Japan Open Source Software End-User Trend 2016

This IDC study, summarizes and analyzes the results obtained from a survey of corporate IT system managers to explore, among other things, open source software (OSS) use, implementation objectives, problems, and future usage plans."The usage of OSS has increased both in traditional systems and cloud environments; and it is likely that OSS will continue to become more and more crucial to both IT suppliers and user companies. Rather than just OSS technologies themselves, the biggest benefit of incorporating OSS into solutions comes from being able to build and harness large ecosystems consisting of OSS. It is likely that these OSS ecosystems will then become wellsprings for innovation and essential for user companies if they are to succeed in the digital transformation on the 3rd Platform. For IT suppliers, the employment of OSS ecosystems is also one of the most crucial strategies for shoring up competitive dominance on the 3rd Platform," argues IDC Japan Software and Security Research Manager Mitsuhiro Iriya.IDC Opinion Methodology Definition Executive Summary Essential Guidance Synopsis
