As part of a reorg, Microsoft just moved a team from its Azure cloud business into the organization responsible for Windows, Surface devices, and Microsoft 365. Microsoft 365 is the bundle of business applications that includes the Office 365 productivity suite, collaboration tools like OneDrive and SharePoint, the Microsoft Teams chat app, and even the Windows 10 operating system itself. The Microsoft 365 bundle represents a huge portion of Microsoft's catalogue of cloud software — an area where it has a clear advantage in the cloud wars over rivals like Amazon Web Services and Google's G Suite. Below are the 22 power players behind Microsoft 365. Click here to read more BI Prime stories. Microsoft just bolstered the organization responsible for Windows, Surface devices, and its Microsoft 365 bundle of business applications with some internal cloud talent. The company recently relocated a team from its Azure cloud business to this organization, known as "experiences and devices," according to longtime Microsoft pundit Brad Sams, writing for Petri.com, "to help the Windows/Surface teams build more cohesive experiences that the company hopes customers will love and push the Surface team to create better products as well." The experiences and devices team is responsible for a big part of Microsoft's business. Microsoft 365, for example, is the company's a bundle of business apps, introduced in 2017, that includes Office 365 – cloud-based versions of the company's flagship productivity applications such as Word and Excel – collaboration tools like OneDrive and SharePoint, the Microsoft Teams chat app, and even the Windows 10 operating system itself. The strategy, the company has said, is to make it easier for customers to adopt the best of Microsoft, all at once. The latest changes come after the company earlier this year notified employees about a significant reorganization, which took effect Feb. 25, affecting the Windows experience and devices teams, according to an internal memo obtained by Business Insider.  That represents a big chunk of Microsoft's lineup of cloud software products, an area where it has a clear advantage in the cloud wars with Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud. AWS doesn't have a cloud software business to speak of, while Google's G Suite only accounts for a sliver of the market compared with the juggernaut that is Microsoft Office. United under the banner of Microsoft 365, these power players are helping the company in "moving closer toward a comprehensive enterprise application ecosystem," Nucleus Research analyst Andrew MacMillen recently told Business Insider. Here are the 21 power players behind Microsoft 365:Rajesh Jha, executive VP of Experiences & Devices Rajesh Jha leads Microsoft's Experiences and Devices group. Jha's purview includes Windows client, Office Product Group, the New Experiences and Technology team (charged with finding new ways to engage Microsoft customers) and Enterprise Mobility and Management (which runs Windows Enterprise deployment and management). Jha was the one who notified Microsoft employees about the big reorganization in early February. Jha has been on Microsoft's leadership team since 2006, and has worked at Microsoft since he finished graduate school in 2000. Panos Panay, chief product officer Panos Panay now runs the Windows + Devices Team created through the reorganization. As Jha explained it, the new team "will drive end-to-end people centered innovation including the entire Windows ecosystem," he said in the email to employees. "The joining of these teams will streamline the decision-making process to help us deliver the best device experience from silicon through the OS for our customers on OEM and Surface Devices." Panay is generally considered the driving force behind Microsoft's line of Surface products. Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365 Kirk Koenigsbauer is the corporate vice president responsible for product marketing and management for Microsoft 365. Koenigsbauer's purview includes the overall Microsoft 365 bundle, Office 365, Windows 10 Enterprise, and the IT security and management tool Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS). Koenigsbauer originally started working at Microsoft in 1992, but left in 1998 and did a three-year stint at Amazon. He rejoined Microsoft in 2002 as a corporate vice president. Koenigsbauer in 2015 was notably the first Microsoft executive ever to grace the stage at an Apple product event.  Now that the reorg has taken effect, Koenigsbauer will report directly to Jha as the chief operating officer for the Experience and Devices group. Jared Spataro, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365 Jared Spataro runs Microsoft 365 marketing, which according to Microsoft includes business management, product marketing and go-to-market programs for the suite of applications. Spataro was tasked with public communications related to Microsoft ending support Windows 7 its operating system used on millions of PCs since its launch in 2009, and encouraged users to upgrade to Windows 10 or buy new PCs that come preinstalled with it.  