Executive Q&A: Inside Deutsche Börse’s Phased Innovation Strategy

By Rizal Ahmed, Chief Content Officer – SAPinsider

A common mistake made by many CIOs and other executives when trying to drive their transformation projects is that they try to implement too much too soon without getting enough support from their teams and line of business stakeholders. Change is hard, and if you only try to force it from the top, you will not be able to build sustainable results. This video Q&A shares important insights from the transformation of one of Germany’s most prominent financial organizations and their multi-year project. Understand how Deutsche Börse is prioritizing innovation within its core processes starting with basic functions such as billing and travel and expense before moving to customer facing and more complex initiatives. Learn the mix of SAP and other cloud -based solutions Deutsche Börse is relying on and how it is planning a complete renovation of its existing infrastructure. The key is turning your innovation initiatives from push to pull, and that’s exactly what Lars was able to achieve at Deutsche Börse. Watch the video and:
