Has Microsoft ever faced so many competitive challenges? SaaS providers are nipping away its traditional desktop software business, Apple and Google forced Microsoft to reset its mobile strategy and Google continues to eat the company’s lunch on the search side.
Among developments on the plus side of the ledger, Office is still by far the most used desktop software suite in the enterprise and the company’s SharePoint collaboration business is booming. But Microsoft recently lost a key business software exec to Nokia. Now, as eCRM Guide reports, Microsoft has regrouped, naming three new presidents to key divisions at the company.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has announced the promotion of three insiders as presidents of key divisions at the software giant.
The appointments, announced Friday, include a replacement for former Business Division president Stephen Elop, who left Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) to become CEO of Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia two weeks ago.
