Having on-premises servers costs money too.
Having frustrated programmers costs money too.
One team lead I talked to told me they were modernizing their applications, rewriting old VB desktop apps to modern web apps, even using containers, but not in the cloud.
That right there costs a lot and adding cloud to it wouldn't increase costs significantly.
They even bought a whole new server park to host all these applications, so money really isn't the issue.
I am able to help customers save money by going to the cloud.
That all depends on how much of it you use though.

So these decisions really aren't cost based.
And even if it was, it would be insane to have an accountant decide over the IT landscape.
You'd get stuff like "We're not using SQL Server because Mongo DB is cheaper (I read that on a forum)".
Although that is what's happening now, we're not moving to the cloud because management "feels" it's not secure or whatever reason they have.
Maybe if all your developers and IT managers are calling cloud you should move to the cloud Unsure | :~
