Chuck Meyer – Grass Valley

While technology companies typically reach for the stars, not many can claim 1977 as the year they almost blew one up—on purpose. Chief Technology Officer Chuck Meyer, whose eponymous company, Grass Valley, is named for the California city in which it is based, recalls seeing the company’s model 1680 production switcher control panel front and […]

Chad Ritchie – Solarity Credit Union

If you’ve ever filled out an online feedback or comment form—whether your opinion happens to be positive or negative—the thought has undoubtedly crossed your mind: “Why am I even bothering?

Christian Aboujaoude – Keck Medicine of USC

Digital transformation was underway when Christian Aboujaoude assumed the responsibilities of chief technology officer at Keck Medicine of USC.

City of Corona, California

Last August, Chris McMasters, CIO of Corona, California, sat down to find an unexpected, but pleasant, email waiting for him: Representatives from What Works Cities (WWC) wanted to visit Corona to consider the city for their national initiative.

Watching all of […]

City of Aurora, Colorado

When a business or developer considers building in Aurora, Colorado, the city often relies on its robust IT department to help seal the deal.

City of Garden Grove

When Garden Grove, California, installed its first personal computers in 1994, the fifth largest city in Orange County was behind the times. Most municipalities had made that transition in the late ‘80s. But IT Director Charles Kalil says there were advantages to being a late adopter. For starters, it gave Garden Grove the opportunity to […]

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.