The successful upgrade push helped make Microsoft's most recent quarter the best for its Windows business in terms of growth since CEO Satya Nadella took over in 2014. Spataro joined Microsoft in 2006 as a director for Microsoft's SharePoint collaboration platform.   Brian MacDonald, corporate vice president of Microsoft Teams Brian MacDonald is retiring from Microsoft once the reorg goes into place — but in the interim, he's the corporate vice president of the Microsoft Teams chat app.  MacDonald is a legend within Microsoft, known as the "father of Outlook," the company's flagship email product. He led Microsoft's push to create Teams, the fast-growing chat app, by taking a small group of engineers to his fruit plantation in Maui to hack it together. "In-between writing lines of code, the team spent their days hiking, riding tractors, picking food from the land, all to inspire new ways of thinking about the essence of teamwork, how technology can take collaboration to new levels, and what Microsoft could uniquely offer," according to Microsoft. "By the end, they left with the crystallizing idea that they wanted to build a service that made it frictionless for individuals and teams to create, collaborate and 'work in the open.'" Teams has more than 20 million daily active users, according to Microsoft – more than rival Slack, although Slack has taken issue with Microsoft's accounting since Teams comes bundled with Microsoft 365.   Jeff Teper, corporate vice president of Office 365 Jeff Teper is corporate vice president of Microsoft's Office 365 cloud-based suite of productivity tools. He'll also take over Microsoft Teams chat app when MacDonald retires. Teper runs design, product and engineering for products including core Office applications such as Word and Excel, OneDrive file storage system and collaboration platform SharePoint. Teper joined Microsoft in 1992 and is best known as a co-creator of Microsoft SharePoint, which is now an industry-standard way for teams to share files and work with each other.   Perry Clarke, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365 Perry Clarke is the Microsoft 365 corporate vice president responsible for the core platform and artificial intelligence experience. He's a Microsoft distinguished engineer who joined the company after working on neutron scattering work at the experimental reactor at Riso Lab in Denmark. Clarke's purview includes Microsoft's bot framework and cognitive services, which is a collection of AI tools for vision, speech, language, knowledge and search; Microsoft Search, a search tool for businesses within Microsoft 365; AI intelligence throughout Microsoft 365; and the Intelligent Office Graph, which helps track information as it moves across Office 365. Jon Tinter, corporate vice president of business development for Microsoft 365 & Search, Ads, and News Jon Tinter is the corporate vice president of business development for Microsoft 365 & Search, Ads, and News. The 13-year Microsoft veteran runs strategy for products including Microsoft 365 when it comes to growth, mergers and acquisitions, commercial partnerships and strategic investments. Tinter's strategic leadership also includes products such as Windows, Surface devices, search products like Bing and Microsoft Search, plus Microsoft News and the company's digital advertising business. Brad Anderson, corporate vice president of Microsoft Commercial Management Experiences Brad Anderson is corporate vice president of Microsoft Commercial Management Experiences, which means he runs the team responsible for Microsoft 365 Modern Workplace products for businesses.  Specifically, Anderson oversees engineering and strategic leadership for security platform Enterprise Mobility + Security – a key part of Microsoft 365– and the Microsoft product for managing large groups of computers running Windows, called System Center Configuration Manager. Anderson's team include engineers who work on Microsoft 365 customer deployment and usage, Windows commercial products, management and security of PCs and mobile devices.  Emma Williams, corporate vice president of Microsoft Office Vertical Solutions As Microsoft Office Vertical Solutions corporate vice president, Emma Williams runs Office 365 solutions for industry verticals including health care, financial services, retail, manufacturing, and government. One of the biggest changes Satya Nadella has made at Microsoft is shifting the company from a focus on making general-purpose products to ones that can be tuned for specific industries, a Microsoft executive recently told Business Insider. Williams – a 16-year veteran of Microsoft – helps make that happen.  Now that the reorg has taken effect, Williams will report directly to Jha as a member of the Experiences and Devices leadership group.   