Microsoft Pushes Cloud & AI Even Harder

A typical instance of me using Sets

Microsoft is creating a separate division dubbed "Experiences & Devices" that will look after Windows client releases that you see on laptops and devices, first-party apps, Office 365, and Surface hardware. Jha also gets Microsoft's business helping corporations manage their mobile devices and software and a unit that develops new ways to interact with computers, like the HoloLens and XBox Kinect.

"The goal of this team is to instill a unifying product ethos across our end-user experiences and devices", Nadella said.

Microsoft is losing a longtime veteran in Terry Myerson, the executive vice president for its Windows and Devices group, who is bidding farewell to the company as it undergoes a major shakeup in upper management.

Myerson has been at Microsoft for more than two decades. Foley says that the Windows and Devices Group is being split up, and that its former leader Terry Myerson is leaving Microsoft.

SoftBank, Saudi Arabia Announce Massive Solar Power Project
The solar park has to reach its maximum capacity by 2030 and may cost almost 1 billion Dollars per gigawatt. The SoftBank Vision Fund has already invested in companies in the U.S., Europe, and India.

The other part of the Windows team, dealing with the operating system will be merged into a new "experiences and devices" group. In the most recent quarter, its Azure business grew 98 percent and its cloud-based Office 365 offering by 41 percent.

After dropping the bombshell that head of Windows development will be departing from Microsoft, the Windows team manages to keep the wheels of progress greased and running as they seed build 17634 to Skip Ahead Insider participants. This will include what was previously a separate Windows platform team. Going forward, there will be a new "Experiences & Devices" division, headed by Executive VP Rajesh Jha. Every Windows 10 version has at least three different names: the version number (for example, 1803 for upcoming version), a more user-centric name like the Fall Creators Update for the last update, and a branch name that is used internally before the version is released to the public.

Meanwhile, the Guthrie-helmed Cloud + AI Platform team will be responsible for driving "platform coherence and compelling value across all layers of the tech stack starting with the distributed computing fabric (cloud and edge) to AI (infrastructure, runtimes, frameworks, tools and higher-level services around perception, knowledge and cognition)", Nadella wrote.

Nadella is reshaping Microsoft to fit a world where the PC is no longer the center of computing. The feature is now limited to Microsoft's Outlook, Hotmail, Live, and Office 365 services-anyone who uses Gmail, Yahoo, or Exchange Server calendars is going to miss out. Certain parts of Microsoft's AI + Research group are also moving to Guthrie's organization. "We do not yet support searching Exchange Server, Gmail, Yahoo or other IMAP calendars".
