Data analytics capabilities (DAC) create value for organisations. Prior literature has shown that organizational DAC are associated with different factors and lead to different value propositions. To provide a comprehensive understanding of both the antecedents and consequences of DAC in organizational context, this study examines the antecedents and consequences of DAC based on a literature review of the articles published at the leading information systems (IS) conferences and top IS journals. We synthesize four types of antecedents (data, business and management, technology, and organizational environment) and four consequences of DAC (innovation, business performance, strategy development, and decision making). This study also suggests the future research directions to guide IS scholars’ research in the field of DAC.
