Public sector is under pressure to produce public services efficiently. Open innovation (OI) is seen one problem-oriented solution which in e-governance context has emerged as open government data (OGD) sharing. Though the potential of the OGD is recognized, the link between data and innovation seems self-evident but ambiguous. Therefore, the question of What is the role of private sector in creating economic value from OGD is to build the more comprehensive picture of the possibility of private sector companies to utilize OGD resources to promote their own innovations to obtain business value. The literature review revealed that public sector defines the value of OGD and prefers to govern innovations. It raises the question whether the public sector is willing to divide the control of the data to enable data further use for the commercial value. The identified barriers in OGD and OI need functional systems for creating successful OGD initiatives.
