Windows 7: Windows Server engineering team moved into Windows and Devices Group

Windows Server engineering team moved into Windows and Devices Group

Microsoft is moving the engineering team responsible for Windows Server to the Windows and Devices Group, resulting in all versions of Windows at the company now being part of the same unit.

Executive Vice President Scott Guthrie will continue to head up the remaining Cloud and Enterprise unit and Executive Vice President Terry Myerson now will continue to run the expanded Windows and Devices Group.

Both the Windows Server engineering and the Remote Desktop Services engineering teams will be part of Myerson's organization, my sources are saying. But Mike Neil, who currently oversees Windows Server engineering, and Brad Anderson, who is responsible for Remote Desktop Services, are staying with the Cloud & Enterprise team, I am hearing, and continuing to head up the other teams they currently lead.

I asked Microsoft about the moves, which I was tipped to by sources. A spokesperson confirmed with the following statement:

As we advance our goal to build operating systems that provide the best experiences from the smallest IoT devices to the largest scale server deployments in public and private clouds, the Windows Server team will move from the Cloud + Enterprise Group to the Windows and Devices Group. These groups already work closely together and we believe this move will help us bring even more value to our customers as we deliver our most cloud-ready server OS with the Windows Server 2016 launch this fall.
