Data ecosystems are a phenomenon gaining momentum as more and more organizations realize that novel data-based value propositions might require access to external data sources and inter-organizational collaboration to exploit such data assets. The notion of data ecosystems encompasses constellations composed of autonomous actors that consume, produce, or provide data and other related resources (e.g., software, services, and infrastructure) to co-create value. With rapidly growing activity in the academic community, a state-of-the-art mapping of the research field and its existing knowledge base is of particular importance to effectively guide future research. Thus, we conduct a systematic literature review to identify three distinct research streams manifesting current scientific knowledge. Further, we synthesize these insights into an interdisciplinary research agenda to catalyze future studies in the emerging field of data ecosystems in IS research and beyond.
