Abstract: The prominence of big data analytics and associated capabilities has been well noted in allied literature (Wamba et al., 2016). There has been increasing reliance on SC resilience for business firms to sustain their operations in the face of disruptions. While several BDA-based capabilities are important in their own ways, BDA infrastructure is the core (Wamba et al., 2016). Yet its significance in the growth of SC resilience is not understood clearly. With different types of BDA infrastructure capabilities, their inter-relationships also require empirical attention. Perceptual responses were gathered from 176 professionals engaged in BDA through an online survey. The study used partial least squares in ADANCO 2.0.1 to analyse the collected responses and hypotheses testing. Findings showed BDA infrastructure-based capabilities are strongly associated and have the potential to contribute to SC resilience development.
