Open Source Software Use and Engagement Survey

By: Al GillenGroup Vice President, Software Development and Open Source

On-line Presentation


This IDC Survey looks at the use of open source software, both community supported and commercially supported, in the context of the overall use of software use among U.S. businesses with over 249 employees.

"Open source software has clearly turned the corner, as this IDC Survey found that 8 of 10 organizations use open source software today, with the majority of those planning to increase their use in the future," said Al Gillen, Group VP, Software Development and Open Source. "There remains, however, a 22% portion of organizations surveyed by IDC that still are not using open source software. Overall, there remains substantial addressable market opportunities for providers of commercial support for open source software."
