Erik Fritsch – Versova

The latest high-tech augmented reality glasses may be the last thing one would expect to see at egg farms in Iowa and Ohio. But when something needs repair or deeper insight at Versova, employees can now slip on the problem-solving eyewear. As if by magic, a supervisor—located anywhere—can connect and guide the project from afar, […]

Ryan Wooley – Hawken School

Let’s say a class is studying a sophisticated set of math equations, or interpreting a piece of art. At the start of the lesson, each student pulls out a tablet computer, which is touchscreen and stylus-based, allowing students to write on their screens and zoom in or out with multi-touch. Everything on the tablet is […]

Joe Phillips – Kansas City Public Schools

Balloons, deflated balloons and rocks. These are the three types of people in an organization, says Joe Phillips. “Since the direction you’re always trying to go is up, you want people who are balloons,” he says. “You want employees who are aligned with the overall vision and actively working toward the upward push.” Deflated balloons, […]

Rahoul Ghose – ECMC Group

At the nexus of business, technology and education is where Rahoul Ghose said he always wanted to be—and that’s exactly where he has landed. Coming on board as CIO of Minneapolis-based ECMC Group last summer, Ghose assumed responsibility for overall IT strategy and delivery—in addition to helping evolve the culture of the IT department—at the […]

Tonjia Coverdale — Central State University

It was the fall semester of 2018 when Tonjia Coverdale stepped into a freshman English composition class at Central State University in Ohio. The room was bustling with activity, with students taking turns sharing the short stories that they had written with their peers using iMovie on iPads to create a video illustrating their creations. […]

David Wolford – Baugo Community Schools

When coach Marty Moyer’s barn burned to the ground, his wrestling team and a legion of his Indiana neighbors rushed to his aid to rebuild the structure as quickly as possible, working many hours without complaint. In times like these, it’s nice to know people and places like this still exist, says David Wolford, the […]

Jesse Miller – Stratosphere Networks

Say you’re the CIO at a fast-growing company. There are a few hundred employees, earnings solidly in the eight figures, with operations in a handful of states—and more on the way. With a number of your competitors falling victim to data breaches, it’s time to redouble your cybersecurity efforts. But with so many options available […]

Doug Rutledge – EyeCare Partners

Doug Rutledge didn’t have to undertake much digital transformation when he started as CIO for EyeCare Partners in April 2018 at its headquarters in the St. Louis suburb of Ballwin, Missouri. For it was a farsighted company long before he came aboard, and needed to be, its business model being rapidly expanding while partnering with […]

Brendan Post – Earlham College

Brendan Post is ensuring that learning will not be old school at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. “We are stepping outside what was done to see how today’s student engages,” says Post, the school’s chief information officer and IT director. From classrooms to dorms and the dining hall, few areas will remain untouched by high […]

Bernard Piccione – Ingenuity Advisory Partners Inc.

Imagine this: Roughly 1,000 nurses converging for a multi-day training event. To make it happen, there are the logistics of flights and other transportation, as well as hotel rooms, meals, arranging speakers, programming and workshops. For the employer, it’s a whole lot of money and effort. For the worker, it takes a physical toll, not […]

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.
