Mary Jo Foley: Valentine's reorg coming to Microsoft Online Services?

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano

She's been right before, so when Mary Jo Foley's sources say a reorg is coming at Microsoft, listen up.

Foley caught wind of this at least more than a week ago. From the outlines she's reporting, the reorg, among other things, would consolidate more of the online services business under Satya Nadella, who has been in his new post for only 11 months.

Nadella came over from the business division to head research and development for a new group combining both Internet search and the advertising platform. His star seems to be rising, even if search still isn't faring all that well. I've heard from people in his organization that he's gained the respect of the engineers.

Changes also coming in Windows marketing, Foley reports, with Mike Sievert taking a bow.

What do you get for your valentine when he or she has just been ousted? Someone should start a Yahoo group for sweethearts of recently "impacted" tech workers. To be clear, however, there's no indication that the Microsoft Online Services reorg would involve the kind of wholesale job cuts that came down at Yahoo.
