Abstract: Organisations are challenged by increased environmental complexity and uncertainty. Advanced analytics and the processing of big data offer a potential solution to reducing this challenge. Advanced analytic groups have been established in organisations to provide services and support for these new tools and their related data. The degree of intraorganisational power accumulated by these groups could help promote adoption of these services and improve organisational performance. A research framework and propositions are developed to promote the evaluation of intraorganisational power as a mediating variable toward understanding the contribution of advanced analytics groups' contributions to organisation performance.

Keywords: intraorganisational power; IPW; advanced analytics; big data; organisation effectiveness; organisational performance.
