Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is reportedly close to initiating a major reorganization that will look to solidify Microsoft’s transition from software company to “devices and services company.” The news comes from AllThingsD, which claims that top management at the Redmond-based company is worried because Ballmer is working on the reorganization on his own, without consulting “the wider leadership group.” One unnamed insider at Microsoft said the changes coming at the company are likely  ”going to be titanic,” and he or she continued by noting that this is “the first time in a long time that it feels like that there will be some major shifts, including some departures.” Ballmer will reportedly announce his reorganization plans internally to Microsoft executives on July 1st.
