    Microsoft / Great Plains Software 10th Anniversary - Fargo Newspaper Story Series


    I know many Microsoft Dynamics partners were associated with Great Plains Software prior to the acquisition by Microsoft 10 years ago. Now you have a chance to reflect on the history of Great Plains Software as well as the happenings throughout the last 10 years with a 7-part story the local Fargo, ND paper (The Forum) is running as a special series focusing on Microsoft’s history in Fargo in commemoration of the 10-year anniversary.

    About this project (courtesy of The Forum)

    It’s been 10 years since Microsoft first made its mark on the North Dakota prairie.

    Since then, the software giant has carved out an unmistakable identity for itself in the Fargo-Moorhead community and beyond. Nearly everyone knows someone who works at Microsoft.

    But the company’s story here begins long before the Microsoft name took hold in Fargo. It begins with a little company called Great Plains Software and a big dreamer named Doug Burgum.

    The Forum was granted unprecedented access inside Microsoft during the month of May to bring you this seven-part series – a window into the past, present and future of Microsoft in Fargo.

    Microsoft Dynamics Partner Community News Now Available Through Mobile App


    Well, I’m happy to say I’m finally now using a Windows Phone 7 device thanks to the partnership between Microsoft and Verizon Wireless. I’ve only owned my HTC Trophy for a brief amount of time, but so far it is a pretty sweet device!

    One of the first applications I downloaded to my phone is a great new app courtesy of Microsoft’s Eric Ligman (Director of Worldwide Partner Experience) – the Microsoft Partner Info mobile app. This app connects partners to multiple social media and online resources driven by Microsoft at both the worldwide and subsidiary level. As of Friday, May 27, I was lucky enough to have the Microsoft Dynamics Partner Community blog included in v1.2 of the app.

    It is a common fact the world has become a very mobile workforce and it’s a no-brainer that Microsoft partners are leading the charge in these efforts, so why not deliver news to you in an easy to consume format via your mobile device.
