Microsoft's new organization puts "datacenter" four times and "supply chain" three times in Steve Ballmer's memo
Microsoft's Steve Ballmer sent out a memo to the company and rest of the world on a new organization for innovation, speed, and efficiency. Which may be kind of obvious. Who wants to enable legacy, slow, and wasteful organizations. :-)
Being an a data center guy, Industrial Engineer, and ex-Microsoft I was curious where data centers showed up and saw "supply chain" show up three times.
Datacenter shows up 4 times. The correct way to spell data centers is datacenter, but almost no one does.
The Microsoft data center group used to report to Qi Lu and will now report to Satya Nadella. Qi Lu is focused on apps and services.
Applications and Services Engineering Group. Qi Lu will lead broad applications and services core technologies in productivity, communication, search and other information categories
Supply chain shows up three times.
With Microsoft showing up with so much interest in supply chain I wonder if they'll start recruiting amazon.com supply chain folks. Wal-mart people have already joined Microsoft including COO Kevin Turner.
