O’Reilly Recognized for Providing Technical Workers with Innovative Live and Online Learning Experiences

BOSTON—November 25, 2020O’Reilly, the premier source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, today announced that it’s been named to the Training Industry Top 20 IT Training Companies List for the fourth consecutive year. Training Industry, a leading research and information resource for corporate learning leaders, prepares the Training Industry Top 20 report on critical sectors of the training marketplace to better inform professionals about the best and most innovative providers of training services and technologies.

O’Reilly was recognized for its leading live and online learning experiences, which are accessed through O’Reilly online learning. Designed to empower organizations and their workforces to keep pace with today’s fast-changing technological world, these resources help learners develop technical and business skills as well as expertise for today’s most popular and useful emerging technologies.

“Continuous training and skills development remains a high priority for both businesses and their most important asset—their employees,” said Laura Baldwin, president at O’Reilly. “We’ve seen a significant surge in usage and traffic on O’Reilly online learning, with a 13% increase in overall usage and a 40% increase in the number of registrations for our live online training courses in the last six months, as virtual learning becomes a greater priority. We’re proud to be recognized once again as a learning leader, helping today’s technical workers succeed.”

O’Reilly online learning also offers expert playlists, collections of top technology and business content on the topics that matter most to learners, handpicked by industry thought leaders. And with the company’s latest feature, O’Reilly Answers—a natural language processing engine that delivers quick, contextually relevant answers to difficult technical questions—it’s also the only solution that enables learning in the flow of work.

“This year’s Top 20 IT Training Companies quickly adapted to organizations’ changing work environments to provide content through various modalities to meet the needs of learners working from home,” said Ken Taylor, president at Training Industry, Inc. “These modalities include immersive learning approaches such as virtual labs, virtual instruction through a variety of technology platforms, and on-demand learning. These companies continue to modify their delivery to ensure learners are receiving the best training that works with their schedule.”

Selection to the 2020 Top 20 IT Training Companies list was based on the breadth and quality of the IT training content and courses offered, the company’s leadership, its innovation in IT training, its size and growth potential, the strength of its clients, and its geographic reach.
