Esse artigo discute teoricamente o valor do Big Data para aquisição de vantagens competitivas em contrapartida com a Visão Baseada em Recursos e a Teoria das Capacidades Dinâmicas. A conclusão da dialética apresentada nesta discussão propõe que apenas os recursos e as capacidades de Big Data não são suficientes para obtenção de vantagens competitivas ou ganhos de desempenhos. Sendo assim, outras capacidades e recursos são necessários para ativação do valor do Big Data.
