Microsoft Reorganizes: Puts Focus On Cloud, AI

Myerson leaves after 21 years, and nearly three years in what some have called the hardest job at Microsoft - trying to build a device business after the company exited the phone handset business, while charting the future of Windows in a world that is moving away from the client-computing model that it led. Panay's role makes sense, since he has already had broad involvement with products like Xbox, HoloLens and Surface. Mr. Nadella succeeded Steven A. Ballmer, the longtime ally and friend of Microsoft's co-founder, Bill Gates.

Microsoft revealed earlier this year that the company will fully support Progressive Web Apps (PWA) in Windows 10.

The software giant reorganized its business Thursday morning around its growing Azure cloud-computing operations and its stalwart Office productivity business. A couple of units that are now part of Microsoft's AI + Research group are going to be moving into Guthrie's new organization.

Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft has sought to sell those technologies to cloud customers as new ways to oversee workers, manage equipment and offer training in corporate environments.

The shakeup brings with it many questions, about Microsoft's future and what impact this will have on Windows and its other service.

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.

Microsoft telegraphed its plan to make AI an even bigger part of the company previous year. All of these people will report to Jha. It will be led by Scott Guthrie, the current executive vice president for the Cloud and Enterprise Group. This team will continue to build first-party products and the core building block cloud services for third parties on Azure. Roanne Sones, who heads up technical engagement with OEMs and silicon vendors, will also be part of Zander's team. One will focus on experiences and devices, and the other on cloud and artificial intelligence. Guthire also gets charge of AI speech, vision, augmented and virtual reality (what Microsoft calls mixed reality) efforts. The latter area seems to be a particular focus of Nadella's reorganization. Cloud AI Platform Corporate VP Joseph Sirosh will join this new group, as well. Kipman and team will work closely with Harry Shum on all things AI related.

I'm hearing from my contacts there are not going to be layoffs associated with today's reorg. The feature is now limited to Microsoft's Outlook, Hotmail, Live, and Office 365 services-anyone who uses Gmail, Yahoo, or Exchange Server calendars is going to miss out.
