Microsoft Executive Myerson to Leave Amid Corporate Restructuring

The current executive vice president for the product group, Rajesh Jha, will head the experiences and devices division.

This has pushed Microsoft to focus on the internet cloud, artificial intelligence, and services for connected "internet of things" devices. Under Satya Nadella, Microsoft had been shifting its focus to cloud and AI platforms, leveraging AI through its Garage initiative.

Much of the Windows software effort, called the Windows Platform Team, will move under cloud and enterprise software leader Scott Guthrie's group, along with several AI initiatives. He was responsible for supervising the company's products including Windows, Surface, Xbox, Windows Server and HoloLens Mixed Reality.

In a major reorganisation at American technology giant Microsoft, its Windows Chief Terry Myerson is leaving the company after spending 21 years. Microsoft's cloud computing division, Azure, has proved one of its fastest growing businesses, and its Office 365 subscription service is racking up users quicker than many expected.

The company also announced the formation of two engineering teams who will help "accelerate [their] innovation and better serve the needs of [their] customers and partners long into the future".

As always, it's recommended that you read through the known issues before installing a new build, and be aware that more known issues can be added over time.




Windows 10 Spring Creators Update is coming to our PCs very soon as Windows Central reported that the update has an April 10 rollout based on anonymous sources. "The goal of this team is to instill a unifying product ethos across our end-user experiences and devices", Nadella said.

Scott Guthrie, now president of the Microsoft Corp.

Panos Panay, who now has the title of chief product officer.

AI research will continue to live in a separate group under Harry Shum, and Microsoft promised there would be a fair amount of coordination between the revamped cloud and AI groups.

The group "will ensure our AI platform and experience efforts are deeply grounded within Microsoft's core values and principles and benefit the broader society", Nadella wrote. Some of the Windows team will also operate under the Azure group (more on this later). 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.

Nadella shared the news in an email to employees.
