The opening of government by stimulating online engagement and opening of data, change the way how government and its stakeholders interact. Government discloses public data to stimulate transparency, accountability and encourage stakeholders to get involved in government decision-making, thereby fostering innovation in government. All over the world, governments are opening up their data to provide the public with datasets to engage them in processes of public service provision and policy-making. This digitalization transforms the government in various facets, including the government structure, policy-making practices, and the power balance between citizens and their governments. Although politicians have expressed high ambitions, the implementations and related outcomes have been modest so far. Many challenges are encountered and how these transformations would look like is ill understood. Furthermore, large amount of data can be combined, analyzed and processed for various purposes to stimulate innovation or create public value. Traditional policy-making and surveillance functions are to be changed due to the utilization of 'Big Data' analytics, new social computational techniques, distributed ledger (blockchain) technology and stakeholders' involvement. Nowadays, data can be used for predictive analytics to improve public policy-making. Furthermore, the Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data can be used for monitoring, surveillance and other related purposes to improve policy-making process. Yet what constitutes open government and how transparency and accountability can be achieved and the full potential of policy-making in the digital age still remains underexplored and lacking in proven results.
