I’m a new ServiceNow Administrator/Developer and a client ask me to develop a solution to integrate the ServiceNow data with SAP or vice versa.

And I have the following concerns:

1.-How can I get an instance in SAP to develop on it and start with the API integration?

2.-Servicenow is a cloud base service and I think that the SAP it’s a desktop software and it start to integrate it on the cloud, right?

3.-Im thinking of use the REST API of ServiceNow to send and receive the data, it’s there any other workaround just to be aware?

Note: I´m not an expert a just been in ServiceNow for like 3 months so if you have any tip that could help me in the future I will be grateful to hear it.
