REDMOND, Wash., Sept. 20 (UPI) -- U.S. software giant Microsoft Corp. said Tuesday it was reorganizing itself into three divisions.

Each division will have its own president: The Microsoft Platform Products & Services Division will be led by Kevin Johnson and Jim Allchin as co-presidents; Jeff Raikes has been named president of the Microsoft Business Division; and Robbie Bach has been named as president of Microsoft Entertainment & Devices Division.

In addition, the company said Ray Ozzie will expand his role as chief technical officer by assuming responsibility for helping drive its software-based services strategy and execution across all three divisions.

"These changes are designed to align our business groups in a way that will enhance decision-making and speed of execution, as well as help us continue to deliver the types of products and services our customers want most," said Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer at Microsoft.
