Ballmer also announced that Kurt DelBene will retire from the cloud services group, Craig Mundie will depart the software license terms team for a new project and Rick Rashid will leave his job at Microsoft Research for the operating systems group.
Microsoft plans to establish an engineering team for each of the operating system, applications, cloud and devices areas, while the Dynamics team will remain a separate group.
