In this era of information technology, there is a huge and excessive amount of fully distributed, structured and unstructured data which is usually referred as 'Big Data'. This data cannot be easily and directly used for business purposes due to its excessiveness nature. Therefore, it is required to intelligently process this large amount of data to extract desired information and examine pattern to make decisions and predictions for certain business objectives. In this context, Model Driven Engineering (MDE) techniques are frequently applied for Big Data analytics. This paper investigates the latest models, approaches and tools for Big Data analytics using model driven approaches. Particularly, a Systematic Literature Review (SLR) is performed to select and analyze 24 researches published during 2010 to 2017. This leads to identify 18 models, 13 tools, and 10 approaches for big data analytics using model driven approaches. The findings of this SLR are highly valuable for the researchers, students and practitioners of the domain.
