Myerson leaves after 21 years, and nearly three years in what some have called the hardest job at Microsoft - trying to build a device business after the company exited the phone handset business, while charting the future of Windows in a world that is moving away from the client-computing model that it led.

The latest transition builds on earlier efforts to unite engineers who work on software with those that oversee hardware. He announced the formation of two new engineering teams - one focused on experiences and devices, and a second focused on cloud and artificial intelligence (AI).

More practically, the shake-up will see Terry Myerson depart and have his Windows and Devices division merged with Office under Rajesh Jha in what will be the "Experiences and Devices" unit.

Myerson posted his thoughts on the transition away from Microsoft on LinkedIn: "Thank you for 21 years, and onto the next chapter". This new division will also include its teams working on augmented and mixed reality technologies.

Microsoft also plans to continue investing into their AI and Research engineering team, which was established approximately two years ago.

Interestingly, the Windows platform team led by Harv Bhela, Henry Sanders and Michael Fortin joins the Azure team headed by Zander, Nadella says.
