There is a vast amount of data being generated every day in the world, coming from a variety of sources, with different formats, quality levels, etc. This new data, together with the archived historical data, constitute the seed for future knowledge discovery and value generation in several fields of eScience. Discovering value from data is a complex computing process where data is the key resource, not only during its processing, but also during its entire life cycle. However, there is still a huge concern about how to organize and manage this data in all fields, and at all scales, for efficient usage and exploitation during all data life cycles. Although several specific Data LifeCycle (DLC) models have been recently defined for particular scenarios, we argue that there is no global and comprehensive DLC framework to be widely used in different fields. For this reason, in this paper we present and describe a comprehensive scenario agnostic Data LifeCycle (COSA-DLC) model successfully addressing all challenges included in the 6Vs, namely Value, Volume, Variety, Velocity, Variability and Veracity, not tailored to any specific environment, but easy to be adapted to fit the requirements of any particular field. We conclude that a comprehensive scenario agnostic DLC model provides several advantages, such as facilitating global data organization and integration, easing the adaptation to any kind of scenario, guaranteeing good quality data levels, and helping save design time and efforts for the research and industrial communities.
