InfoWorld: Microsoft reportedly to reorganize next week

“Microsoft is reportedly expected to announce a companywide
reorganization next week that will see the software giant realign
its operations to focus more heavily on the needs of customers and
software developers and place less emphasis on products and
technologies.”

“The restructuring efforts were initiated by Microsoft President
Steve Ballmer, according to a story in Friday’s Wall Street
Journal, and as previously reported by InfoWorld.”

“At present, Microsoft is split up into four main operating
groups: the sales and support group headed up by Ballmer; the
platforms and applications group run by Group Vice President Paul
Maritz; the interactive media group also run by Ballmer since the
resignation of Group Vice President Pete Higgins in November of
last year; and the worldwide operating groups under the leadership
of Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Bob
Herbold.”
