The SAP Business Accelerator Hub is a web application hosted by SAP to discover, explore, and test SAP and partner APIs (application programming interfaces) that are required to build extensions or process integrations.
APIs in SAP solutions use various protocols, documentation, and access mechanisms. Application and integration developers must have a consistent overview of the APIs available in the relevant SAP systems (deployed on-premise and in the cloud). Testing APIs and building prototypes also involves organizing access to relevant systems and tenants for developers.
SAP Business Accelerator Hub addresses these challenges by offering a central catalog of APIs, along with an integrated test environment in the cloud for easy testing. SAP Business Accelerator Hub covers APIs from SAP S/4HANA, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP BTP, SAP Hybris, and more.
SAP Business Accelerator Hub therefore simplifies the development process and reduces effort for:
Application developers when building extensions (for example, when building extensions to applications within the same Line of Business), mobile applications, or Web applications.
Integration developers when developing process integrations to third-party systems (Application-to-Application [A2A] or Business-to-Business [B2B]).
