Should I use an OData server or a custom XSJS service implemenation?

We are on a SAP HCP. For our application we need to provide a Web API. We are unsure wheather to use an OData Service or a custom XSJS service implementation for this.

A few things we need to accomplish. All items also need to do a certain user authorization.

  • Select data from the database
  • Writing data into the database
  • Providing API functions that don't perfrom CRUD operations on the database, but for example send data to another server in the background

In my understanding an OData service would only fit the first two items, but does not provide a way to do anything that is not database (CRUD) related. Is this correct?

Are there any best practices for this scenario? Any suggestions and pointings in the right direction are welcome.
