Abstract

Open government data (OGD) has become a trend in recent years. Previous research on OGD has investigated two main areas—supply and demand. However, little is known about how OGD supply is linked to OGD demand. This study is an early attempt to determine the mechanisms that explain how OGD transforms and impacts supply and demand. It also aims to determine the essential pre-conditions driving OGD development. Secondary data from 115 countries were analyzed using partial least squares-structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). The results showed that OGD as a strategic asset does not directly impact a country’s development; instead, OGD requires government capability (GC) to unleash its values. GC fully mediates the relationship between OGD and its impacts. In order to achieve OGD, information and communications technology infrastructure (ICTI) should be well designed and developed and there should be a high level of data security (DS).
