Microsoft last month announced a major reorganization effort that saw a shakeup in its team structure, along with the departure of long-time Windows chief Terry Myerson. According to a new report, however, Microsoft isn't quite done making some moves.
As part of the reorganization, Microsoft Corporate Vice President Joe Belfiore was made the leader of the Windows client experiences team under the purview of Rajesh Jha, who leads the Experiences & Devices engineering group. This week, ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley reports, other groups related to education, OneNote, and To-Do came under Belfiore's wing. From ZDNet:
But yesterday, April 16, a few other non-Windows-specific teams were moved under Belfiore, according to several sources who requested anonymity. Belfiore now also oversees Education, OneNote and Wunderlist/To-Do. Education, OneNote and Wunderlist have been run as a group for the past couple of years by Corporate Vice President Eran Megiddo.
The move could signal a continued strategy by Microsoft to improve interoperability between Windows and the company's mobile apps with features like Continue on PC.
Additionally, Foley reports that the consumer Skype team has been moved under Outlook.
Overall, the reorganization announced last month was a signal that Microsoft is repositioning itself to focus on the cloud, AI, and edge computing going forward. That effort involved some major moves, and its possible we could continue to see smaller shifts like this trickle out over the coming weeks or months.