Jon Friedman, corporate vice president of Microsoft Design & Research Jon Friedman is corporate vice president of Microsoft Design & Research, a position he describes on his LinkedIn profile as "the chief designer of Microsoft Office products." Friedman – responsible for the last major redesign of Microsoft Office – leads a team of 250 employees who research and design Microsoft products, including within Microsoft 365. Sumit Chauhan, corporate vice president of Microsoft Office Engineering Sumit Chauhan is Microsoft's Office Engineering corporate vice president, meaning she runs engineering for flagship products including Word and PowerPoint across mobile, web and desktop.  Chauhan's team is also responsible for infusing artificial intelligence into Microsoft's Office 365 cloud-based suite of productivity tools. Chauhan is a 24-year veteran of Microsoft who joined the company as a principal software developer in 1996.    Jaime Teevan, chief scientist of Microsoft Experiences & Devices Jamie Teevan is the chief scientist for Microsoft Devices and Experiences, which means she's the brains behind Microsoft's productivity innovations. She works with Microsoft's research team to get experts who can help contribute to the company's updates in productivity — across software and devices.  She has been at Microsoft since 2006 and was previously a technical advisor to CEO Satya Nadella and a principal researcher at Microsoft Research AI, where she led the productivity team.  She is an award-winning and leading computer scientist in her field, known particularly for her research on human-computer interaction and information retrieval and personalized search.      Tara Roth, corporate vice president of Office Customer Success Engineering (CSE) Tara Roth heads up the Office Customer Success Engineering team and looks at a few areas all linked to how Microsoft interacts with its customers. Her team is in charge of customer support, the help pages, and anything else that helps customers use Microsoft products. Her team is a key part of Microsoft's process for releasing new products and answering customer questions and concerns. Roth has been at Microsoft for 27 years, starting as an engineer in 1992.    Ales Holecek, corporate vice president of Office Engineering Ales Holecek is the corporate vice president of the engineering team that builds Microsoft Office applications. His team helps deliver the "modern office experience" to Microsoft customers.  Prior to joining the Office team, Holecek worked on the Windows Developer Ecosystem and Platform team, helping third party developers build on top of the Windows platform. As part of that he designed and built the Universal Windows Platform, an ambitious push to unify app development across Windows 10 on PCs, tablets, and the Xbox One gaming console. He's been at Microsoft since 2004. Now that the reorg has taken effect, Holecek and Joe Belfiore will lead Microsoft's Office and Office Experience Group team as "a product/engineering duo." Guarav Sareen, corporate vice president of Communication & Time Management Guarav Sareen leads the Communications and Time Management organization at Microsoft, overseeing engineering and product teams for Outlook, Skype and the Yammer corporate social network. Prior to that, he led the engineering team for Outlook.  Soon after Sareen joined Microsoft in 2001, he became of the engineers that helped build the Bing search engine. He continued to develop and grow Bing until 2016, when he switched gears to lead Outlook.       Harvinder Bhela, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365 Security & Compliance Harvinder Bhela is in charge of product, engineering and research for Microsoft's security and compliance business. His team develops security and compliance tools that help Microsoft 365 customers make sure their employees are working safely and securely, while also integrating with other products. On his LinkedIn, Bhela calls the security and compliance "perhaps one of the largest growth engines for the M365 business," given that its a market worth over $50 billion per year.  Bhela has worked at Microsoft for 23 years, previously working in the Exchange, Outlook/Outlook.com, Office and Windows divisions.  Hayete Gallot, vice president of Modern Workplace WCB Hayete Gallot runs the sales team for the Modern Workplace Solutions team, helping to get Microsoft products in the hands of more businesses, and similarly to help those companies through their digital transformation.  She's got experience working both for the software and hardware divisions at Microsoft. Prior to her current role, she led the team responsible for developing new business models for Office products. Before that, she played a key role in developing Microsoft's Surface tablet division into a multi-billion-dollar business.      Rob Lefferts, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365 Security & Compliance Rob Lefferts is in charge of making sure Microsoft 365 has simple and clear security for users across all its products. Prior to this role, he led the Windows Enterprise & Security team, and was responsible for the significant security upgrades in Windows 10. He's been at the company for 22 years, and has played a key role in developing many of Microsoft's technologies, and was a major driver in the creation of the Microsoft 365 strategy in the first place.   