Cloud ascendant: Microsoft launches major reorg as Windows head departs

Cloud ascendant: Microsoft launches major reorg as Windows head departs

The first group is developing the core technologies used by Microsoft's Mixed Reality device group and Azure customers working on augmented reality or virtual reality, while the second focuses on AI-driven cloud services that are made available to Azure customers.

The driver behind the move is the forthcoming departure of Terry Myerson, a 21-year Microsoft veteran who serves as executive vice president of the Windows and Devices Group. Terry has been instrumental in helping me arrive at this new organizational structure, and I deeply appreciate his leadership and insight as we've worked through the opportunity that lies ahead.

As it has been overtaken by the likes of Google and Apple, Microsoft has been rebooting as consumers shift away from Windows-powered computers to mobile devices. A couple of units that are now part of Microsoft's AI + Research group are going to be moving into Guthrie's new organization.

What this ultimately means for Microsoft and Windows remains to be seen.

New Experiences and Technology: Kudo Tsunoda will continue to lead this team to define how we engage users with high-value experiences to help them achieve more. Nadella has selected Rajesh Jha, executive vice president of the Office 365 group, to lead it.

KitGuru Says: Microsoft has gone through some major changes over the last few years, and that seems to be continuing. The RS5 would be the last Redstone release as the software giant will release new versions of Windows 10 with a name referring to the release date. In a note to employees, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced the formation of two new engineering teams, one that will be focused on "Experiences & Devices" and another to lead its "Cloud + AI" efforts. It will be responsible the development of Azure and the company's rapidly growing portfolio of artificial intelligence tools, a good portion of which are hosted on the cloud platform. Cloud AI Platform Corporate VP Joseph Sirosh will join this new group, as well. Eric and team will take guidance on all AI-related areas from Harry Shum and work very closely with AI+R. Through good times and bad, I've loved your feedback. "I've loved your applause when we've done great work and I've loved the push to do better", Myerson said. Having a deep sense of customers' unmet and unarticulated needs must drive our innovation. "We hope open sourcing this project will help increase community engagement and bring more of your favorite distros to the Microsoft Store", said Tara Raj of Microsoft's WSL team in a blog post.
