    Verona Wis. is a modern example of a retrofitted bedroom community into a company town. Epic Systems is to medical data what SAS was and still is to general big data. When Epic moved from Madison, Wis. to Verona Wis. 3-4 decades later, construction cranes still hover over this bedroom community pointing to its location if anyone is still unsure where Epic Systems is located.
    The possible difference in this company town has an existing real estate industry in Dane County along with other related value sucking industries provide most of Epic System employee industry housing. Several articles in the local news org, Madison.com exist but possibly no one goes there due to troubled paywall implementations attempts, better to visit channel3000.com or an older Boston Globe article regarding Epic Systems. So now its data miners instead of coal miners that dominate this company town, once a sleepy bedroom community of Madison, Wis.
    Regarding Verona’s pre-Epic Systems population was less than the current company population hovering around 10,000, the largest private company in Dane County. Only government surpasses Epic Systems in employment due to Madison being a county seat, state government plus a major USA university.
