Temple University’s first Big Data Conference is about to sell out.

Scheduled for Sept. 27, the conference focuses on how businesses and other organizations can use big data, those petabyes to exabytes of opportunity.

Keynote speakers include Suja Chandrasekaran, Walmart’s Vice President of Enterprise Information Management, and Adrian Gardner, Chief Information Officer at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Mark Headd, the city’s Chief Data Officer, will also speak.

Tickets are $695 or $595 for Temple alumni.

Register for the conference here.

Conference co-organizer and Temple professor David Schuff said it was the right time for a conference of this kind because there’s been a “fundamental shift” in how businesses use data.

“Data is an asset, and there is a real need for companies to develop a strategy for learning from and making sense of the data they have,” he wrote in an email to Technically Philly.

The conference was organized by a committee of Temple professors and other professionals.
