About Us



Real People. Real Optimization. Real Solutions.


No other company on this planet can provide both predictive analytics and performance tuning for Oracle systems like OraPub. Why? Because OraPub's founder and Oracle ACE Director, Craig Shallahamer, literally wrote the books on these subjects.


OraPub is a one-stop location for specialized training in machine learning and Oracle database performance tuning. Our company is designed to help Oracle professionals get the answers and skills they need through engaging training and useful resources.


We cross-train Oracle DBAs to develop and deploy machine learning for their existing monitoring and alerting systems. Our training and services provide an immediate return on investment.


Our online training is uniquely structured for the working professional. For example, all our LVCs are delivered in multiple two-hour sessions, with a day between each session, complete with homework. Craig Shallahamer encourages dialogue throughout every class to ensure students can immediately apply the course content.


With 30 years of experience specializing in Oracle performance and data analysis, Craig's passion and contagious energy for teaching Oracle managers, developers and DBAs makes the learning process valuable – and fun!


Join us on the journey of discovery and answer the big questions every Oracle Profesional faces.
