Big data represents a new era in data exploration. Less is known on how big data impact on supply chain resilience. This paper explores the relationship between big data and supply chain resilience with considering the mediating role of supply chain visibility and the moderating role of supply chain complexity. Based on data obtained from Chinese manufacturing firms, the analysis shows that there is a direct relationship between big data and supply chain resilience. Big data also enhances supply chain resilience by improving visibility. However, contrary to the hypothesis supply chain complexity moderate the relationship in a negative direction.
