The ABAP RESTful Application Programming Model (RAP) is an important part of the SAP portfolio. It enables developers to create modern business applications that adhere to SAP Fiori design guidelines and access data in SAP S/4HANA and other systems through OData-based services. This model supports both cloud and on-premise deployments, allowing businesses to take advantage of the latest innovations from the SAP BTP ABAP Environment. With its ability to build business objects and services based on Open Data Protocol (OData) standards, the ABAP platform can be used for various scenarios within an organization. Furthermore, many of these services are provided as part of SAP’s standard offering, meaning that organizations don’t need to invest heavily in additional software or hardware when using this model. Using ABAP RAP can help any organization leverage the power of the SAP platform in a cost-effective way, while also providing they have access to the latest technologies needed for modern business applications.
