      Hi Mah,

      It all depends on the business needs and what you are trying to achieve.  One thing to understand is "Embedded" is heavily IT dependent, while "Standard" is mainly LOB oriented as explained in many articles.  You have to list out the real reason for using one over the other.  As you are already aware, Embedded is KF model and while Standard is Account model.  Also,  in Embedded ACTUAL data don't have to be brought to BPC cubes and it will be realtime, while in Standard you have to load that into a BPC Cube using DM package(PC).  Also Embedded has good Web interface using Design Studio 1.3+ while using Standard Web front is not good.  Also Embedded has Matrix Security, which Standard lacks.  In Embedded, no separate MDM is needed like Classic,which is a big relief.

      Hope this helps...


      P.S:  Sales Planning works seemlessly well in Embedded.  Standard is good for Financial Planning "only".
