Microsoft Corp on Thursday said Terry Myerson, executive vice president of its Windows and devices business, will be leaving the company amid a major management reshuffle. Rajesh Jha, who is now executive vice president of Microsoft's Office product group, will lead the experiences and devices team, according to Nadella's e-mail.

Rajesh Jha is set to lead the experience and devices teams, which will focus on creating a cohesive end-user experience, no matter what devices users are on. AI + Research, or AI + R in Microsoft for short, grew by 60 percent in the first year - from 5,000 people originally to almost 8,000 people - through hiring and acquisitions, and by bringing aboard additional teams from other parts of the company.

The cloud unit will include Azure, lead by new executive VP Jason Zander who will also oversee a "Windows platform" unit run by the trio of Harv Bhela, Henry Sanders and Michael Fortin.

Myerson has been at Microsoft for more than two decades.

Panos Panay, Microsoft's Surface chief, is now Microsoft's Chief Product Officer for the company's first-party devices like Surface and HoloLens.

Windows: Joe Belfiore will continue leading our Windows experiences and will drive Windows innovation in partnership with the PC and device ecosystem. Microsoft's cloud computing division, Azure, has proved one of its fastest growing businesses, and its Office 365 subscription service is racking up users quicker than many expected. Now that Redstone 4 is in RTM to be released as Spring Creators Update, we will most likely only see new builds for Redstone 5 for the next few weeks.

Microsoft is moving some of Myerson's other former lieutenants to Guthrie's Cloud & AI division.

Mary-Jo Foley at ZDNet believes that the motives behind the reorganization are to do what Nadella has done to Office to the rest of Microsoft.

AI research will continue to live in a separate group under Harry Shum, and Microsoft promised there would be a fair amount of coordination between the revamped cloud and AI groups.

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. This will include what was previously a separate Windows platform team. Preview Build 17634 boasts the usual bug fixes, performance improvements, and new issues as other pre-release software, but it also expands Windows' search and Cortana Show Me tools.
