Michael Mullis – Ingevity

Turning paper manufacturing by-products into “green” products; transforming sawdust from furniture manufacturing into activated carbon to help reduce car emissions. Ten years ago, such advances would’ve seemed the stuff of science fiction. For Michael Mullis, they’re the reason he comes to work every day. And why, after more than 20 years working for some of […]

Mike Whitaker – i3 Broadband

Nearly 50 years after Corning Glass Works unveiled the first fiber optics, the world’s wireless revolution sure feels like a permanent one, with providers offering ever-faster speeds at relatively stable prices. As with any upheaval, however, there is a downside: by 2020, a full 31 billion devices—everything from phones to cars to refrigerators—will be internet-connected, […]

Mark Barham – City of Williamsburg

Fifteen years ago, a city council meeting in Williamsburg, Virginia, ran on printed agendas and the occasional memo. While this is the way most cities operated at the time, Director of IT Mark Barham is glad many governments have shifted from this paper-driven environment, Williamsburg included. “There was no interactivity between citizens and their government […]

Mobile County Public Schools

At the Las Vegas International Technology Operations Conference in 2015, David Akridge found himself at a presentation on Cisco’s Digital Ceiling, a Power over Ethernet (PoE) network that connects a building’s systems for HVAC, security and lighting. As CIO for Mobile County Public Schools in Alabama, Akridge was immediately hooked on the technology, especially the […]

Mobile, Alabama

Sue Farni has a unique perspective on technology in Mobile, Alabama. It’s the kind of perspective you only get after 39 years on the inside, fighting to make Mobile a forward-thinking tech city. When the City of Mobile launched its first IT department in 1978, Farni was hired as one of its first programmers. She’s […]

Mike Pettit – Ventura County, California

Waiting in line: it’s one of the great banes of twentieth century life. From the DMV to town hall to the hospital lobby—residents pay for services with their time as well as their money. Some local governments are trying to shrink lines by building apps that let residents register dogs, get building permits or learn […]

Mike Mayta – City of Wichita, Kansas

Mike Mayta is a common sense-driven, Harley Davidson-riding kind of guy. He’s also the chief information officer of Wichita, Kansas. In that role, he doesn’t let the shininess of technology or trends distract him. Quite frankly, he says, buzzwords like innovation and digital transformation frustrate him. “IT is not the owner of digital transformation,” Mayta […]

Michelle Murphy — Coachella Valley Unified School District

In the Coachella Valley in Riverside County, California, the Coachella Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) is one of the poorest school districts in the country. Home to nearly 20,000 students, CVUSD covers a 1,250-mile range. Many students in the low-income region still do not have internet access at home, let alone personal devices. In the […]

Mark Finstrom – Highline Public Schools

In Burien, Washington, the Highline Public Schools bring together five cities with 39 schools and some 21,000 students, pre-K through 12th grade. K through 12th grade. The district is delivering classroom instruction a little differently than the standard chalkboard lesson. Once noted as an underperforming district, Highline is reaching new heights with higher test scores […]

Matthew Peterson – Glendale Elementary School District

Funding is a constant challenge for public schools, especially those serving low-income communities. In a time when student and teacher access to technology has never been more crucial, Matthew Peterson, director and chief information officer for Glendale Elementary School District (GESD) in Glendale, Arizona, has taken a value-oriented approach to building up the district’s technology […]

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
