According to AllThingsD, Steve Ballmer, Microsoft Chief Executive, is expected to announce a major and long awaited restructuring at Microsoft as early as Thursday.
It is likely that Ballmer will realign the company around devices and services (software) in both the business and consumer sectors. After writing the note stating, “this is really a new era for our company.”, Ballmer might have already laid the groundwork for this transition.
These major changes are expected to put the President of Skype, Tony Bates, in charge of relationships with software developers, according to a Bloomberg report last week. Windows head, Julie Larson-Green, is expected to manage the hardware engineering for all of the devices through out the entire company. This position was considered to former Microsoft gaming chief, Don Mattrick, before he left the company last week to take over Zynga.
The Windows OS engineering is said to be given to Windows Phone software head Terry Myerson. Satya Nadella, the current head of the server side of the business, will control a division centralized in cloud computing and other enterprise products. According to Bloomberg’s sources, Qi Lu, who currently runs the online group, would now manage an engineering unit in charge of Bing as well as Office and Skype.
