Great Plains, Not Great Pains: Why Times Are Changing for Dynamics GP HR and Payroll
My family still does not understand why I take so many trips to Fargo, ND. I try to explain that not only are the people super friendly, but Fargo has turned into a bit of a tech hub.

This subject was recently discussed in Fortune's December article: Inside Fargo, America's Most Undervalued Tech Hub.
If Fargo had to limit itself to a single story, it would be that of Great Plains Software, a fledgling startup built by North Dakotan Doug Burgum over nearly two decades and acquired by Microsoft in 2001 for $1.1 billion. Today, Microsoft is located on the south side of town and has grown to four buildings with more than 1,500 employees-the company's third-largest campus in North America.
