Usually these corporate relocations are driven by the CEO's desire (or CEO's wife's desire) to leave a hick town with a bad climate. I think it's a bad business move, and a bad move for shareholders. The rationale is very thin at best.
Perception is reality, the outside view of Minnesota is changing. The view from outside is we've lost our will to excel. We would prefer to spend less and work our way down to average.
Code 42 doesn't have anything to do with big data/analytics, other than storing data for other people. Not that that's bad, it's just not "big data."
The deafening silence from our elected officials is very dissappointing. We continue to lose technology headquarters due to consolidation and moves like FICO. It would be great to see the Trib spend some cycles reporting on matters as impactful as this ---verses the Prince concerts or the design of the new stadium.
