After Windows Server 2012 RTMs, an organizational shift

Microsoft reorganized the Server and Tools unit of the company this week, after completing the final code of that unit’s marquee products earlier this month.

The changes, first reported by Mary Jo Foley, reflect mostly title changes. Satya Nadella still leads the Server and Tools division.

Azure platform corporate vice president Scott Guthrie is now a CVP of program management within the division. Brad Anderson is also alongside Guthrie as a CVP of program management.

Jason Zander, who was the Visual Studio lead, now heads up development with Bill Laing as CVPs.

Bharat Shah is listed as the corporate vice president of test and engineering systems. Craig Fleischman is now the partner director of test and engineering systems (his old title? Just replace “engineering systems” with “operations”).

The Windows Embedded team remains in the Server and  Tools business unit, but moves under Ted Kummert in the Data Platform Group.

“The purpose of the reorg is to create a consistent engineering structure for improved alignment and faster decision making,” Microsoft told Foley.

Earlier this month, the company hit the RTM milestone for Windows Server 2012.

 Update: Per a statement from Microsoft, corrected explanation that Windows Embedded remains part of the Server and Tools unit, but leadership moves to the Data Platform group.
