The results from our annual survey of Aviatrix Certified Engineers (ACEs) are here! They reveal surprising findings from cloud, networking, and security practitioners with boots on the ground.
This year's survey included over 400 global respondents, with over half of the respondents from enterprise organizations with more than 2,000 employees.
Among the key findings:
“Cost controls” and “visibility and troubleshooting” are the two biggest hurdles to taking full advantage of public cloud
40% of respondents are using a “lift and shift” approach to cloud security, or moving security strategies directly from their on-prem environments into the cloud
Realistic cloud budgets are needed, especially as GenAI initiatives take flight
Over 60% of respondents struggle to hire candidates with the necessary cloud networking skills
