However, many open government data initiatives either fail or never start because of the challenges it has. After conducting the systematic literature review, it was determined that there is a lack of study covering analyzing the benefits and challenges of open government data in a holistic perspective and providing a road map to overcome these difficulties for our country. In order to satisfy this gap, this study aims to define the benefits and challenges of open government data from a holistic socio-technical perspective and derive a roadmap including guidelines to overcome these difficulties for the benefit of organizations aiming to transition to open government data.
