Technology alone is not sufficient in addressing technology problems effectively; the human and team factors are equally important. Engineering workforce costs will far outstrip cloud platform costs. Therefore, productivity and having the correct skillsets need to play a big role in decision making. 

The aim is to establish a way of working and automate engineering pipelines to minimise waste in the process of evaluating, adpting and delivering on solutions.
