Sailing Smooth With API Management – Pt-1


November is always bundled with wisdom (#TechEd Sessions) and nice gestures – giving us an opportunity to express our gratitude (#thanksgiving). Thanks to TechEd and all SCN community members for their contribution.

Well said, “Intelligent Enterprises Are Integrated EnterprisesSAP’s Cloud Integration 2021 Highlights Bearing this as a mission statement; am coming up with a series on API Management. There are already lot of blogs and articles over SCN on API Management – do checkout for more details (few of the latest).

Why am I coming up with these series since already plenty of good articles are available?

Since a lot being offered by SAP now; new and open additions to the offerings have given opportunity for self-explore to customers and partners. Am trying to simplify my learning experience in a sequential mode (with a series of articles).

  • Overview & System setup (Cloud Foundry trial account)
  • POC – Registering CPI SOAP Service
  • POC – Registering external OData service (Northwind Service)
  • POC – Registering SuccessFactors OData service (through API Management)

Who can follow these?

Any technical or functional consultant (SAP & Non-SAP) – ABAPERS, Integration consultants (PO/CPI/Boomi/Any), UI/UX consultants, SaaS (SuccessFactors/Fieldglass/Concur/Any), JAVA etc. Sky is the limit.
