Gupta out as Raikes takes over Microsoft’s United Communications Group

Posted by David Hunter at 10:12 PM ET.

Just a little over a year ago Microsoft merged its Exchange server and Real-Time Collaboration (RTC) groups to form the Unified Communications Group (UCG) under corporate vice president Anoop Gupta and put it in the Business Division (mostly Office), led by division president Jeff Raikes. The UCG is responsible for Microsoft’s well hyped Unified Communications push announced last June. Today, however, Mary Jo Foley reports that Gupta is out and Raikes has personally taken over UCG leadership.

The ostensible reason for the change is that Gupta felt is was time to move on to a new role. His new job is corporate vice president of technology policy and strategy under Microsoft Chief Research and Strategy Officer Craig Mundie.
