Microsoft company reorganises

by Nikola Strahija on September 22nd, 2005 Microsoft has reorganised its company structure into three new divisions, each headed by its own president.

The software giant also announced that Jim Allchin, currently group vice president of platforms at Microsoft, plans to retire at the end of 2006, following the launch of the next version of the Windows client operating system, Windows Vista.

The three new divisions at Microsoft will be the Microsoft Platform Products & Services Division, which will be led by Kevin Johnson and Allchin as co-presidents; the Microsoft Business Division, with Jeff Raikes as president; and the Microsoft Entertainment & Devices Division, with Robbie Bach as president.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, said the restructuring will help the software giant be more agile in the marketplace to provide not only software, but expand Microsoft's services strategy.

-These changes are designed to align our business groups in a way that will enhance decision-making and speed of execution, as well as help us continue to deliver the types of products and services our customers want most, he said. -We see a new era of opportunity to provide greater value to our customers by weaving both software and services into forms that suit their needs.’
