It’s easy to picture the stereotypical IT department. It’s filled with computers, servers and tech tools, and the only sounds are the clacking of keyboards and sporadic digitized beeps. It’s a quiet environment where staff are a little nerdy, but supposed geniuses. Oh, and they’re all men. Gina Ehrlich’s department at AHEAD does not look […]

Imagine you work at a supply chain management company, helping global manufacturers respond to volatility in the markets.

If you ask Dawn Bridges to think outside of the box, understand she’s already there—in front of the box, on top of it, behind it. If KTGY’s director of technology could get her hands on a set of virtual reality goggles, she’d even wander back inside, she jokes. Owing to her experience in IT, engineering […]

With automation often in the news, both as a productive and destructive force, William (“Buck”) Buckingham has doggedly worked for three decades to streamline companies in the print and publishing industry. “It was such a manual process before, which made it difficult for people to wrap their minds around it,” Buckingham says. “I saw a […]

He might be one of the more quotable tech bosses. “Cybersecurity is like alcohol,” Steve Levinson says. “You need it in good times and bad.” Vice president and chief information security officer for Winnipeg-headquartered Online Business Systems, he strives to ensure the company’s vast corporate clientele won’t be driven to drink over data breaches or […]

They made a movie about this once—sort of. In the 1966 sci-fi film “Fantastic Voyage,” a team of scientists, led by Stephen Boyd and Raquel Welch, explored a man’s bloodstream in a submarine reduced to microscopic size. While no one at the University of Saskatchewan and its partner company can shrink submarines and a crew […]

He wishes the big boost that his employer has enjoyed for the past year wasn’t so attributable to a pandemic being necessary to raise overdue health concerns. “Prior to COVID, not too many people seemed that worried about their health,” says Venkat Shatagopam. “They weren’t using as many vitamins and supplements. Now everyone sees the […]


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.