Joy Chik, corporate vice president of Microsoft Identity, Cloud & Enterprise Joy Chik is the corporate vice president for the Identity division in Microsoft's Cloud + AI group. She's responsible for a variety of cloud and identity management products, including Active Directory, the backbone of login security for Windows and other Microsoft products. Chik's role is key to every product Microsoft makes. Whenever any Microsoft product asks you to log in — from the Xbox games console to the Office 365 suite — chances are pretty good that it's using technology from Chik's team at some layer. Chik has been at the company for 22 years, starting as a software design engineer in 1998. Bob Davis, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365 & Security Bob Davis is responsible for ensuring Microsoft customers across all industries (commercial, education, and public sector) are satisfied with the products. In his role he is in charge of the engineering and commercial & partner teams that help get a product ready for the market. Davis helped to build the first version of Office 365, Microsoft's cloud-based subscription suite of productivity tools. He joined the company in 1993 and helped it through its transition to the cloud computing era.  Joe Belfiore, corporate vice president of Essential Products Group (EPIC) Joe Belfiore leads the engineering team that is responsible for Windows 10 and Microsoft's other "essential products" including Microsoft Edge, Microsoft News, OneNote, Education products, and mobile applications for iOS and Android.  Amid an executive shuffle in the division, Belfiore will soon switch over the the Office side of the company, to lead Microsoft's Office and Office experience group with Ales Holecek "as a product/engineering duo."  Since joining Microsoft in 1990, Belfiore has had a crucial role in building some of the most significant features for the Windows platform. That includes things like the Start Button in Windows 10 and the Cortana digital assistant.  He's been at Microsoft since 2004. Now that the reorg has taken effect, Belfiore and Ales Holecek will lead Microsoft's Office and Office Experience Group team as "a product/engineering duo."
Photo by Dante D’Orazio / The Verge Microsoft is making some significant changes to the way it runs its Windows organization this week, signaling a renewed focus on the operating system that made its name. The software giant placed Surface chief Panos Panay in charge of Windows earlier this year, and is now reshuffling parts of that team. It follows Microsoft’s decision to slice Windows into two parts more than two years ago after the departure of former Windows chief Terry Myerson. Microsoft moved core Windows development to a cloud and AI team (Azure), and created a new group to work on Windows 10 “experiences” like apps, the Start menu, and new features. Now, Microsoft is moving parts of Windows development back under Panos Panay’s control. Specifically, that means the... Continue reading…
The dual-screen device was originally set to launch in 'holiday 2020'
Perhaps rumors of its delay were slightly exaggerated. Or perhaps Microsoft is just trying to drum up hype considering Samsung’s big event in two weeks. Either way, it definitely doesn’t sound like a coincidence that three of Microsoft’s top brass teased the Surface Duo in the span of a few days, just as the device has reportedly passed some certification … Continue reading
In late June, Microsoft said it would permanently close its chain of 82 retail stores after temporarily shuttering them in March because of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s an ignominious end to a failed experiment and attempt by Microsoft to try and build some of same cachet as the Apple Store.But Microsoft’s largely humdrum hardware never inspired the same devotion as Apple’s devices. And Microsoft could never outmarket Apple — the Microsoft Store never came up with the equivalent of the Genius Bar, and the stores were never destinations in and of themselves like Apple Stores have been.To read this article in full, please click here
Microsoft will release a production-quality version of its recast Edge browser Jan. 15, or in just over 10 weeks.The build -- the label usually applies to finished code that may still harbor some bugs -- has been marked 79.0.309.11 and issued as the latest Beta for Windows and macOS.Microsoft first broached the idea of remaking Edge in December 2018, when it announced it was discarding its own rendering and JavaScript engines -- the technologies at the core of any browser -- and instead adopting those built by the Chromium project, the open-source effort led by Google that fuels Chrome.With that declaration, Microsoft gave up on building a modern browser -- one that would replace the ancient and obsolete Internet Explorer (IE) -- and follow in the footsteps of such niche applications as Opera and Brave.Chrome 80, built upon the same-numbered version of Chromium, will debut at the end of January (Jan. 28, to be exact) or early the next month (Feb. 4).Those dates would seem far too close to Microsoft's Jan. 15 to be used for the first Edge upgrade.
