Pete Hohenhaus is a long time business intelligence engineer and SharePoint administrator.  Prior to moving to the IT side of the house, Pet worked in costing, pricing, forecasting, and public utilities economics.  He worked for many years on business intelligence and data warehousing projects, using the Brio, Business Objects, SPSS, and Cognos tools, before focusing on the Microsoft business intelligence platform.  He first deployed SharePoint, SharePoint 2001, while working as the Data Delivery Team Lead and SSAS cube designer at Capital One Auto Finance.

Pete worked extensively with SSAS Cubes and the ProClarity front end tools from 2000 through 2005 before changing his primary focus to SharePoint.  One of his last major BI/DW projects was co-designing the DW schemas and designing all of the cubes and ProClarity Reports for the first phase of the Idaho State Department of Education’s no child left behind initiative.

He was the tech lead for SharePoint and Reporting Services at SuperValu/Albertsons in Boise and Minneapolis, for several years, from 2005 to 2008, before moving back to Omaha.  He has worked on a series of SharePoint 2010 deployments, and SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 migrations.

He has a BA in economics from the University of Minnesota and an MBA in business management, with a sub-focus on IT management, from the University of St. Thomas, both in Minneapolis-St. Paul.  He has taught applied managerial economics, information resource management, and end user computing management, as an adjunct in the MBA program at St. Thomas.  He has also taught decision support systems and operations modeling at Oregon Tech.

He helped found the Idaho SharePoint Users Group in Boise.  During 2008 and 2009 he was a frequent presenter at the North Central Business Intelligence Users Group, SharePoint Saturdays, and TechFuse in Minneapolis-St. Paul.
