On May 18, Microsoft announced that it is moving its Server and Tools unit out from under Platforms and Services to the Microsoft Business Division (MBD). That means Senior Vice President Bob Muglia’s group now falls under MBD President Jeff Raikes’ organization. Muglia will report directly to Raikes as part of the shuffle.
Microsoft also is moving its Developer and Platform Evangelism team under Corporate Vice President Sanjay Parthasarathy to the Server and Tools Business unit under Muglia.
Update 5/21/2007: Gavin Clarke of Info2, a computer-industry analysis firm, added an insightful comment that links to his 5/21/2007 Solving the Microsoft re-org puzzle post. Gavin is more optimistic than I about the future for Servers and Tools as part of the Office (MBD)group.
Update 5/18/2007, 5:00 PM PDT: Mary Jo's source for her report apparently is an e-mail to Microsoft employees first reported by Seattle Post-Intelligencer reporter Todd Bishop and later confirmed by Waggener*Edstrom. Joe Wilcox just posted an analysis of the reorg.
