Est. reading time: 5 mins

The 11 buildings on the Atlanta Technical College’s campus offer students and faculty over half a million square feet in which to study, work or simply relax. In addition to the 307,000-square-foot Academic Complex building, the campus has green spaces with park benches to enjoy a warm, breezy Georgia afternoon. Yet, these spaces aren’t at […]

Jeff Scheetz – City of Avondale, Arizona

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Jeff Scheetz likes to joke that he moved from his native Colorado to Avondale, Arizona, to escape the snow. He’s done that, although it also means he left some of his favorite fishing streams behind when he became chief information officer for the city of 89,334 that’s on the western boundary of Phoenix. However, Scheetz […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

For months, tacked above Jalen Byford’s desk at the Oklahoma Office of Management and Enterprise Services was a huge map of Oklahoma that he got from the state tourism department. Byford had plastered it with pushpins and Post-it notes denoting places where he had already installed technicians as well as places where he still needed […]

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Onward it goes, the migration of on-premise case management systems to the more secure yet still accessible cloud. Time was when it might have been met with dissent by the people who administer Michigan’s Macomb County, but as Chief Information Officer Jako van Blerk assures, the process proceeds according to plan and with the support […]

John Collins – Lynchburg City Schools

Est. reading time: 4 mins

As festivals go, this one won’t conjure up memories of Woodstock, Live Aid or Coachella. No one gets inundated by storms causing seas of mud, no rock stars take jets to play multiple venues in a day, and the setting is south central Virginia, not the California desert. But John Collins has very high hopes […]

Jeffrey Hall – HMC Hospitality Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When the first Hooters restaurant opened in Clearwater, Florida, in 1983, the company branded itself as “delightfully tacky, yet unrefined.” Servers in low-cut shirts and short orange skirts served basic fare like chicken wings, burgers and beer. Nearly 40 years later, those staples remain, but behind the scenes, technology infrastructure provides modern conveniences that serve […]

W hen Amplify Snack Brands was acquired by Hershey in early 2018, the company’s IT team began integrating with the candy giant’s systems and infrastructure.

Joseph Patuto – Middlesex Community College

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Credit him for foresight. It was around a quarter-century ago when Joseph R. Patuto began assembling infrastructure for off-campus learning at Middlesex Community College. The need for it was widely doubted and the faculty were often unreceptive to the ideas of this former systems engineer from Digital Equipment Corp. “To a lot of people there […]

Jean Guezmir – St. Catherine University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Jean Guezmir’s tech career was going well and she wasn’t planning on making big changes. At Target, for instance, she drove major improvements to the supply chain and partnered to replace the retailer’s enterprise resource planning platform and software, among other tasks.

Jack Kufahl – Michigan Medicine

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Jack Kufahl hadn’t been chief information security officer for Michigan Medicine for very long when he was confronted with a computer problem in a radiology imaging lab. The lab staff knew its computer was aging. Its software had been patched and pieced together over the years. It was past upgrading and because of the cost, […]

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
