Openness of Government Data is considered important and is an innovation that influences from the community to prevent corruption by increasing transparency of information and data. This has been done by almost most of the Ministries / Government Agencies in Indonesia in all aspects that include data disclosure in the social, economic, cultural, political and security fields. One of the drivers of the emergence of Open Government Data (OGD) is the era of the industrial revolution 4.0 which has affected all aspects of life with all technological advances so that people tend to require information disclosure in supporting and overseeing the running of the government. Conversely, the lack of utilisation of OGD is something that the Government really needs to pay attention to. Here the author discusses the openness of government data in Indonesia, with several literature review studies and reviews of several journals and interviews with several experts who are expected to provide recommendations related to the importance of data disclosure using several measurement parameters so that the gap between the framework and the OGD concept itself in Indonesia can be considered. In addition, the final goal of this study aims to provide foresight for policies that can be taken by the Government aimed at data transparency that can be used optimally by the general public and does not conflict with policies that have been implemented on data disclosure information.
