Microsofts Servers Unit Rudder-Less
Microsoft Corp.'s Servers and Tools division is now Rudder-less, but that does not mean it is without direction.Microsoft Corp.s Servers and Tools division is now Rudder-less, but that does not mean it is without direction. Microsoft has announced more fallout from its recent reorganization, this time naming company veteran Bob Muglia as the replacement to Eric Rudder as senior vice president of the Servers and Tools division. Rudder has received rave reviews from peers for having set the tone that many expect Muglia to follow for the division.
In September, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced the companys reorganization into three divisions and, as part of the changes, announced that Rudder, who had been running the server and tools business, would instead report to Microsoft Chairman and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates on setting the companys overall technical vision.
