Terry Myerson - EVP of Microsoft, Is Leaving As The Company Re-organizes

Microsoft Services Agreement issues

Microsoft released a new build to Fast ring members of the Windows Insider Program.

The shuffle moves work on Windows to the same team handling Microsoft's Azure cloud software.

Terry Myerson - executive vice president for the Windows and Devices group who joined Microsoft 21 years ago - is leaving the firm, according to the statement. The WDG is no more and the group is being split into "Experiences and Devices", which will be led by Rajesh Jha, Executive VP of Microsoft. Last year, Microsoft laid the groundwork created to make Windows part of a recurring subscription business via Microsoft 365, which is a bundle of Windows 10, Office 365, and elements of the Enterprise Security + Mobility service.

"I see this first as cloud and services becoming even more important and that AI is an integral part of real products", said Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy. Microsoft is planning to allow PWAs in the company's Microsoft Store, and Twitter is the first major example. Windows, which also includes Surface and Xbox revenues grew by just 2% in the company's most recent quarter.

As of February 2018, Windows 10 accounted for 48% of the OS install base, Microsoft reported. (Microsoft officials have predicted the company could have two-thirds of its Office users in the cloud by its fiscal 2019.) Now, it's trying to do something similar for Windows with Microsoft 365: Create a bundle of cloud services anchored by Windows 10 that will provide the company with a recurring revenue stream.

Amazon Stock Drops After Trump Tweet
Still, White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah shot down the notion that Trump's criticism was part of a personal grudge. Years ago, when Amazon had few warehouses, it was able to get a competitive advantage by not charging sales tax .

"Having a chief product officer is an indication that the company is leaning more into hardware products, not backing off", he told SiliconANGLE.

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. Joe Belfiore will remain as Windows experiences leader, Kudo Tsunoda will remain as new experiences and technology leader, and Brad Anderson will continue to lead Windows Enterprise.

This has pushed Microsoft to focus on the Internet cloud, Artificial Intelligence, and services for connected "Internet of Things" devices.

The Cloud and AI team will focus on cloud and artificial intelligence infrastructure, services and knowledge. Alex and team will take guidance on all AI-related areas from Harry Shum and work very closely with AI + Research (AI+R).

On Thursday, Nadella unveiled his latest overhaul of Microsoft's organizational structure with several key themes emerging from the changes.
