The article is devoted to the research of the information service of open data in the context of influence on the development of the regional economy. The concepts of "ecosystem", "open data", their essence and significance as endogenous and exogenous factors are considered. The state of development of separate elements of the open data ecosystem formed in Ukraine is characterized. The foreign experience of organizing such information resources has been analyzed. The main problems are identified, such as weak integration of regional information resources into a single open data system, insufficient use of the potential of domestic IT professionals. The directions of improving the ecosystem of the open data of Ukraine are proposed.
