Steven Burrell – Northern Arizona University

One college student from the Hopi Indian Reservation walked eight miles one way to get a Wi-Fi signal to do her homework. A Navajo resident could only call 911 when she got in range of a signal. When she alerted an Arizona hospital of the injured person, the ambulance came from the other direction and […]

Liam Quinn – Dell

You’re driving down the highway, off for a weekend getaway with the family. As you sit in the driver’s seat, your semiautonomous SUV is sorting through petabytes of information—scanning traffic miles ahead, gauging the movements of nearby vehicles—to make the optimal decision at every fraction of a second. From the passenger seat, your wife messages […]

James Webb – West Texas A&M University

When four West Texas A&M students were part of Super Bowl LIV in Miami in February 2020, they took Buffalo pride with them to the big game. Only they weren’t in shoulder pads or helmets. Rather, they were there to help the 62,400 fans leverage the newest Wi-Fi technology to make the game come—and stay—alive. […]

Bill Swift – Brierley

Times have been tough in the auto rental market, why with fewer people traveling amid the threat of a pandemic and even fewer needing temporary wheels. On a related note, the hospitality business hasn’t been buzzing either; many hotels and resorts are just now reopening after months of COVID-induced inactivity. Same goes for retailers, so […]

Darrell Riekena – Republic National Distributing Company

Finding ways to operate as a wholesale distributor during a pandemic is something Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) happens to be experienced with, having cut its teeth during the days of Prohibition. Times have changed, and so too have the processes of delivering alcohol nationwide for one of the country’s largest distributors of wine and […]

Chris Barnes – Howard LLP

Though info security is his profession, Chris Barnes has taken on a decidedly non-technological endeavor on behalf of his employer, the Dallas-based accounting and advisory firm Howard LLP. Chief technology officer since late 2018 and a member of the Howard IT staff for 14 years, it’s not as if Barnes didn’t have a lengthy to-do […]

Nitin Vengurlekar – Oracle Public Sector

When we talk about data, there’s a tendency to view it as an end in itself—the great equalizer the world has been waiting for. In reality, data is merely an asset. It’s how we use it—the technologies we tackle, the efficiencies we seek to gain, the solutions we choose to pursue—that tells the real story. […]

Marc Crudgington – Woodforest National Bank

A decade ago, the aim of most cybercriminals was to sow chaos: attempting to crack a high-profile company, dropping a malevolent virus into an operational system—you probably remember the headlines. But as technology evolved so too did the threats to the nation’s banking institutions. So says Marc Crudgington, chief information security officer (CISO) and senior […]

Shane McDaniel – City of Seguin, Texas

It takes a certain amount of absurdity, Shane McDaniel acknowledges, to purposely break technology that’s long worked reasonably well and commit to a complicated and costly upgrade. Especially in the public sector, which is where McDaniel has plied his infotech expertise and leadership the past two years as the first IT director of the south-central […]

Jay T. Reed – Aimbridge

Hotels are always abuzz with activity. It’s almost a Broadway play, with acts including conference and guest reservations, catering and room service, meeting room scheduling, housekeeping, event management, facility maintenance, custodial, security and more. Yet guests don’t care why the elevator works or how the hotel ballroom booked a headliner, just as they might 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.
— Katie Patterson, Director of Marketing, Alliant Technologies
