Dan Granieri – Summit Funding Inc.

You’ve got to allow the salespeople to do what they do best, which isn’t banging their heads on a keyboard because of infotech issues that should be someone else’s concern. So emphasizes Dan Granieri, CIO at Summit Funding Inc., the Sacramento-based mortgage firm that’s active in over 35 states with 80 locations and over 300 […]

Stephen Forrest – Montana Department of Environmental Quality

While some IT specialists put more emphasis on technology, Stephen Forrest is all about information. For the data-driven Montana Department of Environmental Quality, Forrest draws on his social sciences and humanist background to advance the organization. While he appreciates what technology can do, he’s not interested in only the latest and greatest tools. Instead, Forrest […]

Venkat Shatagopam – Metagenics

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 […]

Sara Schmidt – Farmers Insurance Group

When it comes to assembling a cutting-edge cybersecurity team, Sara Schmidt says it’s less about where someone went to school or what they studied, and more about passion and curiosity.

Edward Hilton – Tahoe Truckee Unified School District

When Edward Hilton was asked to oversee the installation of a new computer lab, he had a better idea. Instead of a lab with desktop computers, he proposed a more modern, yet less expensive, idea for Tahoe Truckee Unified School District’s alternative school. Rather than buying computers that had to be shared, he suggested every […]

The view from a dental chair has long remained the same. A yellow-tinted lamp above beams into the recesses of your mouth. A tray of drills, gadgets and sharp-pointed scrapers sits to one side, ready for the hygienist. Now, though, there’s also interactive viewing for the patients. A screen at the foot of the chair […]

Cara Athmann – Cardinal Group

It’s data that hits where you live, says Cara Athmann, and making it accessible is making a difference in how the Cardinal Group manages its housing portfolio across the U.S. As chief technology officer for a company that’s almost doubled in size in the last two years, Athmann has expanded the software and platforms that […]

Rob Reynolds – Congruex

It’s something Rob Reynolds can’t help but notice while applying his infotech expertise to the construction and engineering companies that work for telecoms and cable providers. The builders build what they build best, which is the infrastructure itself. But their IT is typically behind the curve. And that can set back their progress, render them […]

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.
