The reorganization Microsoft Corp has announced represents the most sweeping re-structuring of the world's largest software company since 2008. The move is designed to better align Microsoft's operations, with Chief Executive Steve Ballmer's stated goal of becoming a "devices and services" company. Microsoft's stronghold of providing software for PCs is under threat as consumers and corporations increasingly turn to mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets, and to Web-based software.

Microsoft Corp said it will deliver multiple devices and services as a single company, rather than a collection of separate divisions, after completing its first major overhaul in five years. less
