Microsoft Chief Nadella Creates Two Divisions In Another Shake-Up

A few years ago when Satya Nadella first took over Microsoft, the company went through a major internal shakeup and formed the Windows and Devices Group, just ahead of the launch for Windows 10. Executive vice president Scott Guthrie will head the new A.I. and cloud team, Nadella said.

Rajesh Jha, executive vice president of Microsoft Office, will lead the Experiences & Devices unit, which is home to Windows.

Experiences & Devices will cover Windows, Office 365, new technology, and enterprise management.

With today's moves, Microsoft is not throwing in the towel on Windows or its Surface line. Kudo Tsunoda is continuing to spearhead the NEXT (New Experiences and Technology) business, which had its own reorg earlier this year. Both these managers report to Jha.
