The presentation analyzes how OSS effects Japanese IT companies’ business growth both through simple use and by deeper engagement as stakeholders in OSS communities. The methodology we employ in this study is to investigate the effect on the business growth by OSS utilization and contribution in Japanese IT companies. “The more IT companies contribute to OSS communities, the more they are able to acquire economic effect”. According to this methodology, we sent out a detailed questionnaire survey to IT companies in Japan, during 2012, and analyzed it statistically. This is the first time that such a link between the utilization of OSS and economic growth has been explored in the context of Japan, and it can hopefully lay a foundation for further study regarding the real economic value of this approach to software.
