Microsoft CIO resigns amid company layoffs

Jim DuBois will vacate his post as Microsoft's CIO, The Seattle Times reports.

Mr. DuBois resigned from his role as part of Microsoft's recent decision to reorganize the company, according to GeekWire. Mr. DuBois, who served as the company's CIO since 2013, first joined Microsoft in 1993.

Mr. DuBois' departure came one day after Microsoft confirmed it would cut thousands of positions as part of its restructuring effort July 6. The layoffs are part of Microsoft's new strategy to shift its sales focus to cloud services rather than the company's traditional server and desktop products.

Kurt DelBene, who previously served as Microsoft's strategy chief, will fill some of the previous CIO responsibilities as the company's chief digital officer, according to The Seattle Times. He will manage a unit comprised of Microsoft's strategy, real estate, operations and internal IT groups.
