Combining the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud computing is pursuing new levels of efficiency in delivering IoTas-a-Service (IoTaaS). In such scenario, Public Administrations (PAs) benefit from digitalization process improving development of innovation and administrative transparency. In this paper we propose a strategy to evaluate the quality of information in order to deliver IoTaaS in Smart City context. The goal of the work is to provide an advanced method to support PAs in the process of enhancing public information assets. The proposed strategy extends traditional approaches by using Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) models for the numerical and qualitative evaluation of public data and related metadata. Furthermore, it provides guidelines to implement the models starting from the data path.
