Today is the last day of Microsoft’s fiscal year, and it looks like the software maker will kick off its new fiscal year with fresh reorganizations. Bloomberg reports that Redmond will be announcing a reorganization of its sales department, that’ll be affecting the Worldwide Commercial Business which is currently being led by Jean-Philippe Courtois and Judson Althoff. The latest reorganization is expected to be one of the biggest in the recent years and it will also result in layoffs. The reorganization could possibly impact Microsoft’s local marketing efforts in countries all around the world as well.

Bloomberg reports that Microsoft is aiming to shift the focus of its sales team to better sell its cloud services in order to gain more market share and take over Amazon. That isn’t unexpected at all, as Microsoft’s cloud business has brought in a lot of revenue for the company, and it’s expected to continue thriving in the near-future. It isn’t known how exactly the new sales reorganization will affect Microsoft’s consumer-oriented products, but we may also see smaller reorganizations in other departments at Redmond according to a report from the Puget Sound Business Journal.

The latest reorganizations are expected to be unveiled on July 5.
