The Chief of Microsoft Windows has been appointed as Pavan Davuluri, an IIT Madras graduate

An IIT Madras alumnus has been designated as the team a leader for Microsoft Windows, an appointment that spurs pride in the country. IIT Madras graduate Pavan Davuluri has been selected to lead development efforts on both fronts after the Windows and Surface teams at Microsoft came together.

According to Windows Central, this decision was made following a brief time of separation during which Windows was temporarily placed under Microsoft’s new artificial intelligence division. Within Microsoft’s Engineering and Devices group, under Rajesh Jha’s direction, the merging of the Windows and Surface teams represents a return to a well-known organizational structure.

Who is Pavan Davuluri? Know more:

Leading Windows engineering has been handed over to Pavan Davuluri, who was previously in charge of Microsoft’s hardware programs.

In addition from being the CEO of Microsoft’s Web and Advertising division, Parakhin also took on the responsibility of Windows. He was managing products such as Copilot, Edge, and Bing.

But a review of team structures had been prompted by recent changes at Microsoft, such as Mustafa Suleyman being named CEO of a new AI business.

After his team was merged into the newly established AI division, Parakhin announced that he intended to look for options outside the organization. As such, Rajesh Jha is now in charge of Windows, meaning that the same individual who directs Surface development is now in charge of Windows development. Windows fans are happy with this choice since it indicates increased cooperation and coherence between Microsoft’s software and hardware projects.

What changes are taking place at Microsoft?

Mustafa Suleyman, a co-founder of DeepMind, was recently appointed CEO of a new artificial intelligence (AI) branch by Microsoft. Mikhail Parakhin’s team has been integrated into this new AI section as a result. All of these developments line up with Microsoft’s future plans of releasing Surface devices with Arm technology and advanced artificial intelligence features.
