Abstract
Background: The popularity of the open source software development in the last decade, has brought about

an increased interest from the industry on how to use open source components, participate in the open

source community, build business models around this type of software development, and learn more about

open source development methodologies.

Aim: The aim of this study is to review research carried out on usage of open source components

Aim: The aim of this study is to review research carried out on usage of open source components

and development methodologies by the industry, as well as companies’ participation in the open source

community.

Method: Systematic review through searches in library databases and manual identification of articles from

the open source conference.

Results: 19 articles were identified.

Conclusions: The articles could be divided into four categories: open source as part of component based

software engineering, business models with open source in commercial organization, company participation

in open source development communities, and usage of open source processes within a company. (Less)
