Description The open data are considered to be an important building block of Smart City services. Based on the data availability in the cities, companies are building innovative smart services to facilitate the city development. However, most of the practitioners are focusing only on the open data usage but paying little attention to the processes related to the data publication. Thus, there is a lack of understanding the whole process of open data life cycle such as before the data can be open, when they are published and when they need to be archived. Those phases in the open data life cycle are critical for assuring the data accuracy, availability and relevance because the data are analysed, changed, anatomized or generally processed during the whole life cycle. This also creates a set of research challenges for open data. Therefore, in the context of smart cities, this paper proposes to consider Open Data as a Service and identifies the research challenges along with the open data life cycle.
