Many countries regard open government data (OGD) as an engine to stimulate innovation and economic value, and establish an effective OGD platform (OGDP) for public to access and utilize data. Many literature discuss OGD-based and data- driven business model, type of data application, new product development and other commercial value creation process, however, there are still lacks of reliable empirical study and lacks of in-depth analysis of impact mechanism of OGDP on enterprise innovation. This paper will use difference-in-difference method to empirically examine causal effect of OGDP on enterprise innovation performance in different areas, and reveal effect mechanism of OGDP on enterprise innovation. The empirical results not only expand the application field of open innovation theory and data-driven research, but also fill the gap about lacks of empirical study on OGDP impact. Meanwhile, the confirmation of the impact relationship and mechanism of OGDP on enterprise innovation will promote the development of OGDP and guide governments to implement OGDP in most countries.
