Japan Open Source Software End-User Survey 2010

79 Pages IDC March 15, 2011 SKU: IDC6197569

This IDC study, which is a translation of the Japanese report IDC #J10460102, explores the usage trends of open source software (OSS) and analyzes the types of OSS used, reasons for implementation, issues faced by users, and future implementation trends.

"Companies are forced to curtail their IT spending due to the economic slump in the wake of the Lehman shock in September 2008. Amid this situation, companies increasingly expect the use of OSS to reduce costs. By actively proposing the use of OSS, vendors and systems integrators (SIs) can satisfy users' needs to reduce costs. It is important for vendors and SIs to clearly define the support for OSS and select the OSS that matches users' needs in addition to the consideration of cost advantages," says Tsuneo Tosaka, research manager, Software and Security, IDC Japan.
