One of our primary goals of partnering with OraPub is to harness their years of technical, hands-on experience and proven methodology directly into the work flow and reporting of our current and future product releases.

Confio Software, the leader in Wait-Time application performance management tools, today announced a partnership with OraPub, a recognized leader of training and consulting for Oracle system performance. The partnership's charter is to help bring best practice database performance methods to the database administrator (DBA) community. The agreement will align the companies to work closely to further develop and refine response time and Wait-Time methodologies.

"OraPub is widely recognized in the DBA community as a leader in creating and sharing best practices for Oracle performance management. Their training and publication of Wait-Time based analysis techniques has helped thousands of Oracle DBAs pinpoint system and application performance problems," said Don Bergal, chief operating officer, Confio Software. "One of our primary goals of partnering with OraPub is to harness their years of technical, hands-on experience and proven methodology directly into the work flow and reporting of our current and future product releases."

Confio Software has long heralded OraPub's training and services as one of the definitive sources for DBAs seeking knowledge on database performance management and analysis.    Specifically, the partnership will allow Confio to integrate OraPub's knowledge and understanding of the Oracle product into future product releases.

Craig Shallahamer, founder and president of OraPub and author of the book, Forecasting Oracle Performance, commented, "In my mind, one company got-it from the beginning. Not only has Confio embraced the elegance of response time analysis, but has created the graphical interface to capture the essence of Response Time Analysis and effectively lead the performance analyst. Partnering with Confio will make sure that we have access to its innovative technology to study and progress the practice of database performance analysis for the DBA community."

Similar to OraPub's focus on response time methodology, the Confio Igniter Suite uses a Wait-Time analysis approach that measures application and database performance delays and provides drill-down analytics into the exact commands and database processes causing delays. The Confio Igniter Suite is an easy to use tool for DBAs to identify the exact modules and screens that affect database performance and the responsible source. Ignite shows exactly where the problem resides and who should own the problem to ensure the best path to resolution.
