O’Reilly reported a 45% growth in enterprise sales during the first half of 2022 on technical content and technologies, especially on its cloud communications platform Infobip. No further data was disclosed.

Through a PR-driven press release, the Boston-based media tech company also announced it added 82 new hires in the same period, resulting in an increase of its global employee base by 20%.

Recent platform innovations include on-demand courses, Microsoft Azure cloud labs, mobile app enhancements, and an improved audiobook experience.

O’Reilly expanded the delivery of its Superstream events as well, with new series focused on security and software development, joining the existing series on AI and ML, data, cloud, software architecture, and open source.

In 2022, O’Reilly hosted two free O’Reilly Radar events that attracted 8,000 registrations, including Building the Workforce of the Future, featuring Jeff Teper, Tim O’Reilly, and Robin Carnahan, and Innovation in the Cloud with host Sam Newman. Later this year, O’Reilly will host similar events on security and on data and AI.
