Transformation at CME Group: Fostering innovation and managing change

Cloud transformations present many opportunities for growth and innovation, but they don't come without their challenges. In this episode, David Linthicum and Julie Winkler, the chief commercial officer at CME Group, discuss CME’s ongoing transformation journey. For Julie, the opportunities lie in fostering innovation and providing deeper customer insights to make better trading decisions. Overcoming challenges entails managing change and working with a solid collaborator for guidance. 


We took a very broad view in the journey of how we kind of got to deliver...and really thinking about how we operate today, bringing together a cross-functional group across technology, across the business.
