Recommendations for approaches to planning with S4HC

Obviously, S4HC is pretty thin when it comes to Financial Planning - having the option to upload from a spreadsheet is all very well - but what have others found is a good solution for actually doing financial planning?

For a sales / manufacturing company, ideally we would like to be able to start planning from a sales volume perspective - and then potentially to extrapolate this to a margin based plan (for example by using list prices to value up a revenue plan; and standard cost estimates to value a COGS etc). Is there any easy way to achieve this sort of integration without having to do a lot of development.

What are others doing in this area?

Thanks in advance!

    The world has obviously moved on a lot since this post.

    I presume now that the best practce approach would be to start with some of the best practice planning content delivered in SAC.

    There is a plan to integrate IBP (SAP Integrated Business Planning) and S4HC. This integration is still on Work in progress status though to my knowledge.

    We're looking at SAP Cloud Analytics Planning to do our budgeting and financial planning (and other non-SAP packages as well). Considering you'd want more S&OP elements Integrated Business Planning may be better for you, but as Mariya mentions below I don't see a native integration documented anywhere (despite it being part of the cloud landscape like SAP Cloud Analytics).
