This session introduces a data analysis method that an OSPO can use to plan an open source strategy on contributions, as well as the results of an analysis of applying this method at Sony. As the maturity model suggests, companies often move from a compliant open-source usage stage to a contribution-driven business application stage. When a company is in the contribution stage, a major challenge for an OSPO is to know OSS trends and choose OSS projects that are useful to the company from among many projects. We propose an analysis method to address the issue using the Open Source Contributor Index(OSCI). OSCI, developed by EPAM, is an index of a company's active contributors. The data for calculating OSCI is the commit log on GitHub, and the commit log collection tool is open source. We propose to use OSCI in the first stage to find the leading companies and in the second stage to look at the commit log to see how often companies contribute to which projects. We used this method to identify leading companies and analyze where they contribute. We contributed the modification to the upstream, so our approach is verifiable. This session introduces a data analysis method and results that can be used for an OSPO to plan a contribution-centric open source strategy.
