Acxiom President and CEO Scott Howe (right) talks with employees last year at company offices in Conway. Acxiom last week reached a deal to sell the bulk of the company to global advertising holding company Interpublic Group.

To hear Jerry Jones tell it, people won't notice much difference in Acxiom's presence in central Arkansas after the close of a $2.3 billion deal to sell three-fourths of the company to global advertising holding company Interpublic Group.

You can take whatever the mucky-mucks say with a grain of salt. The kind of jobs at Acxiom can be been done from anywhere with an internet connection. Whatever makes the most dollars and sense will be what they do.

The advantages current Acxiom employees have are threefold:
1) Nobody understands Acxiom's data (repeatedly mentioned as the focus of this deal) better than current Acxiom employees.
2) Nobody has a better relationship with their current clients better than their current employees. The new ownership has talked about how this gives them an advantage with big banks and auto companies that are current customers of Acxiom.
3) Central Arkansas employees are dirt cheap compared to most other U.S. geographic locations, and federal laws limit the ability of non u.s. employees to access Acxiom data.
