this drummer-educator to take center stage with wild abandon—a moment that he says changed his career path forever. […]

Curtis A. Carver Jr. – University of Alabama at Birmingham

Put yourself in the shoes and lab coat of a renowned scientist intent on curing Parkinson’s disease. So beckons Curtis A. Carver Jr., who’s on a first-name basis with such researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. And while Carver’s profession is directing info-tech, not biochemistry, he wants to be a partner in that […]

Wide-eyed children looked on, as did a couple of teachers, as Chris Cummings went about upgrading a computer laboratory as part of his duties as information technology director at Pineywoods Community Academy in Lufkin, Texas, back in 2009. Formerly a Naval electronic warfare technician who had criss-crossed the globe while carrying out sensitive functions, Cummings […]

Castle Learning

Let’s say a grade school student is given a 30-question practice test and only gets half the questions correct, just 15 of them. In the past, the instructor would have indicated which questions he or she got wrong. The student would get a failing grade and it was off to the next lesson and test. […]

Clark State Community College

People in the IT industry will talk about building networks, building mainframes or building software. Not so much with Dr. Matt Franz, the vice president of information technology at Springfield, Ohio’s Clark State Community College. To Franz, the job of his team is all about collaboration and building relationships in order to help people succeed, […]

Cabarrus County Schools

When it comes to IT, Cabarrus County Schools has three major things going for it—or rather, three people: Dr. Katherine “Kelly” Propst, Michael Stocks and Adam Harkey. The trio has a unique management style, which helped build the most robust school district IT network in the state and keeps 36,000 devices up and running. Propst, […]

Curt Pederson – University of Portland

Curt Pederson has made a career of turning troubled organizations around.  Now at the University of Portland, he’s gone from being berated with insults about the IT department on his first day to being hailed as a miracle worker. His solution is simpler than you might think. Pederson joined the University of Portland as CIO […]

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.
— Katie Patterson, Director of Marketing, Alliant Technologies
