The reorganisation is allegedly going to be a merger that "involves [Microsoft's] enterprise customer unit and one or more of its SME-focused divisions," TechCrunch reports. 



An earlier report from Bloomberg also mentioned that a reorganisation was in the works, and that it would involve a shift towards added emphasis in Microsoft's cloud business. "The shifts will be some of the most significant in the sales force in years," it said.

Microsoft didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
