Edward Chuang – Logix Federal Credit Union

It’s as if the universe planted a big yellow “JUMP!” sign right in front of you, the prospective homeowner: a hip two-bedroom bungalow a three-minute walk from town. You can just feel the applications pouring in. By 2019, if you happen to have Logix Federal Credit Union’s mobile app, a quick photo could bring you […]

Kristin Lowland Lanzi – Achaogen

Plenty of pharmaceuticals are put to market with the promise of improving people’s lives. Rarer still, are the medicines good enough to actually save lives. With plazomicin, the San Francisco-based Achaogen is chasing the latter. A next-generation antibacterial, designed to treat a host of serious drug-resistant infections (a huge issue in hospitals), the drug proved […]

Jeremy Davis – Capistrano Unified School District

A chemistry teacher doesn’t begin teaching safe chemistry at the end of the semester. That lesson starts before the first Bunsen burner is placed under a test tube. The same principle applies for introducing children to the internet, states Jeremy Davis, who has served the 49,000-student Capistrano Unified School District in Orange County, California, since […]

Michele Buschman – American Pacific Mortgage

As a mortgage originator, beginning the workday can feel like an all-sides onslaught of correspondence and paperwork. Open Outlook to check your email. Now pull up the calendar. Oh, and don’t forget to download those new guidelines from Fannie Mae’s website. Minimize. Maximize. Repeat until you develop carpal tunnel syndrome. Now imagine working for American […]

Jagan Gudur – Regis University

When you think of a typical college classroom, a very particular image comes to mind: the professor standing at the front, with rows of students sitting attentively. For all the ways in which technology has transformed learning, this dynamic remains the default setting at most universities. As chief information officer of Denver’s Regis University, Jagan […]

Rolland Kornblau – El Rancho Unified School District

Most adults were educated from grade school through college in traditional classrooms, which almost always included rows of desks and a large blackboard stretching across one wall. Although this is the way lessons and lectures have been given for two centuries, give or take, many recent studies suggest it is the wrong approach. According to […]

Debbie Acosta and Tony Batalla – City of San Leandro, California

The start of San Leandro, California’s, technology revolution can be pin-pointed almost to the day. In 2011, Dr. Patrick Kennedy, the founder and CEO of OSIsoft, the city’s largest tech company, which specializes in installing its trademarked “PI system” for private companies and public organizations, approached City Hall with an idea to install fiber optics […]

Dan Borges – Southwestern College

There’s a myth about technology in Silicon Valley—and by extension, California—which suggests that any technology or trend sprung from the former must necessarily fan into the latter. Dan Borges knows better. Having plied the IT trade in everything from defense to pharmaceuticals (he counts Lockheed Martin among his resume bullet points), Borges has long recognized […]

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. Started by Bloomberg Philanthropy in April 2015, WWC helps mid-sized cities understand how data can improve services, […]

City of Oakland

Government agencies are notorious for moving at a glacial pace, yet even when the pace is much faster—say, in one of America’s tech hubs, the Bay Area—there’s still room for improvement. And it’s not just a matter of speed, explains City of Oakland CIO Andrew “Pete” Peterson. Services must be available to everyone in all […]

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
