Simple answer yes.

If on premise HPC doesn't change to reflect the way the software is
developed today then the users will in the future prefer cloud HPC.

I guess it is a brave new world for on premise HPC as far as that the
users now, and likely more in the future, will have alternatives thus
forcing the on premise HPC to "compete" in order to survive.
