What We Do
Through our research and fieldwork, we have spearheaded a number
of now-accepted, industry-wide best practices. For example, we have
introduced to the Oracle community block selectivity based index analysis,
wait event analysis, response time analysis, multi-perspective computing
system analysis (3 circle diagnosis), ratio modeling forecasting, and analytical capacity
planning modeling. These have all been initially publicized and driven
into the mainstream by OraPub's publications, consulting engagements,
teaching, products, and speaking engagements.
OraPub's founder, Mr. Craig Shallahamer, is a keynote speaker and
continues to research and publish multiple technical papers as well as
present at Oracle conferences each year. His classes have been taught to
over 1000 students located on 6 continents in 23 countries. Nearly 30%
of OraPub students are consultants!
