A "significant restructuring" may be afoot at Microsoft (MSFT) sources tell AllThingsD, as changes designed to simplify the company's organizational structure and "configure the company around devices and services" are in the works. Expanded roles for several executives including the presidents of the Servers and Tools, Skype Communications, and Interactive Entertainment divisions may be in the cards, although the details of the shuffle could "change substantively" going forward. Nomura cites shareholder pressure as a factor in the potential shakeup.
