Bob Muglia, president of the servers and tools business at Microsoft, have been forced to step down after 23 years at the company. According to Computerworld and IDG News Service, Steve Ballmer wanted to accelerate the move into the cloud, and felt that Muglia was not the right person.
According to DailyTech, the division run by Muglia have been successful, with $5.5 billion in profits for 2010.
So obviously Steve Ballmer want to push Azure even harder, and Bob Muglia have been more cautious. Time will only tell what the right choice was.
