John Booth, Blue Stone -- a Huron Consulting Group solution
John Booth is the practice leader of infrastructure and integrations at Huron Consulting Group and has over twenty years of experience with information technology. He is somewhat unique by his focus on both Hyperion infrastructure and Hyperion applications. John started his technical career as a support analyst for vinyl-sign-cutting systems in 1992. He moved through a variety of increasingly complex technical support and senior software development roles. Between 1998 and 2007, John spent his time in the corporate world at Capital One Financial, where in the last several years he managed the first five Capital One Hyperion Planning applications. John made the leap into consulting in 2008 and really embraced the Hyperion community online through the Oracle Technical Network forums as well as the Network 54 Essbase forum. In 2009, he brought his blog Metavero.com online and has posted many technical articles, from making IE 8 work with earlier versions of Hyperion to focusing on the Amazon cloud. John is also actively involved in ODTUG, from the Kscope conference to experts' panels.
