In a move aimed at creating ''greater agility'', Microsoft has reorganized its business into three divisions.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer yesterday announced the reorganization, which will split the company into the Microsoft Platform Products & Services Division, Microsoft Business Division and Microsoft Entertainment and Devices Division. Ballmer will appoint a president to each division.

Microsoft Platform Products & Services Division includes the Windows Client, Server and Tools, as well as MSN business units.

''The platform groups have great expertise in creating a software platform and user experience that touches millions of people,'' Ballmer said in a statement. ''By combining these areas of expertise, we will deliver greater value to our customers.''

''These changes are designed to align our business groups in a way that will enhance decision-making and speed of execution, as well as help us continue to deliver the types of products and services our customers want most,'' said Ballmer.

The Platform Products and Services Division will actually have two presidents initially -- Kevin Johnson and Jim Allchin.
