  • Dilip Krishna, Vice President of Financial Services, Teradata Corporation, which makes heavy-duty data appliances and creates large-scale data warehouses,

  • Dr. John Lietchy, Professor of Marketing and Statistics, Director of the Center for the Study of Global Financial Stability, Pennsylvania State University.
