Microsoft Fires CIO
The position of chief information officer is demanding by definition. It requires
a masterful blend of technological knowledge, business acumen and political
savvy. When you hold that position for the world's largest technology firm,
it must be even more demanding.
Details are scant, but we do know that Microsoft
has just fired its CIO. The official reason was a "violation of company
policies," according to a written statement released by Microsoft. Until
the company names a permanent CIO, General Manager Shahla Aly and Vice President
Alain Crozier will cover Scott's duties.
Scott served as Microsoft's CIO since joining the company in 2005. He held
the same position at General Electric.
