when to use a BAPI ?



This might seem like a simple question to all the experts here. Can anyone give me some real time scenario where BAPIs "must be" used.

I completely understand how to call BAPIs from ABAP, java etc.. I have the compete list of all Standardized BAPIs. My question is when will we decide that in this situation we need to use the standardized BAPIs or create a new BAPI ??

When I browse for samples I get code such as to create a sales order thru a BAPI. When will we go for creating a sales order thru a BAPI and not the standard SAP screen ??

Just need some clear understanding on this..

thanks for ur time
