Course information


Course Summary

APIs are the digital building blocks for developers to build modern apps as well as open integrations. APIs are used to access data from business systems (like ERP, HR, and Sales) in a secure manner, trigger business processes, and leverage technical services such as machine learning, translation, and tax calculations into your business systems. The solution provides tools and methodologies to carry out full-lifecycle API management that involves design, implementation, testing, publication, operations, and consumption of APIs for you to deliver cutting-edge apps and integrations.
You’ll begin your learning journey by activating the SAP API Management service on an SAP Cloud Platform trial account. This course will include use cases from business scenarios and demo examples from instructors.
By the end of the course, you’ll know how to leverage the power of API management while building enterprise-grade consumer apps, integrate data and processes across disparate data sources in real time, manage and operate microservices, and efficiently monetize your APIs.