Microsoft this week pushed the "full-Chromium" Edge one step closer to a production release with the launch Tuesday of a Beta build for macOS and all supported editions of Windows, including 7 and 10."Beta is the third and final preview channel which will come online before launch," wrote Joe Belfiore, a top Windows executive, in an Aug. 20 post to a company blog."Beta represents the most stable preview channel, as features are added to Beta only after they have cleared quality testing in first the Canary channel and then the Dev channel."Like Chrome, which is also built from the technologies created by the open-source Chromium project, Edge will eventually come in four flavors: Canary, Dev, Beta and Stable.Other than Canary, which is updated nightly, each build is more polished and more stable than its predecessor; each Dev and Beta build is maintained for about six weeks before its code is promoted to the next in line.The code currently in Dev 78 will move from there to Beta early next month, then from Beta to Stable 78 around Oct. 22.
Today, Microsoft is releasing a stable beta of the new Chromium-based version of Edge, its first-party browser intended to rival Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.Developer and Canary builds of the browser have been available for months, but we’re told this beta is a more a polished version intended for wider release.The latest beta will be available for everything Windows 7 and up, including Windows 10.A Mac version, based on the same underlying code, is launching simultaneously.I’ve used the developer build of the Mac version off and on for months and have been impressed with its stability—especially compared to some of the other betas I’ve loaded up on my devices lately.All new versions of Edge use the same Blink and V8 engines incorporated by Google Chrome and are based on the same Chromium codebase.
Microsoft released the first beta version of its overhauled Edge web browser Tuesday -- and it wants you to help squash its bugs to smooth the way for the mainstream release in coming months.Until now, Microsoft had only released relatively unpolished Canary and dev versions that are updated rapidly with the latest changes but that aren't as well tested.After that, perhaps after a few months, Microsoft will swap out the old Edge so all Windows 10 users get the new Chromium version.You might be happy with Chrome or whatever other browser you're using, but Microsoft has a lot of customers, and there's significant interest in the new Chromium-based Edge.Safari, Firefox, Brave and other browsers also are seeking to stand out from Chrome with more assertive stances to protect you from websites and advertisers seeking to track your online behavior.Microsoft is also increasing its efforts to get businesses to start testing the new Edge, Belfiore added.
Microsoft is making a beta version of its Chromium Edge browser available to download today.The Microsoft Edge beta will be available for all supported versions of Windows and macOS, and the software maker is encouraging businesses and regular enthusiasts to take a closer look at the new browser.So far, there have been more than 1 million downloads of preview builds of Edge, and Microsoft says it has received more than 140,000 individual pieces of feedback.“Beta represents the most stable preview channel, as features are added to Beta only after they have cleared quality testing in first the Canary channel and then the Dev channel,” explains Joe Belfiore, CVP of Microsoft’s Windows Experiences.“Major version updates can be expected roughly every six weeks, alongside periodic minor updates for bug fixes and security.”The beta milestone is important for Microsoft as the company now considers this version of the browser “ready for everyday use.” Microsoft is backing this up with a bug bounty security program for this new version of Edge, with rewards of up to $15,000 for security researchers who discover vulnerabilities.
