Businesses are migrating more workloads into the cloud, but on-premises remains a strategic modality for many, according to Cisco’s 2023 Global Networking Trends Report.

Cisco on Tuesday unveiled its study, shedding light on IT professionals changing priorities and concerns. Security and complexity emerged as two huge challenges they are facing. Moreover, many of them are adopting multicloud strategies with the goal of making their applications more secure and better managing their security. And to some extent, cloud is not looming as large as it did in previous years when it comes to networking decisions.

The vendor surveyed 2,500 IT decision makers in 13 countries.

The study also broke down whether businesses are operating their workloads and applications in the cloud or on-premises. The data IT professionals provided might prove surprising. Fifty percent of them said the majority of their workloads exist on-premise.

Raakhee Mistry is the senior director of marketing for cloud and compute at Cisco. Channel Futures posed some questions to her about cloud migration and customer challenges.
