One team will focus on the cloud and AI, the other on what it calls "experiences and devices".

Nadella said that with this change comes transition, and he revealed that Terry Myerson is leaving Microsoft. Nadella has selected Rajesh Jha, executive vice president of the Office 365 group, to lead it.

"He thanks the company that he called "[his] work, [his] team, and [his] objective for 21 years" and plans to "now take some time to train for a half Ironman, learn to play the piano or guitar...[learn] more about genomics and robotics" and spend more quality time with his wife and kids. The Cloud + AI Platform team will be led by Scott Guthrie, executive vice president, who will expand his current responsibilities. Joe Belfiore will continue to lead the Windows group, while Panos Panay will take on the role of chief product officer for Devices.

Myerson's Windows and Devices Group (WDG) is being broken up.

Under the new organization, it appears that the split will continue but in a more logical fashion: the core operating system platform will all be managed under Zander, while user interface, online services, applications, and showcase hardware such as Surface and Surface Hub, will be under Jha.

In describing today's reorg, Nadella said the moves are part of Microsoft's goal to focus on the "intelligent cloud and the intelligent edge". Eric Boyd is taking the reins of AI Cognitive Services & Platform, another new faction under Guthrie's purview. The team will be zeroed in on Microsoft's mobile offerings, Windows, and its Microsoft 365 productivity suite for the most part. Two early tasks will be to detect whether AI systems have accidentally incorporated biased points of view and to make sure all Microsoft's efforts abide by the EU's new General Data Protection Regulation.

They join the existing Microsoft AI & Research group, led by research chief Harry Shum, to form three massive engineering groups inside the Redmond tech giant.
