Aleta Jeffress – Aurora, Colorado

It’s among the most desirable cities anywhere, mile-high Aurora, Colorado, at least for the financially secure and gainfully employed. But the long winters can make it very inhospitable for the homeless. And that’s when the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires a Point-in-Time tally of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons. The count must […]

Andrew Buss – City of Philadelphia

For some, the term “innovation management” may seem like a sign on a Disney Studios office door. But Andrew Buss, Philadelphia’s Deputy Chief Information Officer for Innovation Management, sees his role as trying to change the way municipal government works. “There are a lot of ways to define innovation,” Buss says. “For us, innovation is […]

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 […]

Dan Raiha – Idaho Department of Lands

You might say Dan Raiha uses tech to help people see the forest for the trees. The CIO for the Idaho Department of Lands makes sure Idaho uses data to best manage 2.5 million acres of land. That’s a perfect role for an Idaho native with a degree in mathematics and a deep appreciation for […]

Darnell Smith – Raleigh, N.C.

As a young man, D. Darnell Smith recognized the growing importance of info-tech, deciding to major in computer science rather than accounting at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, and finding opportunities aplenty to ply that skill post-graduation. After long stretches of distinguished performance with E.I. DuPont and Elster Group, Smith opted for the […]

David Bessen – Arapahoe County

For years, residents of Colorado’s Arapahoe County who were eligible for subsidies, including food stamps and shelter assistance, would have to wait a week or more before their benefit application was processed. During the Great Recession, in particular, when need spiked and the old systems were taxed, those lag times could prove the difference between […]

Debbie Acosta and Tony Batalla – City of San Leandro, California

The start of San Leandro, California’s, technology revolution can be pin-pointed almost to the day. In 2011, Dr. Patrick Kennedy, the founder and CEO of OSIsoft, the city’s largest tech company, which specializes in installing its trademarked “PI system” for private companies and public organizations, approached City Hall with an idea to install fiber optics […]

Dr. Jordon Shaw – Franklin, Tennessee

It’s a scenic and choice city about 20 miles south of increasingly urbanized Nashville, where more and more folks are putting down roots—Franklin, Tennessee. Quarterly, the local Building and Neighborhood Services Department can count on a mix of 1,300 residential and commercial requests for some kind of permit. That’s a lot for any municipal department […]

E. Steven Emanuel – Newark, N.J.

In retrospect, it could have been worse for Newark, New Jersey, in the spring of 2017. Sure, the municipal computers were hacked and the Garden State’s most populous city held up for $30,000 in bitcoin by a couple of high-tech miscreants in the Middle East. But that same duo likely extorted even more in untraceable […]

Jerome Smith – North Carolina Department of Revenue

The building may look like a veritable fortress, but the cybersecurity assault is unrelenting—and all eyes are upon the North Carolina Department of Revenue (DOR), monitoring their next move. What happens here in terms of protecting state and federal tax information and financial data could be a first in a nationwide initiative, according to Jerome […]

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.
