Microsoft Org Tweaks And Other Odds and Ends
Looks like Microsoft's getting ready to disclose what Bob McDowell's team has been up to.
McDowell, the former head of Microsoft Consulting Services, is pushing the business advisory services aspects of that same MCS. One might guess that means they'll bring more advice to partners attacking tricky projects. Or one hopes.
Good sources say the company will tell top integrator and ISV partners gathered in Redmond this week about the effort and what it will do for them.
In addition, insiders say Jared Wheeler is no longer the go-to "Enterprise Guy" in Simon Witt's organization. He's now in "sales excellence." It will be interesting to see if Microsoft brings a partner-focused veteran into that role.
