That would mean up to 175 new technology jobs in the capital city.

Minnesota-based Eagle Creek already has more than 100 employees in Pierre, providing software services to major corporations. The company also has a center in Valley City, N.D., and is building one in Vermillion. Officials expect to make a decision on a second Pierre center early next year.

Company officials say their "Dakota model" keeps costs low by placing high-tech jobs in rural locations in the northern Great Plains.