Seattle Sounders FC is getting a lot of new owners today as part of a joint ownership group spearheaded by former Microsoft executive Terry Myerson.Eleven families with connections to the Seattle area have teamed up to form a new ownership group for the Sounders soccer club, and they include some big names.Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and his wife Anu Nadella are part of the ownership group, alongside Joe Belfiore, CVP of experiences and devices at Microsoft, and his wife Kristina Belfiore.Seattle-born rapper Macklemore and his wife Tricia Davis are also joining the group.Hip-hop artist Macklemore and wife Tricia DavisMicrosoft’s Joe Belfiore and wife Kristina Belfiore
Another milestone was reached today in the long, drawn-out death of Windows Phone: Microsoft has stopped distributing app updates to the dozen or so Windows Phone 8.x devices not already consigned to the recyclers.To be fair, mainstream support for Windows Phone 8.1 was switched off almost two years ago, on 11 July 2017, and Microsoft really cannot be bothered to let developers who are still supporting apps on the platform use its store to distribute updates.The company had already axed the ability for developers to submit new apps for the doomed platform at the end of October last year.Today brings the Windows 8.x saga to an end – with developers no longer able to shovel out updates ... to say there'll be no more updates.Windows Phone developers, today is your last chance to submit an update for your apps and add a banner/message explaining to wp8/wp8.1 users that you won't be able to update the app anymore starting Monday.— Rudy Huyn (@RudyHuyn) June 29, 2019
Mac users who are tired of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari just got a new (if not totally official) way to browse the web.Monday evening, a Twitter user named h0x0d posted download links for developer builds of the macOS version of Microsoft’s Edge browser, The Verge reports.Microsoft Edge for Mac Canary 76.0.151.0 https://t.co/T35gz9kpAIThe links are still live, so you can download Edge onto your Mac rather easily.The browser defaults to a white user interface, but navigating to edge://flags and enabling Microsoft Edge Themes will turn on a dark mode significantly more attractive than Chrome’s (but still not quite as native looking as Safari).And just like the Chromium-based Edge beta currently available on Windows 10, you can download Chrome-based extensions and sideload them into Edge.

It is an alliance that probably would have been impossible before Satya Nadella took over as ceo.Now, Microsoft has, at utvecklarkonferensen Build, shown off its new version of the marginalised browser Edge.– What we hope will happen is that we get an engineering collaboration on web standards and webbimplementationer that works well on Windows devices.And with the differentiation, there is plenty of room for competition, " says Joe Belfiore, a Microsoft executive, in an interview with The Verge.A hearty change of Edge has been a couple of requests from Microsoft's highest peak in several years.because of The low market share the browser has developer often been dropped, with the consequence that many sites are not optimized for the Edge.
Microsoft may be closer to its first Mac browser in 14 years."We also expect this work to enable us to bring Microsoft Edge to other platforms like macOS," Joe Belfiore said last December, when he announced the move to a Chromium-based engine for the Edge browser."Improving the web-platform experience for both end users and developers requires that the web platform and the browser be consistently available to as many devices as possible."Dialogue boxes touting support for macOS ("10.12 and above") have been spotted.The company has also invited interest in ports of Edge-on-Chrome for Windows 8.1, Windows 8, and Windows 7.Edge is tightly integrated with Windows 10, allowing Microsoft to claim bragging rights over speed and power consumption.
[ Further reading: Google's Chromium browser explained ]"In these first builds we are very much focused on the fundamentals and have not yet included a wide range of feature and language support that will come later," cautioned Joe Belfiore, a company executive, in an April 8 post to a company blog.The reworked browser can be downloaded from Microsoft's Edge Insider website in either "Canary" or "Dev" form.Those are Chromium/Chrome terms that describe two of the four versions - Canary, Dev, Beta and Stable - in the progressively more reliable and polished sequence of development.Edge's Stable build will be what is issued to Windows 10 users not participating in the testing regimen.Currently, Google's version 74 is in beta - it has been since March 21 - and will ship as stable on April 23.
"In these first builds we are very much focused on the fundamentals and have not yet included a wide range of feature and language support that will come later," said Joe Belfiore, Microsoft's corporate vice president for Windows, in a blog post Monday."You'll start to see differences from the current Microsoft Edge including subtle design finishes, support for a broader selection of extensions and the ability to manage your sign-in profile."For years, Microsoft had tried to reclaim some of its browser power by stripping away the legacy technology that hobbled Internet Explorer and releasing the modernized Edge instead.But it never caught on widely, and in December, Microsoft announced a plan to rebuild Edge on Chromium, the open-source underpinnings of Chrome that's also used in several other browsers.Using Google's software gives access to a mature and frequently updated software project while ensuring websites aren't likely to suffer from incompatibility problems.However, it also means Google's already formidable power over the web -- deciding in effect which technologies are supported and which aren't -- is that much stronger.
