Windows bends for Azure, Terry Myerson says soodbye to Microsoft

That new team will be headed by Scott Guthrie, who's now in charge of Microsoft's Azure cloud platform.

Microsoft's Terry Myerson who has been leading Microsoft's efforts in transforming Windows from a slow to update OS into a more regularly updated product to keep Windows fresh is out after 21 years of service.

Currently, shares of Microsoft have been positive, rising by almost 0.89%, and seem to be steadily climbing. Its cloud and subscription businesses are growing, however.

"It also looks as if AI and cloud are interdependent, which makes ideal sense as the cloud is where most of the data is", Moorhead commented.

The first new feature of Preview Build 17634 is the addition of search tools to Windows 10's native Calendar app.

Ensuring that Microsoft's AI efforts are undertaken in a responsible manner, the company's internal AI and Ethics in Engineering and Research (AETHER) Committee, established by Shum and Brad Smith, Microsoft's president and chief legal officer, will shape policies regarding the potent technology at the company. Both these managers report to Jha.

The cloud unit under Guthrie is also gaining some of the company's artificial intelligence work most closely tied to corporate customers.

Part of the reshuffle includes the departure of long-time Microsoft executive Terry Myerson, who leads the current Windows and Devices group.

No layoffs are expected as part of the reorganization.

AI Perception & Mixed Reality (MR): Alex Kipman will lead this new team, which brings together all our speech, vision, MR and additional perception capabilities into one team.

The core operating system group will join "cloud and AI" group, which will oversee all the company's software platforms, from the Azure cloud service to its software for the internet of things.

Microsoft has been my work, my team, and my objective for 21 years. Prior to those roles, Myerson ran Windows Phone and the Exchange email server. Within this engineering team, Jason Zander will serve as executive vice president of Azure. The executive is the newly appointed head of the company's Azure public cloud.
