Objectives: Major countries have promoted Research and Development (R&D) policies on a governmental level with a global move to preoccupy the market that arises from this technological progress. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Concentrating on the base software computing technology, this study proposes a practical method of evaluating a nation’s technological level. It does so by testing whether a nation’s technological competitiveness using patent and paper statistics as measures of a nation’s R&D productivity and influence of scientific technology significantly affects the technological level of a nation that is measured based on the subjective answers of experts. Findings: In this study, an empirical analysis was performed to verify whether patent and paper technological competitiveness, patent technological competitiveness and paper technological competitiveness, respectively, of the base software computing technology present a significant effect on the Delphi Survey’s value. The results of the analysis are as follows. First, patent technological competitiveness has a significantly positive effect on Delphi Survey’s value. Second, paper technological competitiveness has significantly positive effect on Delphi Survey’s value. In conclusion, the study’s technological competitiveness value from patent and paper evaluation indicators has a significant effect on the technological level measured by experts. This indicates that the evaluation method for technological competitiveness using indicators from patents and papers as products of R&D to measure productivity and the influence of science and technology can be exploited for an objective measurement of the national technological level. Improvements/Applications: Therefore, through additional research with various industries applied, the practicality of the national technological level evaluation is expected to appear.
