@Bret Mantey gives some excellent points but the biggest advantage when giving a presentation to management is the cost of being down. Your CFO should be able to give a cost per hour of lost revenue for downtime then the math is pretty simple to compare DRaaS to all the components that Bret talked about.
As a contractor, I laughed in the face of a CEO of a mortgage company who would not spend the $10,000 to upgrade his software to run on Windows 10 versus the support cost that his IT team spent maintaining the old software, on old computers, and interface with new applications to keep his people running.
If it costs you more to keep the old stuff than to upgrade it really doesn't matter how good your DR is, you are still losing money.
