If your applications (SaaS) and their data are gravitating to the cloud, so should your analytics.
Oracle Analytics Cloud brings the advantage of a managed service where Oracle manages the upgrades and the infrastructure.
Of course, you can take advantage of both on premises and cloud by running a hybrid solution and gradually move to a completely cloud-based solution. For example, you could initially leave your data on premises and have your analytics in the cloud on Oracle Analytics Cloud.
But if your data resides on premises and you wish to continue to run your analytics platform on a cloud infrastructure (IaaS), then consider Oracle Analytics Server.
