Japan Open Source Software End-User Survey and Solution Provider Adoption Trend 2011

100 Pages IDC April 03, 2012 SKU: IDC3860710

This IDC study presents a summary and analysis of the survey, which IDC conducted among IT system managers and solution providers, to explore the usage trends, reasons for usage, issues, and future open source software (OSS) usage plans in companies.

"Through the utilization of low-cost solutions that leverage OSS, solution providers will be able to increase revenue from IT businesses in the middle of suppressed IT spending by enterprises that have experienced economic stagnation due to the financial crisis and the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake. Users expect OSS to reduce implementation costs as well as dramatically reduce operation/maintenance costs, and solution providers will need to demonstrate that their solutions are capable of reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) after implementation. In particular, it is possible to show bigger results for large enterprises that are suffering from higher operating/maintenance costs. As targeting major enterprises can lead to significant revenue increases for solution providers, a win-win relationship can be built between the both parties," says Mitsuhiro Iriya, market analyst, Software and Security, IDC Japan.
