As Abe Alirez was growing up, he dreamt of driving a truck—hauling loads of freight that help keep the economy going while seeing the U.S. along its highways and byways. Alirez also loved technology. He wasn’t old enough to drive a truck, but he was old—and skilled enough—to repair his friends’ video game systems. For […]

One chilly morning in January 2020, Tony Neumann got the call every IT director dreads. Some strange splash screens—also known as boot or welcome screens—were popping up on devices given to employees of the City of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where Neumann has worked since 1999.

The National Hurricane Center calls it the “cone of uncertainty”—the projected track of a hurricane for five days measured from its current position. New Orleans—and Loyola University—were in the cone of uncertainty eight times in 2020 as three tropical storms and two hurricanes struck Louisiana.

Even under the best of circumstances, a cloud migration might consume the efforts of 30 to 40 technologists for at least three months.

After acquiring companies over the past several years, Imperva has integrated dozens of new employees, assets and systems. In most ways, these additions have made the cybersecurity software company stronger. However, it became clear to executives that disparate systems were difficult for customers to navigate.

When insuring a new car, just-purchased home or even a business, the preferred choice may be to put one’s trust in a company that’s been around for over a century—not one that started up a few days ago. Yet, that trust can be just as quickly lost if that same company has an outdated website […]

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.
