Microsoft Reorganizes And Splits Company Into New Divisions

In an e-mail sent out to employees titled "One Microsoft", CEO Steve Ballmer has detailed the new organizational setup for the entire company. The new division separations and realignments will split the Xbox One product within an Engineering department and more.

The company's divisions will include Marketing, Business Development, Evangelism, Engineering, Research, Financial and more. The interesting part is that the Engineering unit will be comprised of four separate units within it; Operating Systems, Applications and Services, Cloud and Enterprise and Devices and Studio.

With different people heading up the various divisions, and a given division no longer covering all the aspects of its domain, it may have implications on how all the aspects of the Xbox One (OS, games, hardware) will come together seamlessly prior to its launch.
