Yes you need SAP DB credentials to do any sort of a call to that db. You can create a Link server to SAP DB and call any object in that db from your server.

After creating the linked server you can access any object in that server by

linkedservername.schemaname.objectname

i.e
SELECT * FROM SQLServer1.dbo.tblCustomer

You can access any functions or SP's in this manner
