Microsoft CIO ousted

Stuart Scott, who led Microsoft’s internal IT department, which is “responsible for security, infrastructure, messaging and business applications for all of Microsoft, including support of Microsoft product groups, corporate business groups, and the global sales and marketing organization,” was shown the door early this month.

An editor’s note on Scott’s Microsoft bio page, updated Monday, states, “Stuart Scott’s employment at Microsoft ended in early November 2007.”

Mary Jo Foley at ZDNet has more, including a statement from Microsoft confirming Scott’s departure adding that he “was terminated after an investigation for violation of company policies.” The statement says that’s all they’re going to say.
