Microsoft combines Windows Server and Azure organizations

Posted by David Hunter at 8:19 PM ET.

Microsoft today announced that the Azure (cloud services) group is leaving Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie’s adtech team for the mainline product organization. Azure is being combined with the Windows Server & Solutions Group run by Bill Laing to form the Server & Cloud Division (SCD) under Senior Vice President Amitabh Srivastava reporting to Bob Muglia, the president of Microsoft’s Server and Tools business. If  your scorecard is getting a little crowded with all the crossouts and connecting lines, Mary Jo Foley persuaded a Microsoft spokesman to provide the current Server and Tools lineup:

1. Business Online Services Division (led by David Thompson) (*NOTE: development only)
2. Business Platform Division (led by Ted Kummert)
3. Developer Division (led by S. Somagasar)
4. Identity and Security Division (led by Lee Nackman)
5. Management and Services Division (led by Brad Anderson)
6. Developer and Platform Evangelism (DPE, led by Walid Abu-Hadba)
7. Server and Tools Marketing Group (STMG, led by Robert Wahbe)
8. Server and Cloud Division (led by Amitabh Srivastava)

Microsoft announces Laing to head Server Division

Posted by David Hunter at 10:49 AM ET.

In continuing fallout from last September’s big Microsoft reorganization, Bill Laing has been named as the new head of Microsoft’s Server Division replacing Bob Muglia who moved up to head of Server & Tools in October. There’s a press Q&A with Laing here. If all this organization chart explanation seems somewhat obscure, please recall that servers are one of Microsoft’s few serious short term growth areas.
