Dear MDG Experts,

My current customer (Public sector) plan to create business partners from external systems authentic sources using web service calls via SAP PI/PO, and all seems perfect.

The problem is that while creating a business partner, the web service call will collect purposely more data to store it in MDG layer staging tables without creating any Change Request for future use, and create a single business partner.

Example 1, A person is needed in SAP MDG to be created as a business partner but the other family members (like husband or wife, children etc..) information will also be collected only for future use but to be stored in MDG without any CR change request in Ztables.

Example 2, The customer would like to store in MDG almost all historical data for future use, with preference to keep sync Business partner data between authentic sources and MDG.


The issue that I am facing is that the volume and the complexity of these Ztable can be to very high (meaning millions of records) according to their requirements.

Is MDG layer a real staging area to store millions of records for future use?

In advance many thanks for your help,
